My stories are a combination of truth and fiction. I can't help it. Even when I start out with what should be a simple recounting of events, I often end up with facts mixed with digressions and flourishes that tickle my fancy. Stories of this type are Perché Bergamo?Thoughts on Taking a Sabbatical, and Amsler Grids.

Some stories are rooted in distant memories, which are, from the start, hazy recollections, perfect territory for reinterpretation and flights of fancy. Stories of this ilk are: Broca's Earlobe and A Happy Sound in the Grotto.

Facts with fiction or fiction with facts: I don't care because my purpose is to get the stories out of my head. Many of them have spent too long time rattling around in there. Writing them down and putting them out into the world clears new space for fresh ideas, especially new truths and new fantasies.
