Ostensibly, The Closet of Discarded Dreams about a world of dreams; two precursors influenced its creation: 1. I inevitably skip reading dream scenes because they lack verisimilitude. Chingau–they often bore into stupid! And since I relish challenges [like a dare to write about an artificially intelligent carpet that takes over the world, using just ice cream; Rudy Rucker liked that one.], in this novel I planted chaos, contradiction and irreverence amidst humankind’s dreamy aspirations. 2. I first wrote this as a short story. Nebula Award winner Edward Bryant remarked that that contained “the germ of something in the vein of magic-realism author Jorge Luis Borges,” inspiring me to novelize it. Then the Northern Colo. Writers Workshop issued a challenge: write a novel in 30 days. It took me 45 for the working draft, 60k words, then years of rewrites. It’s 61.3, now. Hopefully, both Ed and Jorge won’t/wouldn’t be too disappointed in their vicarious-bastard offspring. Continue reading
