The Busan Writing Group is proud to announce the online release of the Peripheral Portraits ebook. We’ve had a lot of interest in the locally published paper copies, and it’s time to show off our work on Amazon.
This volume started with an unusual word: sonder.
It is the sudden realization that a stranger is living a life as vast and complex as your own. Authors were asked to create work outside of the self, about the people on the margins, the portraits out there in the peripheral.
The result is an extraordinary series of short fiction, poems, and plays that are at times dark, comedic, and downright strange.
Peripheral Portraits is the Busan Writing Group’s third anthology collection, featuring authors living and working all across the Korean Peninsula.
I’m particularly fond of my own fantasy piece in this one, a story about a retired superhero taking care of his equally superpowered daughter as he meets a new love interest.
This work follows last year’s Convergence, and the previous year’s Nothing too Familiar. This book features the works of 14 different authors:
