This is a work of pure fiction, deeply subjectivist. It is comprised of elements having been copyrighted earlier, some of which have been put out using my former pen name "Ianto Griffeth".... More > The Song of Ianto: Internal Exile of the Exposed Unknown, was actually the first-completed of the three novellas.

All these works undulate between a flat sort of existentialism and deeply inspired metanarrative. The "late-completed prequel", Prelude: Ianto's Montage of Dreams, was something I put together using very early writing juxtaposed with brand new material, some chronologically fitting, within the fictitious biography of the protagonist, some consciously "a-chronological", all this having to do with subjectivism, and metanarrative.< Less
