Sci-fi, Surrealism Intertwine in Professor Joron's New Book

Thursday, September 21, 2017

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The Absolute Letter, released March 16, is a poetry composition containing similar science-fiction themes. The text is meant to explore the cadence, texture and density of language with a surrealist lens.

His unique work, influenced by his background, blends the artistry of poetry with the exploration of science fiction.

“I never really got away from the sort of feeling and atmosphere and tone of science fiction or speculative fiction,” Joron said. “It’s putting the imagination in command and letting the imagination run away with itself. Not being bound by earthly reality.”
