I love the idea of #foundfiction – the strangeness of finding a physical thing and then it potentially drawing you into the ether of the internet to connect with others. It's modern but old-school. I got in touch in 2014 and offered to be a writer and a distributor. When the first set of pamphlets arrived I could see that they were a labour of love in and of themselves. Since then I’ve left them across London as well as in Washington DC, Tokyo, Bangkok and Hay-on-Wye, to name a few. #foundfiction is having fun with literature, and it's great.
