Fiction in the surrealist tradition

Waiting Underground (Transitions) by Natasza Goerke

Farewells to Plasma by Natasza Goerke is bloody brilliant. Playful and mind expanding short stories. Maybe my fav surrealist short story writer. Along with Leonora Carrington. I want more!

BLACK HOLE

A story about cosmic evolution, romance, beards & shaggy carpets. From my book The Green Monk. “Where is your black hole? Only survival of the fittest. Black holes.”

Saliva at high tide. The sun soaks in your gastric pool. From The Emissary by Yoko Tawada.

WHITE RABBITS BY LEONORA CARRINGTON

Here is story, from Leonora Carrington, about carnivorous rabbits. And more.
