Using his fingers as toes, S.D. Foster roams the hills of Dorset, England, for no apparent reason. Using his toes as fingers, he types. His first book, "A Hollow Cube is a Lonely Space" (Eraserhead Press, 2011), is a collection of fantastic fables featuring cartoonish characters and anthropomorphized fruit. Influences include absurdist prose-poet Russell Edson; the exceedingly silly Soviet, Daniil Kharms; Lewis Carroll; pulp horror; existentialism; Edward Gorey; b-movie auteurs Larry Cohen, John Waters and Frank Henenlotter; and, of course, Aesop.
