Did you eat your 'dragedies'? 

Worms in the city, books in the sky, trouble in the company...  17 dragédies stretching over three decades and three continents. Bonus: a few definitions, a few Seoul crumbs that somehow fell into my lap or lens.

Welcome to my 'junk writing' playground. Looking for Dr Jekyll ? The other Stephane MOT (ESSEC, startup veteran & advisor, member of the Seoul Global Center Business Advisory Committee...) is on LinkedIn.

Seoul is not only my main character for fiction: meet this shapeshifting and elusive city in my blog (places, things, beings, cityscapes...), or in the essay "Inhuman, all too human Seoul".

Mentions, interviews, articles, op eds: Los Angeles Times, International Herald Tribune, Le Figaro, Rue89, iNews, Asia Times, Korea Times, Korea Herald, Korea JoongAng Daily...

I usually navigate between serious fiction and inept satire, because such is life.  This excuse for a site was created on 20030303 and recently moved from Yahoo! to Google. Not all pages have been transferred yet. Eventually, you shall find some stuff about the things, places, and beings I like, as well as some literature about my non-literature.
