Abstract: Kill Marguerite: Stories is a collection of short fiction and cross-genre writing. These pieces contend with the problem of blocked agency by exploring gender, sexuality, identity, power, and the body through a variety of formal and affective concerns. De-emphasizing conventions of character and plot, these stories instead concentrate on the production of affective intensity through fields of dispersed subjectivity and desire. Strategies employed include formal hybridity, polyvocality, and appropriation. Genres invoked include video games, stand-up comedy, body horror, teen magazines, and YA book series. Modes deployed include New Narrative, surrealism, kitsch, and camp.
