PLYMOUTH — Electrified Skeletons is a powerful, edgy collection of new micro-fiction written by Paul Rogalus, an English Professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. At once literary and accessibly contemporary, this is a must read for intellectual and mainstream audiences.
Published by The Medulla Review Publishing, the editor says of Electrified Skeletons: "From 'Psychos on the Highway' to 'Addicts,' Rogalus writes about the weirdness of everyday life with sardonic humor and gritty realism...This collection turns on themes of adventure and friendship, yet it never strokes the inauthentic device of happily-ever-afters." The book is available at Amazon in print and eBook format.
In addition to his success as a fiction writer and educator, Rogalus has an impressive repertoire of plays and screenplays. His full-length play "Crawling From the Wreckage" was produced in New York City in February 2002 by the American Theatre of Actors, and his one-act plays have been produced in New York, Chicago, and Boston. His short screenplay, "Sid and Walt," won screenwriting contests at the Wildsound Film Festival in Toronto and at the PictureStart Film Festival in New York City, and his short script, "Trans," won the Woods Hole Film Festival Short Screenplay Award.
