So...the public domain is a beautiful beautiful thing and I've recently decided to partake of it in order to enhance the future editions of Cellar Door beginning with Unraveling. If all goes as planned (and why wouldn't it? right?) we will be including the master Franz Kafka's "Jackals and Arabs" as well as an essay and some artwork inspired by his work. Said essay and art will be the output of an contest that will be running until the 20th of May.

Make sure and email us if you would like to participate in the contest (at the usual address: Cellar.Door.Book@gmail.com) and I'll send out the details. The gist for now? The essay will be 500-1000 words concerning a connection between Kafka's work and the theme of the book, unraveling. The art contest will be a choice of three drawings: 1. a portrait of the writer. 2. a drawing of a man transforming into a bug. 3. an illustration from the short story "Jackals and Arabs". To read the story online go here: http://www.kafka-online.info/jackals-and-arabs.html. It's a great read as are the rest of his works.

I hope to hear from you!
