On November 8th, our co-operative hosted touring author Brielle Brilliant – whose new novel The Spud has been described as "startling and haunting, an unforgettable debut" – and local writer Margaret Killjoy – whose work Alan Moore calls "scary and energetic" – for a reading of flash fiction. This recording captures three works about dead people by Margaret and an excerpt from Brielle's The Spud.
Brielle Brilliant is a writer, filmmaker, and prank caller. She is the author of The Curtsy Family (Thoughtcrime Press), the director of Streakers, and the voice behind Calls/Deliveries. Her series, Illocutionary Hay, can be found on exhibition at Open House Contemporary in Chicago, IL.
Margaret Killjoy has spent most of her adult life on the road, but is currently nestled into the Appalachian mountains. She is the author of the Danielle Cain series from Tor.com Publishing and publishes reader-supported essays and short fiction through Patreon.
