ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Erik Van Achter lives and works in Belgium (Europe) but studied in the U.S.A. First as a Fulbright Fellow at the University of Chicago; at a later stage as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Brown University (Providence- R.I.). Erik holds a PhD on the nature of the Short story and finally started writing short stories himself. From the scraps he kept while in the U.S. come unique stories the author has dubbed tales. All the fictions published find their origin in the spoken language, namely in the daily conversations Erik heard in a store, on the bus or in a coffee shop and then fantasied about.
