Areas of writing: cyclical redundancy, lassitude-restricted thin-atmosphere dross remining.

Genres: metafiction; sloth.

Style: possibly something between Daniel Spoerri’s Annotated Topography of Chance and Bishop Berkeley, with a sprinkling of Nicholson Baker. In turns discursive and abrupt, I try to set readers and writer at play on a level playing-field.
