Someone Shot the Hip, Young Conductor

We are very proud to announce Matthew Sunrich’s debut collection Someone Shot the Hip Young Conductor (available on amazon here).

An ode to existential irreverence, absurdity, and surreal, Someone Shot the Hip Young Conductor is filled with Kafka-esque scenarios: universes collide; skeletons play jazz with gorillas; one-armed gravediggers; extremely courteous vampires; trains that wake the dead.

And, of course, Picasso’s painting of Frankenstein’s monster.

19 stories that range from the bizarre to the extremely bizarre, brimming with dark humor and grotesque originality and just a dash of melancholy.

Matthew Stephen Sunrich is a professional organization enthusiast who has cleared out a space of approximately ten square feet to call his own in rural northwest Georgia. He enjoys comic books, sword and sorcery and horror literature, categorizing things for no apparent reason, and dreaming about Jonathan Winters as an antiquing centaur. His inspirations include Monty Python, They Might Be Giants, Richard Brautigan, and H. P. Lovecraft. He has contributed stories to The Strange Edge and The Modern Monarchist and essays to two Star Wars anthologies put out by Sequart. He has also published a book about the fantasy heroine Red Sonja. He is currently collaborating on a sword-and-sorcery novel and is considering writing a book about horror icon Vampirella. His first crush was Smufette.
