Trout are Selfish: short fictions and transitions is a collection of short stories and musings about kinship, specifically and most prevalently through the motivations of men. Notions of sexuality, queerness, innocence, and violence amidst a corporate climate for many title characters serves as a backdrop for the ever-present gothic language. The hybridization of gothic, science-fiction, and corporate language blurs the problematic connotations of genre, while also using each respective cannon to assign perspective to the title characters and cultural relation to the stories themselves. As the stories unfold, characters may cross and meet with one another; generations will pass through the early transitions, taking the form of fables, or prose-poems. Many stories evoke the supernatural, magical, or scientific as a means of aestheticizing narrative, and, in many cases, provoking the idea that magical elements can be assumed and unsurprising. The magic is a form of queerness, and the queerness of many of the characters, though sometimes relevant to the encapsulating stories, is to be assumed, unsurprising, and as indistinguishable as the magic itself.
