About Me

Steve Gowin produces corporate video in San Francisco.

Why do you write?

If I could ride a unicycle a bit or had proclivity for brick laying, I might do those things instead. My Dad claimed he was a good writer, and I suppose I got an interest in it from him. A nice thing to have left me.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Flannery O'Connor
Cormac McCarthy
Barbara Kingsolver
Joseph Conrad
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Jorge Luis Borges
Melville,
Charles Portis...

and filmmakers
Robert Altman
WC Fields
Jean Renoir
John Huston
Werner Herzog
Errol Morris...

McCabe and Mrs. Miller is the best film ever made. Unforgiven is a close second, followed by Grand Illusion. No Country for Old Men should be seen with There Will be Blood and Unforgiven on a triple feature... every day.

Larry Strattner – Jan 05, 2016

good picks in the movie dept. My fourth would be Wild Bunch. My fave McCarthy book is Blood Meridian and I always thought McCarthy's books couldn't be made into movies.

Arturo Ruiz – Sep 04, 2015

Thanks for your comments on my poem, Steven. Appreciate you stopping to read.

James Robison – Apr 04, 2014

Appreciate your words about Morphine. The story. Not...well...the opiate. But thinking about it, fiction and opiates may be equally helpful to humans, though fiction is pretty dangerous.

Tabatha Stirling – Feb 19, 2014

Thank you so much for the comment x

Thanks for your response to "On the Roof." So glad you found the piece engaging!

Nonnie Augustine – Nov 04, 2013

Thank you, Steven. I'm glad you read about my Irish boys. I keep finding more and more Irish in my blood. There's French and Austrian, too, and even a bit of Welsh, but man, a lot of Irish!

Beatrice Louise – Nov 02, 2013

Thank you for your comment, Apple abuse is somethin to be read aloud about for sure.

Thanks for your comments on "IN YOUR ABSENCE." I just read your tar pits story--stunning-- and on the basis of that, I'll read more of your work.

Neil McCarthy – Jul 14, 2013

Thanks for reading and commenting on my poem Steven. Cheers!

Jenny Rawls – Jul 13, 2013

Thanks for the fav and suggestion on "Sylvia" Steve. The last line felt like it was missing something.

Allen Hope – Jul 10, 2013

Heh Heh, Steve. Another Billy Idol fan I see. Plastic Jesus/Magnetic Mary reminds me of a photo I saw during the Terry Schiavo protests in Florida in 2005. Maybe you've seen it. Some guy driving around with a lifesize Jesus Christ nailed to a cross that was anchored to a boat trailer. It was hinged to allow the cross to pop up for its normal display. It was often referred to as Jesus Christ on a Trailer Hitch. I think that's taking things a bit far, but on the flip side it seems like a good starting point for a story.

Anyway, thanks for the read and comment on Sensation: Holy Virgin Mary, written in response to the controversy over Chris Ofili's interpretation of the Virgin Mary.

Ray Shea – Jul 07, 2013

Thanks for the comments on Supernova. Much appreciated.

Jenny Rawls – Jul 06, 2013

Thank you for the kind feedback on "Practice" Steve. I'm not as comfortable with prose as I am with poems, so your feedback means a lot.

Allen Hope – Apr 21, 2013

Seems I'm a bit late to the party here at Fictionaut, Steven. I've been waiting quite some time for an invitation and it finally arrived. Anyway, reading stories like "Daddy Walked the Pits" is a big part of what inspires me to write. I look forward to reading the rest of your fiction/poetry. Also, thanks for the comment on "Parade," as well as the fav.

Hi Steven - thank you so much for commenting on Daddio.

Gary Hardaway – Feb 26, 2013

I have actually watched "Plan 9 from Outer Space". Poor Bela- died before the shoot was done. I understand that's where the the ape in a space helmet came from. Loved the Johnny Depp portrayal. Thanks for reading "I'm Waiting"- the encouragement means a great deal to me.

Sara Fitzpatrick Comito – Feb 22, 2013

Steve, it's a real treat to see your comment at "Listing." I get the idea you do know something about poetry. I guess the most important thing is that it moves you. And if mine did, then that makes my day. Thank you.

Carol Reid – Feb 22, 2013

Glad you liked my story, thanks!

Aaron Sabatine – Feb 22, 2013

Steve- Thanks very much for reading and commenting on Black Bombers.

Mathew Paust – Jan 27, 2013

Steven, I didn't give it a helluva lotta thought. It just sorta squirted out. Glad you liked it. I didn't add that while we waited by the stage door Bob Denver rode up on a bicycle and escorted us to the set. Friendly, humble, seemed like an old friend.

Gintas Bradunas – Jan 27, 2013

Thanks for your read and comment! Glad to hear that you appreciate the work Teach for America is doing.

ABxx – Jan 18, 2013

Thank you, Steven:)

Barry Basden – Jan 17, 2013

Thanks, Steven, for your comments on Aerospace. "Rosie's Back!" was the banner on a small cement block bldg. Inside Rosie and the Screamers, including her brother--a goth-looking cadaver on lead guitar--pounded out Rolling Stones covers...the joint was rocking...

