Curious Shapes

Some boys are reared by cruel fathers. For them, the beatings don't stop until they're old enough and large enough to fight back. Carson McCullers once wrote, "The hearts of small children are delicate organs. A cruel beginning in this world can twist them into curious shapes." Duffy Griswold is just such a boy.

About Eric Stringer

Eric Stringer (the borderline psychotic persona of Harvey Stanbrough) is a miserably failed newspaper reporter whose father was obsessed with one soft spot after another and whose mother didn’t love him enough to care that she didn’t love him enough. She swapped him to a camel jocky she met along the border in southern California for a hit off his crack pipe and a swing on his banana hammock.

Eric was born in poverty and clawed his way up to debauchery and tearing the wings off young maidens. Once he got out of prison for failing to vote multiple times in an election (he lived in Chicago at the time, and the law’s the law) he began to write stories about all the strange and unusual things he saw. Some of them were actually there.
