Refossileer Spotlight, Day 2 — Uncle Don

Uncle Don makes his literary debut in The Refossiling with “Harmless,” a brief but harrowing tale of pizza delivery.

As if by reflex, she backed up a step from the occupant, a short, round troll of a man with greasy black hair clinging to an old Chicago Bears sweatshirt caked with food particles and stains. — “Harmless,” by Uncle Don

His man-of-few-words style continues in his interview, but, as we all know, the right words in the right order, done well, are much better than 3400+ words of TL;DR rambling gibberish.

* What inspired your piece in The Refossiling?

UD: I know a guy who has a thing for mummies.

* Who are your main creative influences, literary/artistic or otherwise?

UD: Mike Ditka

* Most useless advice you’ve ever seriously given or been given?

UD: The worst advice I’ve ever received was, “Hey, Don. You should move in with your nephew.”
