I just read your story "only in retrospect could the island become real" on elimae. It's devastating, the way life has gotten away from the narrator. There is always the option for something concrete or "something else." Beautifully done. Congrats!
Hi Frank. Just read your piece at decomP (about the various "Franks") and your interview at Outside Writers Collective. Really enjoyed your fiction, and it was interesting to read that you'd spent some time in Korea and Japan.
Thanks for commenting on Love, Story, Frank. And I love it that you list Barth among favorite authors. I just put up the opening line of Sotweed Factor on Fnaut the other day. One of the funniest historical novels ever.
Hi Frank. We are connected through fb, so add me as a contact here if you wish. I would add you, but I don't see where to do it.
frank, thanks for the fav for "Regret". i hope, wherever you are, cut off from the net, that you have a great time and christmas cheers. whoville is never far.
Hi Frank, welcome to the Prick of the Spindle group. Warm wishes from the entire crew.
It's good to find another wayguk on Fictionaut. I just got back from a few years in the morning calm; "Itaewon" is perfect. The garbage piles, the dirty mix of people, hooker hill and all the bars - it's all still fresh for me, and you've stirred it up beautifully.
You taught English, I assume. I was in Gangnam; before that, at a university south of Seoul. Yourself?
To the esteem MR>H, I give the secret success sign of Brotherhood and of sweet-oh-so-sweet Chaos.
Oh. Hi. Hello and things.
Whaddup, Mr. Hinton? Welcome to the FNaut.
