Surrealist Writing: Origins and Early Practitioners

Well, it interested me.  I’ve had little work done this week because I’ve been down with a cold, and outside we seem to be into another of those “polar vortex” things — single digit temperatures at best.  Two reportable items:  the contract went in for “Tit for Tat,” the Little Willie poem for GHOSTS REVENGE with payment received very soon after and my author’s copy of A ROBOT, A CYBORG, AND A MARTIAN WALKED INTO A SPACE BAR arrived.  Something to read during my convalescence.

And one thing to share too, come upon serendipitously while spending some idle time on the internet, an article by Alan Gullette on pre-surrealist and surrealistic writing.  It’s largely an overview, but it names names and can offer a gateway to further exploring.
