“Objects for Objects” – Kerry Lipp
Retired porn star, Mandy Stroyer, uses her allure and online prowess to lure countless fans to buy her gifts while she offers nothing in return. A run in with Victoria Bigglesworth-Hayes leads Mandy to an evaluation and exploration of greed, gratitude, and hope.
ABOUT THE WRITER:
Kerry G. S. Lipp lives in Louisville, Kentucky. He hates the sun and loves making fun of dead people. His parents started reading his stories and they’ve consequently booted him from their will. Kerry’s work appears in several anthologies including DOA2 from Blood Bound Books. His work has been featured multiple times on The Wicked Library podcast. He is currently editing his first novel, writing his second, and shopping a bizarro novella. Kerry rarely (but still) blogs at Horror Tree and will launch his own website sometime before he dies.
Say hi on Twitter @kerrylipp or come find him on Facebook. And he wants you to remember to always cover the camera on your laptop. You never know who’s watching you.
ABout the Artist
Score and FX by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.
Nico Vettese is a talented composer who was born in Yorkshire, Northern England, and currently resides in Lancaster. Self taught, and preferring to be called a composer rather than a musician, he enjoys the ability to work on a piece until it feels perfect. Trained in guitar and piano, Nico now immerses himself in music theory.
Influences for his work come from everywhere, but his biggest influence is Nobuo
Uematsu who was the composer for the ‘Final Fantasy’ video games.
His music production entity, We Talk of Dreams, takes it’s name from a line spoken by Mercutio in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Some of his credits, in addition to his work on The Wicked Library and The Lift, include a series on Soundcloud called “Reimagined”. He is also hard at work on the Score for Carrot Field, an epic fantasy by Vincent Asaro, as well as two video games, ‘Distant Suns’ – A co-op space adventure and ‘Nekodama Catastrophe’ – a hack ’n’ slash arcade game.
“I focus on writing soundscapes that will make the media immersive rather than having music that is distinctive. I intend to make all sounds illustrate the worlds that the media is set within.” ~ Nico Vettese
