I want to tell ancient stories in a unique way.

In this endeavor,  I'm influenced by a very odd

group of characters, primarily Jorge Borges,

Joseph Campbell, Lao Tzu, and Raymond Chandler.


For Borges, mystery stories are the highest

achievement of literature because "there is

nothing in the world that is not mysterious."


Campbell makes it very clear that ancient

stories are stillalive, that "the current iteration

of Oedipus is standing on the cornerof 43rd

street, waiting for the light to change."


From Lao Tzu I try to understand that the

truth said in words isn't the truth;words

can only point or suggest or imply.


And for practical matters: Raymond Chandler's

instruction, "If in doubt, have two guys come

through the door with guns."
