Written by Alan Trotter, All This Rotting is an unstable story about an unstable mind, it is a story about deaths: one sudden and violent, one slow and incremental. It’s a story about loss — of a daughter, a sister, a child’s feet, of a man’s mind. Approach All This Rotting carefully, because like the story, it is very fragile.
Alan Trotter is a writer who also works in publishing. His short fiction has been published by McSweeney’s and the Electronic Literature Organisation and he recently completed a novel (called Muscle). He wrote All This Rotting while living in Brixton and now lives in Scotland.
