Other Stories: Dakota McFadzean
Dakota McFadzean (CCS ’12) is known for his ability to combine classic comic conventions with the darkest modern humor, juxtapose the minutiae of the daily grind with the vastness of the universe, render the bleakest truths of human existence in the most charming, accessible style, and still get us to laugh day after day. It’s very exciting to announce that his book Other Stories and the Horse You Rode In On, a collection of short works, will be available this fall from Conundrum Press. Bring on the lawn gnomes, the displaced faces, and the telekinetic pigeons! They’re all there, under a yawning Saskatchewan sky.
