If I had waited for the "Atmospherics" to be completed before opening this site, too many more months would have passed. Let's call what we have now, up through 1983, "The Early Years," ending with Aka-Darbari-Java/Magic Realism. It's not a bad place to pause right now since it does actually represent the first stage of "Fourth World." And a jump forward to 2005 and Maarifa Street/Magic Realism 2 underlines—as the titles suggest—many connections to one another. For the yet-to-be-done Atmospherics entries, my plan is to use them as "in-boxes," dropping in random entries of text, pictures and sound along the way to store things that will eventually be woven into a narrative.
