This will mean a lot if you know Ron Gilbert and Secret of Monkey Island. If not, rest easy, there will be fighting and swimwear.
Mr. Gilbert recently began not writing a novel in short bursts on his blog. It’s some funny stuff – going nowhere – but still getting there. Pretty cool idea.
Anyway, I decided to steal his idea as I doubtlessly purged a lot of my book ideas from puzzles I failed to solve in his games. The references are oblique at best. It’s not funny. I’m not clever on a “game designer” level.
This narrative is a karmic launch vehicle for my book. It will be shot into the sea someday. All art is the property of its owner and I just wanted to put something cool to make my words less unbearable.
