Bear Savo writes short fiction. He is a disciple of literary minimalism.

He labored much of his life as an estate auctioneer — selling dead people’s stuff to people who are going to die — and the human compulsion to hoard the unnecessary became anathema to him.

Bear lives near Scranton, PA with his wife and his son. Their household includes two loving dogs, a pair of psychotic cats, and an agoraphobic guinea pig.
