Transgressive Experimental Atheist Satire
Taking his impetus from the imaginings of the Marquis De Sade, Blake Ryder re-envisions the short story as a transgressive odyssey of uninhibited carnal fantasy - the freeing of the imagination in the awareness of the human condition that attends the loss of religious faith. From the depths of despair in the realization of the absence of God to the ironic guffaw at the reprehensible and sexually perverse nature of the human condition, Ryder deploys literary irony and pornography in equal measure in a series of short stories exploring the outre realms of the imagination: erotica, horror, surrealism, thriller and stream of consciousness coalesce in the first volume of The Comedies of Despair. Short fiction for atheists, secular humanists, rationalists and moral relativists.

Sobre o autor
From the bowels of secular humanism's abyss, Blake Ryder emerged alive but not unscathed. Well-educated, this nihilistic-atheistic author developed a cult reputation with vivid, sexually explicit fiction exploring the humour of moral desolation and despair. His e-books take him from spoken word performance in seedy nightclubs to the wonders of digital publishing. Though Ryder avoids interviews and relishes anonymity, he describes himself as a "pornographized post-modernist".
