Chris Connolly

Having drifted around Dublin for 24 years looking for someone to spoon, Connolly finally realised the depravity of all animate beings and settled on a multicoloured pinata named Dinky. When Dinky (pictured) was stabbed to death, Connolly (pictured also) retreated to his fortified loft in Dublin's city centre where he now lives as a recluse, communicating with the outside world only through his written words of gibberish.

His first collection of short stories, 'Every Day I Atrophy' (the SideCartel Books) is available now.

If you need to know more about Chris Connolly, he has an excellent and excellently informative website here chrisconnollywriter.com

Broad, Deep and High, the Super Sonic Mash-Up of Ultraviolet Eye

What Do You Get When You Cross a Metal Dinosaur and an Indie Rock Pussy?
