Want to twist up your Memorial Day weekend? Join Scary Scribes for a reading of Daniel Pearlman’s “The Fetal Position” tonight at 6 p.m. on the Paranormal, Eh? Radio Network here:

This author of two novels and several collections of short stories lived in Spainfor years, and his fantastical stories and novellas began appearing in 1987 in magazines and anthologies such as New England Review, Quarterly West, The MacGuffin, Nemonymous, Amazing Stories, Synergy, and Simulations. In 1995 he founded CLF, Council for the Literature of the Fantastic, whose object was to promote recognition of ignored work of literary quality in fantastic fiction. The project lasted through 1999, but has subsequently been taken up at other websites. He’s an active Member of the SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America).

Pearlman re-casts ordinary objects and has a knack for giving historic events an unexpected twist or two. If you’re looking for an interesting ride, his stories are the ticket.
