Wednesday was the third anniversary of the lowercase, a reading series at the Big Bear Cafe featuring the work of 826DC volunteers.
For some time now, Steve Souryal, the series founder and host, has been introducing his readers with fictional reader bios.
For the series’ third anniversary, DC writer William Bert arranged to have regular lowercase readers offer fake biographies of Steve. Here is William’s hilarious entry, which he read on Wednesday and has reprinted on his blog:
Steve Souryal is a group of 15 small islets and rocks in the central equatorial Atlantic Ocean. He lies in the Intertropical Convergence Zone, a region of severe storms. Steve exposes serpentinized abyssal mantle peridotite and kaersutite-bearing ultramafic mylonite on the top of the second-largest megamullion in the world (after the Parece Vela megamullion under Okinotoshima in the Pacific). He is the only location in the Atlantic Ocean where the abyssal mantle is exposed above sea level! In 1986, Steve was designated an environmentally protected area, and since 1998, the Danish Navy has maintained a permanently manned research facility in him. His main economic activity is tuna fishing, and we are incredibly lucky to have him with us tonight.
