Inside this Noisetrade-exclusive short story collection, I have assembled seven stories that appear unconnected on the surface, but are as intimately connected as any seven stories could be. I’m challenging you to find the connection in order to win a rather unique prize. This book debuts two literary stories, one mystery, three fantasies, and a scifi.
Your job, as the reader, is to first enjoy these seven stories and then, if you’re the treasure-hunting type, figure out why and how they are connected. You must dig for the connection. I will give each reader one (1) guess and the first person to correctly guess the reason for this interconnectedness will win a prize directly related to the answer. Once you have formulated an educated guess, feel free to email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Godspeed and happy hunting…
Lancelot Schuabert has sold his written work to markets like The New Haven Review, McSweeney’s, The Poet’s Market, The World Series Edition of Poker Pro, Encounter, The Misty Review, Carnival, Brink, and many other similar markets. He reinvented the photonovel through COLD BREWED and was commissioned by the Missouri Tourism Board to create a second photonovel. the JOPLIN UNDERCURRENT both fictionalizes and enchants the history and culture of Joplin, Missouri. He's hard at work on his first novel.
His work terraforms new worlds, tears the veil between the natural and supernatural, and jests with the paradoxes of classical metaphysics. When he’s not writing (or tinkering with cinema-ish narrative), he’s dabbling in dozens of different books, listening to people tell their life stories, camping, fishing, exploring unfamiliar territory (there’s a lot in New York), tinkering with new languages (Spanish, currently), exploring random disciplines like chemical engineering, as well as messing around with improv comedy and leisure de main and music.
PLEASE SEND SOUP — he loves soup. Yes, even if it’s summer. Find him in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, Tara, and their attack spaniel, Echo.
