This Blossom In Your Side: New Essay on Kafka

I have a new essay up over at Fantasy Matters on the ever fantastic Kafka–if you have never read his shorter work (which is speculative fiction at its finest), then perhaps my essay can give you some tips on which stories to try out. Hint: you get crazy village people,  a boy with a “strange” blossom in his side, a machine that tattoos its victims to death,  and a bucket that can fly. And no,  Kafka was not on LSD (in case you were wondering).

But right now I’m am busy writing the catalogue essay for the wonderful artist Xi Zhang, whose work fuses the fantastic, pop culture and Buddhist philosophy. In September and October, I’ll be blogging more about the upcoming Cute and Creepy exhibit, so stay tuned!
