THE AVANT GARDE AND ME:-
Being instrumental in helping form The Zeroist Group at Lancaster University in 1967.
‘The Visitor’ in 1973.
Having arguably 1500 published stories from 1986 to 1999, and the obsessive nature of accomplishing even the believable potential of being able to claim that achievement – let alone actually achieving it.
The Aesthetic aims and nature of ‘Nemonymous’ in 2001.
The world’s first blank story published in Nemonymous #2 in 2002.
The ‘Synchronised Shards of Random Truth & Fiction’ in WEIRDMONGER (Prime Books 2003)
The massive ‘Weirdmonger Wheel’ (2004) as the textual base for much of my work.
The blank cover of Nemonymous #4 in 2004. The non-existent issue of Nemonymous #6 in 2006.
Zencore, Cone Zero, CERN Zoo.
My gestalt Real-time Reviews of books (2008 onward).
The HA of HA.
My years of multifarious neologisms.
