I have been a writer from an early age. I completed my first proper short story when I was 14. It was called 'The Journey of Mountain Hawk' and I still remember what it was about, even though it no longer exists. None of my early work exists. My earliest surviving short story dates from 1989, and since that time I have embarked on an ambitious project of writing a story cycle consisting of exactly 1000 linked tales. Recently I decided to give this cycle an overall name -- PANDORA'S BLUFF.
In the weeks that follow I will discuss this story cycle in greater detail. I will also talk about three key elements that are essential to an understanding of what I am attempting to do in the world of literature. These key elements are:
TAKING ABSURDISM SERIOUSLY
THE MOLECULAR THEORY OF FICTION
THE ROMANTI-CYNICAL MANIFESTO
