Dialogues: a Collection of Creative Conversations

Dialogues: A Collection of Creative Conversations. A standoff with Bigfoot, an epidemic of serial killers, crossing a busy and blood-spattered road, men leaving their wives for artificial intelligence dating apps—these are just a few of the short stories written in a dialogical style you’ll find in this new collection by Randal Eldon Greene.
Dialogues is the product of a weekly writing challenge Randal Eldon Greene began in 2018. The introduction was posted on a Medium series (where he posts updates to the challenge) the first week of January. The first dialogue, Expire, was listed as complete on January 10th. Greene is publishing the title and a short description of a finished dialogue every week of 2018. Updates can be found on his blog or read at his Medium series.
The first of his dialogues published was Tarnished Time. The story appeared in The Creative Cafe on April 17th. This was followed shortly by Medea Naked on the Golden Fleece on April 30th in Lit Up. Greene began sending out completed dialogues to publishers right before reaching the halfway mark of his challenge. The first of these to appear was Jonathan Knudsen on July 5th in Train Literary Magazine. His stories Everything in It’s Right Place, A Lover’s Dwelling, and Viagra for a Pariah were all accepted for publication shortly after.
Greene intends to begin seeking a publisher for his collected dialogues sometime in 2019.
