Daniel Seery was in a group of a few writers I used to meet up with regularly to swap edits and opinions. He signed with Liberties Press recently, and they will bring out his novel A Model Partner next year.
I love Dan’s stories – I haven’t actually read any of the novel, I only got to see his short stories. But I could spot he has a distinctive style running through them. He creates – or constructs – little worlds. It’s like the stories are his garden shed and he’s spending hours there to get them working properly. And when they work we can move inside them. Hmmm. not sure if this is the right way to put it. Domestic situations will open out to hints of the uncanny, warped reality, eccentricities observed from the interior.
Here’s his website.
