A Few Notes on Sleep

June 24th, 2012 § 0 comments

“Sleep is the enterprise all society fights most fiercely, second only to love. Seeing a sleeper irritates a man, reminds him that he too is a sleeper, and that before twelve hours are up, he too will succumb.”

The latest issue of The Coffin Factory—the third for this august up-and-comer!—features Jean Ferry’s solemn yet witty consideration of sleep, “On the Frontiers of Plaster”. Readers may remember Ferry’s short story, “The Society Tiger,” from the same 1953 collection (The Engineer) featured last fall at Weird Fiction Review.
