Rendering Unconscious episode 295.

Ad Vat is a twenty-something-year-old social fruit fly that often likes to help build local book clubs, doll-make with consenting parties, photograph his partner-doll Nuvo, and continuously write and read. He always loves his friends and festivities, yet he enjoys finding himself in those chthonic places while he’s alone. He’s worked many odd jobs for odd people, and when he’s finished with another quaint day of work he likes to listen to the trains go by on his deck looking over Portland, OR. U.S.A. He’s here to discuss his novel Spiral of Objects (2023). You can also check out his book BLACK PANTAGES (2024). Follow him at @ad_vat
