I'm not sure precisely when I became a nominalist. Certainly not before I was three or four days old. Nor am I sure precisely when I was cured of nomialism. Was it in college? During my travels? Earlier today?


Unquestionably, other writers have influenced my own writing. However, who they are and what their influence has been is beyond me. They have left their marks somewhere below the level of conscious awareness. 

Upcoming Works

I'm currently working a sequel to The Shake, I've just completed a rather longish (9,000 words) short story entitled The Coinage of the Brain, and I'm working on another novel, as yet untitled, about a man who is abducted by aliens.
