Boris D. Schleinkofer


He is a fictional character in the Horror-Play “The Greatest Practical Joke Ever”, by Shaytan Komp’ü’tor. He has never made love to a beautiful woman, never wallowed in fresh kill, never found a briefcase full of hundred-dollar bills. In fact, he doesn't even exist at all. So there.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
For novels or screenplays, I spend a long time, sometimes months or even years in one case, thinking over the premise of the work & its world-environs. I'll keep lots of notes. I usually build the world before I start populating it with characters. Once the world has settled into place, almost all of the characters' actions will tend to be dictated by the environment, so I can start building the story from there. Then I grab a handful of my favorite intoxicant, get someplace where no one will try to directly engage me & scribble out first-draft material until I get bored. This is where it gets spooky: I don't really feel like I'm coming up with much of this stuff by myself. It's a lot like listening to someone whispering the story directly into my head.
How do you approach cover design?
I approach cover-design in much the same way I approach writing itself: I keep an impression of the work in mind while I relax & open myself to visions, & the perfect image just appears. Since this type of art comes directly from the subconscious, it can't help but to be phrased in archetypal symbology & will tell a whole multi-faceted story by itself, in the 'language' of pictures.

This is the second of my collections of chapbooks. It is 'poetry' - whatever that means. The same warning that went into the first collection also applies to this book: some of it will hurt you in places that you can't reach. Not very much of it is rhymed or metered.

This is poetry, a collection of four chapbooks written over the span of twenty years. It is not nice. Some of it will hurt you in deep places that you cannot reach. You have been warned. -- I should probably also mention that only about a third of the material is the rhyming, metered stuff.
