A confederacy of dunces

…is the quintessence of the perfect, American novel. It almost qualifies the American literary tradition as Art.

Many helped, but DFW consolidated the artistic mass into one artform.

Danse Macabre by Stephen King is my personal favorite American take on literature.

The horror enlivened by the terror genre, in the American writing tradition, elevates itself to the category of Art. King speaks to Young Americans. DFW speaks to ghosts.

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
