Interview with The Korea Times

What are dragedies? Have I ever encountered Guisin-dong? What's the influence of shamanism in my 'Seoul Villages'? Why are alleyways so important? I had the pleasure to answer Jon Dunbar's very stimulating questions in this interview for The Korea Times ("Short story anthology explores magical realism in Seoul alleys" - 20200506):

Sorry, still no photos of Kim Mudangnim...

'Seoul Villages' - download your free copy

Don't try to escape this ghost neighborhood, don't waste your energy tearing off that plant, and don't even think about catching Korea's most elusive shaman: you just can't shake off death. So let this fictional Seoul claim your soul.

'Seoul Villages' includes 12 'Seoul dragedies', among which 'Year Of The Dog', and 'Guisin-dong', and a few stories initially published in French.

You can download for free 'Seoul Villages' along with my other free ebooks 'Year Of The Dog', and 'Guisin-dong' on Google Play Books. Check my website for my other books (y compris en français).

Your comments and reviews are welcome (e.g. on Google Play Books, on Amazon, on dragedies website...).

10 ans aux oubliettes de l'histoire parallèle (the forgotten forgotten)

Tiens, j'ai oublié de fêter les 10 ans de "La Ligue des Oubliés". C'est sans doute un acte manqué (comme le bouquin en question d'ailleurs).



Au passage, le site en .com n'est plus actif depuis des lustres, mais le site officiel existe toujours (http://laliguedesoublies.blogspot.com/), et l'opus est toujours disponible sur Amazon.com.


---

I forgot to celebrate the 10th anniversary of "The League of The Forgotten". A failure consistent with the book itself it seems...

Year Of The Dog (free ebook)


Initially published in French 10 years ago ('L'Année du Chien' - 'Breves', 2007), 'Year Of The Dog' remains so far my only non-fiction Seoul 'dragedie', and the only one written from a foreigner's point of view. Yet it's not my first story featuring a dog - that would be 'Le regard d'un ami' (1979), where the narrator himself is canine. 

Which, as you'll see, doesn't make me humane.

I met this dog in Sanggye-dong, Nowo-gu, along Danghyeoncheon, long before Seoul upgraded it into a park. That streamlet also appears in my essay "Inhuman, all too human Seoul" (picture of an old timer who used to grow vegetables there).

Like for 'Guisin-dong', you can download this story for free. I hope you enjoy it, but welcome any comments (e.g. on dragedies website, on Amazon...).

Guisin-dong (free ebook)

Here's a small gift for you: 'Guisin-dong', a short fiction I wrote a couple of years ago (part of my collection of  Seoul 'dragedies' in English). 

Guisin-dong is not the kind of Seoul neighborhoods you want to visit, but now you can download it for free, right here:  Guisindong2012StephaneMOT.


Any comments and critics are welcome (e.g. on this site, on the Facebook page, on Amazon...).

Interview with Colin Marshall

If you have one hour to spare, I invite you to listen to the conversation Colin Marshall and I had in a Seoul cafe a couple of months ago.

We both share a love for roaming cities and writing about them, but only Colin is blessed with an uncanny gift for maieutics, a truly clear mind, and a spellbinding voice. If you enjoy that interview as much as I did, praise him. And that annoying gibberish of mine? Don't try to put it on a hot summer day, a night unnecessarily shrunk by insignificant World Cup games, or even my Frenchness.

So take a cup of coffee, and come sit down with us.
