“The Organs of St. Petersburg” is an homage to Nikolai Gogol’s famous 1836 short story “The Nose,” in which the titular organ of Major Kovlayov mysteriously disappears from his face and goes on a surreal journey around St. Petersburg, developing a persona of its own (much to the dismay of Major Kovlayov). My story was written on a phone on a Sunday before anyone in the house woke up, which inspired the early morning setting. Writing short fiction is my hobby. My day job is coordinating educational programs at The Arboretum at Penn State.”
