A collection of twenty-three bizarro fables in which you'll meet Nobody, a performing primate who wants to chew your children's lips off; pontificate with the Stork, philosopher and feces-eater; rejoice as Nordin "The Noggin" Nobel, noted socialite, is reconciled to his estranged head; share the existential despair of Slothra the suicidal kaiju; celebrate the love of Violet and her rotting lover; explore the meaning of life with Dr. Ebenezer A.T. Horkenheimer, sociopath, and the geography of heaven and hell with Ted the mangled toy. And so much more... It's Aesop, as imagined by John Waters.
Using his fingers as toes, S. D. Foster roams the hills of Dorset, England, for no apparent reason. Using his toes as fingers, he types. His first book, "A Hollow Cube is a Lonely Space" (Eraserhead Press, 2011), is a collection of fantastic fables featuring cartoonish characters and anthropomorphized fruit. Influences include absurdist prose-poet Russell Edson; the exceedingly silly Soviet, Daniil Kharms; Lewis Carroll; pulp horror; existentialism; Edward Gorey; b-movie auteurs Larry Cohen, John Waters and Frank Henenlotter; and, of course, Aesop.
