about

Your ticket on this Snark hunting expedition through the snarkish imagination of Byron Sewell is good for several stops on planet Earth and far-off Jupiter! Our first stop is at Olosega, a volcanic doublet in the Manu'a group of the Samoan Islands, over a century ago, to learn about the true story of Robert Louis Stevenson's tragic encounter with a Boojum. From there our next two stops are in today's West Virginia to attend a meeting of the West Virginia Snark Hunting Society, followed by a deadbeat dad's encounter with someone intent on painting his trailer and pick-up truck with neon-pink polka dots. From there you will travel to Cologne where someone is visiting a psychiatrist seeking help for his ability to see live snarks that everyone attempts to convince him are just illusions. Our last stop is a close encounter on one of Jupiter's moons, eventually colonized after the sudden onset of an ice age across Earth's northern hemisphere, where the words of an ancient tale have the power to rip open a seam in the fabric of space-time and reveal a terrifying world where Boojums abound. Be sure to bring along a fork and some soap.
