“Writers take tours in other people’s lives, and readers must be canny enough to understand that some writers like to play a mean little game of misdirection when it looks as if they’re inviting entry into the private back rooms of the writer himself.” — Harlan Ellison

Although some of these writings may have been inspired by true incidents, they are all works of fiction. They are wholly and completely products of the author’s imagination which is prone to exaggeration, distortion, flights of fancy, hallucinations, and bald-faced lies.

Additionally, while some of the characters may be based on people the author may have known, or compilations thereof, any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, including the author and any of his friends, family, acquaintances, ex-wives, or complete strangers is purely coincidental and subject to plausible deniability. Not a word is true! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

“Writers just make shit up.” — Bill Brashears
