THE DETAILS ARE IN THE SUITCASE

11 October 2006

By this time you will have realised what this is all about. The previous episode told you the name of the game. Moby Dick, or The Whale. Now this press release will hand you the details. The curtain is finally lifted, but the minutiae must still wait for their uncovering. The current episode gives you a taste of the madness. More will come, and soon at that.

This press release has been sent to various outlets. Hopefully they'll do something with it; draw even more people here. People that may react aghast as some already have. What madness is this? An entire year of August dedicated to some strange remake of a literary classic? If the arrogance hasn't gotten the best of you, then surely folly has! But I assure you, none of the above. This is, above all, another experiment. Another way to keep things interesting for you and me. Another sleight of hand through which I may invest August with new excitement. Is that megalomania? Surely I'm not thinking that I could even touch on the greatness of Moby Dick. Rather, I let the book raise the stakes of the comic.

But analyses aside, this is more than anything something that I wanted to do. Another idea that I had been walking around with for some time. As you can imagine, a year of scripted events takes more preparation than a regular August term. It's a daunting project to undertake, especially in my final year of college. But who am I to shy away from this?

So, now you know more. Would you like to know even more? Just keep reading. Juuust keep reading.
