About the Author:
A French author and conceptor born in Paris in 1967, Stephane MOT thrives on strategy and innovation (ESSEC alumni, serial startup survivor) without ever disowning fiction, satire, and nonsense.
Author of ‘dragedies' (a collection of bittersweet going on pungent fictions), and of ‘La Ligue des Oublies' (The League of The Forgotten, a tribute to soccer legends who never existed), Stephane founded among other blogs SeoulVillage.com. Seoul villages is his first collection of fictions in English.
Stephane and Seoul have been haunting each other since 1991.
NB 'Seoul Villages', also available in French and Korean, is part of Stephane's 'Seoul Urban Legends' (now adapted into film).
