I had to be out of town last week and the stresses of travel prevented my putting together a regular interview, so we have an experiment instead. I read aloud for you a public domain pulp story by Waldemar Kaempffert, “The Diminishing Draft” (first published in 1918). An unhappily-married, middle-aged biology professor takes on a pretty young woman as an assistant and gets way more than he bargained for. This remarkable story prefigures various A.S.F.R., transformation fantasy, shrinking woman, and femme peril fetishes all in a neat 8,000 words. So give it a listen, no?
Regular interviewing resumes with a new episode tomorrow.
