Matt. 23. Many like to hold the belief that a work of fiction is marginalized by its fantasy; reality and therefore relevance immediately lost when the fantastic is introduced. How tragically bland the world of the small minded must be. Fiction effectively washes away the grime of reality that embeds itself into the fibers of our day to day lives, and enables us to see and feel the full spectrum of human emotion that is all too often lost in the malaise and apathy born from routine. Fiction is our most precious intellectual resource as a species; a galvanizing force that propels us to learn and explore every subtlety, every nuance this world has to offer. Welcome to my blog.
