Story is my religion. Twain is my god, and Jesus, I guess, would be Hemingway. There are tons of prophets and wise men,literary saints like Steinbeck or Charles Willeford, Jim Thompson (the crazy saint!) and David Goodis, Fitzgerald and Richard Stark.
These guys give me all the comfort and succor I need in an otherwise dark and unpleasant world...


  1. My gods are Shakespeare, Lu Xun, and Kurt Vonnegut. I guess that means I believe in the Trinity. But your post is very cool too.

  2. Those are all worthy gods, Michael... though I'm not too familiar with the Gospel of Lu Xun, I must admit...
