About Stephane MOT, the author:

French author (with a weakness for fiction, satire, and nonsense) and conceptor (with an unhealthy interest in strategy and innovation).
  • About "dragedies - la mer amarree":If 'dragees' are sweets you offer to somehow exorcise festive events, these 17 dragedies nonsensically announce death. Some bits can taste sweet, sour, sad, or funny, and you eventually choke on them (in a final lexicon, I define humor as "the ability to accept death in general and one's weakness in particular, in order to make life in general more acceptable, and one's existence in particular more bearable to others").

  • About "Impressions papier hanji":Published by Atelier des Cahiers, this anthology proposes short stories about Korea by four female Korean authors and six male French authors (Alain ROBBE-GRILLET, KIM Ae-ran, Francois LAUT, KIM Da-eun, Antoine COPPOLA, CHOI Myeong-jeong, Eric SZCZUREK, EUN Hee-kyung, Michel LOUYOT, and Stephane MOT).

  • About "La Ligue des Oublies - l'autre histoire du football":'The League of the Forgotten - The Other History of Football' tells the stories of unlucky soccer players, personalities or events that didn't even have the chance to exist.

  • About the rest:
    . graduated from ESSEC, survived 3 start-ups, boosted 1 go-far, defines writing as his "most embarrassing bodily function".
    . his fictions have appeared in various anthologies in French (Breves, Impressions Papier Hanji), and in English (Every Other Sunday, Out of Place).
    . his 'junk writing' overflows a rudimentary waste sorting system consisting in one blog for each 'vertical': Korea (SeoulVillage.com), Weapons of Mass Disinformation (blogules.com), innovation (mot-bile), soccer (footlog).... his 'non-junk non-fiction' is occasionally published by serious media about serious issues (in France, Korea, the US).
