This morning, I discovered the writer Kirk Nesset. I haven’t read his work yet (although I really like much of what he says about process, sound and very short fiction in this interview from Pank), but holy shit, isn’t it uncanny how closely he resembles Doug Savant as gay social worker Matt Fielding on Melrose Place? I bet he gets that a lot. Or did do, back in the day.
That’s Savant on the right and Nesset on the left.
