About the author


I was born in a subbasement of the Library of Babel, the son of Arcturus and Sirius B. I grew up among dusty books and metaphysical ideas, thus accounting for the condition of my mind, lungs and eyes. I studied time travel, mnemonics, taxonomy, medieval arabic astronomy, neo-platonism, hermetics, galactic linguistics, dakiniscript and the works of Borges, Montaigne, Pascal, Giordano Bruno, Erasmus, Christian Rosencreutz, Padmasambhava, Ramon Llull, Pico and Ficino and R. Steiner. I spent a year on academic scholarship at the Hall of Akashic Records studying etheric taxonomics and a summer at the Forum des Images studying the visual work of Guillaume d'Egypte. Currently, I work with Oromasis, Prince of Flames and his retinue of Salamanders cleaning up the world wide web with fire.
