Profile Information

Since the early years of my life, I have been enthralled with text and linguistic complexity and structure; the realm of writing, language, and communicative structure is nigh-unfathomably exciting.  In the world of literature, most works of fiction are, as I find, rather mundane, formulaic, and unimpressive in execution - the inimitable writings of H.P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, and Robert W. Chambers evoke such a horror, an unsettling feeling, yet, simultaneously, grasp the attention of the reader of journalistic integrity; such imagination and expression in grandiloquent detail has long been buried by the banalities of coitus and teenage hooliganry.  There is no authenticity in such plastic formulae.  

As for non-fiction, the philosophical and scientific writings of Epicurus, Lucretius, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Leon Trotsky, are unequivocally vindicated works in theory and practise.  For this, I am a dialectical materialist, thus many of my works will exhibit an emphasis on material reality, whether fiction or not.  

My writings express the obvious influence of the aforementioned authors, stylistically and ideologically, the latter specifically referring to Marx, Engels, and Trotsky, but this takes not away from what I create and write.  I aim not to embody some of these men, but simply acknowledge I am but an extension of them.
