R. Gullekson writes technical documents for a living but wishes he were getting paid to write fiction. Actually, he wishes he were getting paid to do pretty much anything else besides writing technical documents (see below).
He and his family live in Germany. (But they don’t speak German—can you believe that?) At the time of this writing, they have two dogs and a cat, which technically isn’t hoarding but is close. He also plays basketball; if you were to classify his style, it’s a little like Lebron James’ but with more finesse. If you are an NBA recruiter, please contact him.
The Legend of Hank Twitter (And Four Other Awesome Short Stories)
[8500 words, humor/contemporary]
In his literary debut, R. Gullekson offers five short stories from the intersection of humanity and technology. A jilted MySpace profile shows up unexpectedly demanding answers, a little boy pays the price for wanting to be human, and you discover that being Beyonce’s boyfriend is not all you had hoped it would be. In voices that are offbeat, irreverent, and at times surprisingly somber, these stories explore what it means to live, love, and grieve in the digital age.
