Lucid Membrane - Tantra Bensko


I teach fiction writing online, focusing on experimental. I promote Experimental Writing through a large resource site of that name, and Exclusive Magazine, FlameFlower Contest, and LucidPlay Publishing. I have 170 creative writing publications in magazines, and many books including 4 chapbooks and this full length book.

Product description:

Short stories cover the range of the self, from the subconscious, “reg'lar” and expanded employing Absurdist whimsy, New Wave Fabulism, zany Realism, and Experimental explosions that move outside conventions in inventive ways. A young man tattoos a royal flush on the behinds of some of his classmates, the grand opening of his glow in the dark technique being the homecoming dance. Another man teams up with him, as he paints with hair regrowth ointment on skin, and they create a hair circus. A young woman finds a Sasquatch to sit for her elderly father in the rural south, while another lady nearby learns to read with her breasts, feeling the heat of the print against her skin.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Many say my stories puts them in altered states of awareness that they find very pleasurable. The book provides portals out of linearity, and identification of the self only as that which resides inside the skin, out of the default storyline based on a plot arc made of problems. The readers get to travel into other parts of the continuum, flying higher and delving deeper into the dreamy aspects of the self. To play.

And it's a transmedia book, so much of it is online. It's website is generous with including other people, and readers can take that further by putting the password that resides in the book into the Secret Womb page of the website, for more participatory fiction, images, and chances to collaborate with each other.

Q: Why did you go indie?

I never considered anything else. There is a love behind indie publishing that I like being part of. Tim Roux, of Night Publishing, does what he does not for commercial reasons, but out of a sense of mission. He's a kind, thoughtful man, with a great sense of humor, and has made friends out of a lot of writers he publishes.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre? Kyle Muntz, Tom Robbins, Italo Calvino
