Essay “On Death, Dreams, and Memory” now published at Luna Luna Magazine

My personal essay, “On Death, Dreams, and Memory,” is now available to read at Luna Luna Magazine. This essay is part of a longer work, a novelette/collection entitled The Sickness Chronicles. I’m really working on perfecting my craft of the creative nonfiction essay, and it turns out that this form is working well with my vision and sensibilities. I seem to keep writing collections or series of an odd length, such as this collection, running at 34 single-spaced pages, roughly 14,000 words, made up of mostly short texts. I think my influences are mostly Borges, Sontag, and Kierkegaard, among others, add Barthes too.
