    I believe I’ve read at least one of Mr. Hook’s tales and think he presents an interesting “take” on the world. I’ve been a professional writer for over 20 years, a surrealist, fabulist (though neither label fits comfortably). I’ve appeared in similar mags as Monsieur Hook and hope you’ll pop by my new site for a peek at my work. It’s called “Beautiful Desolation’ and can be found at
    Best wishes,
