K Ungeheuer

K. Ungeheuer was born in 1908 in Berlin and wrote short pieces of surreal, strange and sometimes even horrifying short fiction. Educated early in life by the Golden 20's Berlin art scene, Ungeheuer was influenced heavily by the Dada movement. Experimenting with terse prose, Ungeheuer published his first work in Kurt Schwitter's prestigious journal "Merz" in 1926. He and his wife emigrated to Portugal shortly before World War II and eventually settled in New York City. A professor of mathematics, he developed his Numerolingual theory, exploring the relationship between math and language and published two books of his short, experimental fiction before dying in an accident in 1988.

Unfortunately not many know of this man's work. This website hopes to remedy that.
