Unlikely Stories Presents

B. Z. NIDITCH dances to that crazy Casbah sound

To the Unlikely Stories home pageThe stories of B. Z. Nidich that we present here are largely told from a strange, skewered, first person perspective. The stories focus on cultural misunderstandings and bizarre environments. Each of them presents a main character, a slice of time, and challenges you to make sense of the character's experiences. The resulting stories are fascinating and dynamic, leaving us with more questions than answers.

B. Z. Niditch is a poet, playwright and teacher. His work appears in Anthology of Magazine Verse & Yearbook of American Poetry, Columbia: A Magazine of Poetry and Art, The Literary Review, Denver Quarterly, International Poetry Review, Hawaii Review, Prism International, France's Le Guepard, and the Czech Republic's Jejune. He will soon be featured in The New Novel Review. A new collection of his poetry, Crucifixion Times, has just been published by University Editions. You can write to him at BZNiditch@webtv.net.
