David Press


As a mild mannered reporter, David Press lives in Milwaukee where he has taught, run an educational publishing company, sold battery-operated Santa Clauses, and authored six young-adult nonfiction books on abolitionists, music, and sports. But it is his super alter hero-ego, the Imp of the Perverse, you read here. The Imp fights a never-ending battle for genre-busting smoke and mirrors, innovative shuck and jive. In addition to these strange plays, the Imp writes overlapping, contradictory, non-linear micro-episodic fictions. An ebook collection of these fictions, Narrow Escapes, soon will be available as an ebook. Press lives with his wife, Petra, an art teacher, print maker and book artist whose works are exhibited nationally. They sometimes collaborate on unique word/design projects.

Two 30-minute absurd comedies for radio or stage. In The Last Remake of King Kong, Kong has evolved into something very close to a human, and, holy mackerel!, along with Ann Darrow, he acts out his angst-ridden, heroic quest to get back to Skull Island. In Channel Zer-0, Benny Bupkis kvetches and tinkers with 1950s TVs in hopes of finding a frequency of an alternate reality. Oy vey is mir!
