Zero Squared #77: Quitting Bizarre Writing

Jul 29th, 2016 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

zeropod77Chris Kelso is a Bizzaro fiction writer and he’s the guest this week on the Zero Books podcast. In this episode you’ll hear why Chris is thinking about quitting writing, how Bizarro fiction was mostly just an escapist fantasy Chris used to compensate for his failing love life, and why it is that, in general, writing fiction is a fools errand.

Here's a description of Chris Kelso’s upcoming novel Unger House Radicals:

When aspiring and nihilistic film-maker Vincent Bittacker falls in love with mercurial serial-killer Brandon Swarthy they decide to embark upon a bloody journey to re-define cinema and create their own sub-culture - Ultra-Realism.

In this episode you’ll hear clips from Monty Python, some homegrown vaporwave, a bit of Fry and Laurie, a short clip from Portlandia, a clip from Macintosh Plus again. I can’t get enough Vaporwave.