ABxx – Jan 12, 2013

Hello, Steven. Thank you for your insightful commentary on "The Swiss Lunch". I look forward to reading your work.

Janice D. Soderling – Jan 05, 2013

Hi Steven and apologies for not responding faster to your kind comment on my microfiction. Newbie navigator. I'm so glad for your approval. Thx again.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jan 05, 2013

You broke into a smile?

Gloria Garfunkel – Jan 04, 2013

It is funny in an absurd way, not being able to concentrate on TV, the lowest of the lows.

Mathew Paust – Jan 03, 2013

Steve, I appreciate that you got so much out of my flash piece "The Crack". It's funny, I've been remembering it periodically all of my adult life and only just then, when I wrote it, did the Freudian implications occur to me. I was too young then to know anything about vaginas or their significance - I think. I have the flying dreams occasionally, too, but always find them exhilarating as they represent a triumph of sorts or an escape for me.

Barry Basden – Jan 03, 2013

Thanks, Steven, for commenting on White Cliffs. "Cinematic" means a lot, and something I most often strive for.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jan 02, 2013

So much kindness and empathy in your Chrysalis comment, means so very much to me. I never even thought of that. The loneliness of bipolar, where you are always on a different plane than everyone else. Thank you for that gift.

Gloria Garfunkel – Jan 02, 2013

So much kindness and empathy in your Chrysalis comment, means so very much to me. I never even thought of that. The loneliness of bipolar, where you are always on a different plane than everyone else. Thank you for that gift.

Gloria Garfunkel – Dec 31, 2012

Interesting variations in spousal relationships to a writer's writing.

Thanks for the funny binocular comment on Sleepy Ranch.

Gloria Garfunkel – Dec 27, 2012

Blue Angel: That's a beautiful comment. Of course they are death machines. And this particular son is my most intuitive and cynical. Thanks for that.

Foster Trecost – Dec 26, 2012

Hi Steven, thanks for reading my story, Eight States Away. I really appreciate your comment, too. fos.

Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my "coffee mug" story. Your kindness ("you’ve sung a true song") has kept me walking on clouds for days. Thank you.

And to tell you the truth, I don't remember how I broke the mug. Funny, I have no memory of how it happened, at all.

Gloria Garfunkel – Dec 06, 2012

Thanks for your insightful comment on The Ring.

Gloria Garfunkel – Dec 04, 2012

Graduate school? You sure you can take the pain?

Hello, Steven, thank you so much for reading a liking my recent eBay silliness!

Gessy Alvarez – Nov 20, 2012

Gary V. Powell – Oct 27, 2012

Thanks for the read and comment of Paris Review. Don't know about Poe, but there is something creepy putting a microscope to the personality of a writer.

John Riley – Oct 25, 2012

Hi, Steven, thanks for reading and commenting on "Muddy Creek." I tried to center it in what I came to think of as a death culture growing up in the country. It's cool you picked up on that.

Foster Trecost – Oct 23, 2012

Hi Steve, thanks for sharing your thoughts on Dog Days. I appreciate the time you took to read, to comment. fos.

Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 20, 2012

Re: Muselmann I am so deeply, deeply flattered. It means a great deal to me and is so, so validating that you said that. I never quite know what reaction to expect when I write about the Holocaust and my relationship to it.

Nonnie Augustine – Oct 18, 2012

Thank you Steve! Meg Pokrass just taught me how to write on walls here, that's why I haven't thanked you properly. Ah, Montmartre!

Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 13, 2012

You are horrible to laugh that the suffering never ends in Great Expectations. I am horrible too. I laugh and read it again and laugh again.

Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 08, 2012

Happy you laughed at Werewolf.

Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 05, 2012

Thanks for your funny comment on Mother's Day. Comments are taking forever to reach me these days and I have to look into it. The story still makes me laugh.

Marda Miller – Aug 28, 2012

Thanks for the welcome Steven. It made me feel, well, welcomed.

Barry Basden – Apr 11, 2012

Thanks for your comments on 'After Hours,' Steve. Hadn't really thought much about the bathrobe. It seems to work better with the gun than, say, sweats, but it's always nice to get a fresh perspective. I really appreciate that.

Steven,

Re: the Blogspot. I retired that particular blog
a few months back.

Forgot to pull the link off my Fictionaut profile.

By summer, I plan to hook up a new website on Word Press.

Best,

Dennis

Thank you for your comments about "Momma's Prayers." I appreciate them very much!

J.A. Pak – Apr 03, 2012

Steven, you do know the sauna is a religion in Korea? They've built multi-storied cathedrals that welcome all, especially men who have been kicked out by their wives and need a place to spend the night. Thanks so much for commenting on "Mixtape".

Linda Simoni-Wastila – Mar 30, 2012

Thanks Steven for your comment and fave of After he failed to wake up. Here's a cyber beer--or a good birch switching, whatever you prefer--to cheer you up. Peace...

James Claffey – Mar 30, 2012

Hi Steven,
Thank you so much for taking the time to ride along with me for a little while on my madcap journey into satire and farce and for leaving a comment. I appreciate your company as I digress into silliness. Ready or not, there's more to come. The Woman in the Wet Raincoat and much much more. It's all in fun! I am looking forward to reading your work, so I'll be back!
