BILL BERRY just can't seem to go down on himself

To the Unlikely Stories home pageThe submission guidelines for Unlikely Stories state that "I particularly enjoy work of an adult, offensive, or weird nature." Until reading the short stories of Bill Berry, I had no idea what adult, offensive, and weird meant. Move over, South Park. Pop culture's new freak-of-the-week is a gay English teacher who writes about Sartre.

Bill says, "I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Presently, I live in columbus, ohio. I went to Antioch College for my BA in literature, and got a master's in Rhetoric/composition. I have been teaching English for 8 years now.

"My writing tends to focus on queer issues and has been called transgressive. I like to being political with my stories. I am always interested in how the political and the personal coincide and collide. I like to explore the concept of identity and how it is created and/or manipulated through language. While I try to be an interesting and entertaining writer, I am intrigued by the idea of who is reading my work, and I want my audience to feel challenged by what they experience."
