I wrote a short story called "It's Not About the Dog" for my friend Michelle Meyering's literary journal The Rattling Wall. As indicated, the story is not about a dog. But there is a dog in it. So it's not totally dog-less, or anything like that.


As per below, I'll be reading from the story at the Hollywood Standard, in LA, on February 4th, along with a bunch of other writers who are awesome. Co...

“Be alone—that is the secret of invention: be alone, that is when ideas are born. —NIKOLA TESLA, FROM HIS DIARY A”
Graham Moore, The Last Days of Night

“Look, I get it. I’m a white, heterosexual man. It’s really easy for me to say, ‘Oh, wow, wasn’t the nineteenth century terrific?’ But try this. Imagine the scene: It’s pouring rain against a thick window. Outside, on Baker Street, the light from the gas lamps is so weak that it barely reaches the pavement. A fog swirls in the air, and the gas gives it a pale yellow glow. Mystery brews in every darkened corner, in every darkened room. And a man steps out into that dim, foggy world, and he can tell you the story of your life by the cut of your shirtsleeves. He can shine a light into the dimness, with only his intellect and his tobacco smoke to help him. Now. Tell me that’s not awfully romantic?”
Graham Moore, The Sherlockian

“In the darkest corner of a darkened room, all Sherlock Homes stories begin. In the pregnant dim of gaslight and smoke, Holmes would sit, digesting the day's papers, puffing on his long pipe, injecting himself with cocaine. He would pop smoke rings into the gloom, waiting for something, anything, to pierce into the belly of his study and release the promise of adventure; of clues to interpret; of, at last he would plead, a puzzle he could not solve. And after each story he would return here, into the dark room, and die day by day of boredom. The darkness of his study was his cage, but also the womb of his genius.”
Graham Moore, The Sherlockian
