Synopses & Reviews
In 60 flash fictions, Trevor Dodge celebrates the insanity of falling in love, the absurdity of playing by the rules, and the stupidities of discontent that ensnare us all.
About the Author
Born amidst the sad cartoon of Nixon's America and Evel Knievel's ill-fated jump across the Snake River Canyon, I spent big chunks of my childhood listening to Journey and The Jackson 5. Everything was going fine until my next door neighbor, Doug Martsch, brought over Queen's News of the World album, the one with the cover art of a massive robot squishing people between its fingers. Needless to say, twenty years of nightmares started immediately.
My work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as Hobart, Gobshite Quarterly, Metazen, Western Humanities Review, Golden Handcuffs Review, Gargoyle, Notre Dame Review, Natural Bridge and Fiction International. I am the author of two collections of short fiction (The Laws of Average and Everyone I Know Lives On Roads), a novella (Yellow #10), and collaborator (with Lance Olsen) on the writing anti-textbook Architectures of Possibility: After Innovative Writing. I teach writing, literature, and comics studies at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City and the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.
