Welcome to The Shape of Days, the literary blog of Sam Hexagon, an aspiring science fiction writer. The title is an homage to Jeffery Harrell, an extraordinary writer who, unfortunately, seems to have disappeared from the internet.
You’ll see a number of my pieces have the “cliche” tag. These pieces are part of an ongoing project intended to reinvigorate dead, cliched language. I take a common cliche and write a short story about it, with the intention of making the images captured by that cliche fresh and new again.
I hope you enjoy!
