A Challenge In Itself

Tamel Wino Author Interview

Ékleipsis: the Abyss is the second collection of short stories that explore humanity’s degeneration. What were some ideas you wanted to explore in this collection that is different from the first collection of stories?

I wanted my stories to be less predictable than those in the previous book. But in the attempt to be relatable and believable (human dark tendencies & desires), it proved to be a challenge in itself.

What has been the most surprising reader reaction you’ve received so far?

One of my readers is an aspiring writer of the same genre and they told me that my stories are not only entertaining but also inspiring. That meant a lot.

What is your creative process like in bringing these stories to life?

Most of my stories are character-driven. So, usually early in the developmental stages of a story, I create my protagonist(s). With the aid of research, interviews and other methods, I would try my best to put myself in their shoes, predicting how they would react, talk, think, etc.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I’m currently working on my third collection in the same vein as the first two. Projected publication date is late 2022.

The seed of evil has been planted …

What will happen when its roots take hold?

Ékleipsis: The Abyss is the second short story collection by the award-winning author.

Tales of depravation and insanity are woven together with unrelenting style and depth, scrutinizing human nature’s degeneration when compromised by tragic, vicious circumstances.

These complex, wretched individuals and the irremediable conditions they are desperate to claw out of—or into—invoke the unfathomable question: What devastation are we truly capable of when left with no way out but down . . . into the obscurity of the abyss?
