Robert Emmett

Publisher info

Robert Emmett creates odd but familiar worlds and fills them with a bizarre cast of characters attempting the impossible.

He has spent most of his time around Chicago, making strange art and playing in loud experimental rock bands.
His stories usually come from the fringes of reality and carry a humorous and dreamlike feel. He cites Philip K Dick, Salvador Dali and David Lynch as influence and inspiration for his writings: fairy tales for the Internet age, bedtime stories for weird children.
He recently released his first book, a collection of short fiction and prose, called 'MEOWING ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE', and continues creating his unique brand of weirdness for this all-too-normal corner of reality.

He began creating at a very early age. Drawings and Poems gave way to Song-Writing and Short Stories, and then essays, Novels and the occasional Manifesto.
