argentine

just finished Collected Fictions by Jorge Luis Borges, translated by Andrew Hurley :: was amazed by it, especially the five stories that make up "The Garden of Forking Paths", although "Funes, The Memories" seems to be the more popular introduction to Borges :: ("The Gospel of Mark" was also exceptionally creepy.)

"...like every writer, he measured other men's virtues by what they had accomplished, yet asked that other men measure him by what he planned someday to do." - from "The Secret Miracle"

frailty

I've finally gotten around to creating a friendlier version of the
frailty project which has been ongoing for the past two years. It is one of my favorite projects to date.

Frailty is a collaboratively written and illustrated series of six poems. The text was written line by line (Gorey style) in the The Fiction Project by different members of the forum. The illustrations were created using The Scribbler and have been submitted by hundreds of different visitors to the site since the poems were written in 2004.

The project is ongoing and i would love to get an illustration from you. 12 lines remain un-illustrated but i also welcome your interpretation of any previously illustrated line. go to frailty
