“I wrote these stories in the 1990s, and I’ve written very little fiction since. The stories in this book are complete, 
absolute fiction and have nothing to do with reality. They certainly did not then, nor do they now, reflect my view 
of the world, nor do they depict anyone living or dead.

The drawings included here are meant as crude and elliptical references to a notion or two expressed in the 
first three stories, and they should not under any circumstances be viewed as art.”  – Michael Gira 2012
