Asheville writer Jerry Stubblefield is perhaps best known as a playwright. For almost two decades he lived and worked in New York and had plays produced off-Broadway, off-off-Broadway and in regional theatres.
Now Jerry has a new novel out from Black Heron Press, and, judging from early reviews, he's proving to be every bit as talented a novelist as a playwright. The novel is called Homunculus, and it's a science fiction/psychological novel about a writer who literally produces his own double -- the title character, who represents and acts on the writer's deepest desires, but good and not-so-good. On one level an sf/horror tale, on another it's a meditation on those parts of our psyche we'd rather not acknowledge, and what happens when they finally insist we take ownership of them.
Accent on Books will hold a reception honoring Jerry Stubblefield this coming Friday, beginning at 6:00 PM. Join us as Jerry reads from and signs copies of his book. You and your own homunculus should thoroughly enjoy it.
