Dogzplot 2011

My intention was merely to peek at one or two pieces of flash in the latest Dogzplot anthology, but a half-hour later, I’d devoured the entire thing. Per usual, the themes in this edition run the gamut: sex, drugs, life, death, love, hate, pineapples, people who appear to be homeless but actually have homes in tiny rooms in the backs of their daughter’s girlfriend’s houses, finding one’s daughter at a strip club, going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. As for style, it’s as varied as the themes. Indeed, if Dogzplot excels at anything (and it does!), it’s bending and warping and re-shuffling the English language in order to reinvent the art of storytelling one page at a time.
