GRANFALLOON is named after a word invented by Kurt Vonnegut in Cat's Cradle. As Vonnegut explains, a GRANFALLOON is an example of a false karass. And according to Bokononism, the religion Vonnegut dreamed up for the book, "No karass is without a wampeter... just as no wheel is without a hub. Anything can be a wampeter: a tree, a rock, an animal, an idea, a book, a melody, the Holy Grail."
Well, our wampeter is the imagination! It's the hub around which GRANFALLOON revolves.
At GRANFALLOON, we celebrate authors and works that explore the imaginary. It goes without saying — the power of imagination is infinite. It flows from the writer into readers, stirring their imaginations in turn. This alchemy allows readers to transcend their own worlds and embrace new, previously unknown perspectives and possibilities.
