If we were to visit a past moment, I think we'd find it a very different place than we assume or even think we remember - virtually an alternate world in itself, thanks to the convenient little lies that have become established as 'common knowledge.'

Background Information

Born in Fort Worth TX, the son of a packinghouse employee and a public schoolteacher. Into the outré from an early age, he was educated at and around UT Austin at the height of the Sixties. He's operated nightclubs and worked in labor and political activism. Has lived in San Antonio for twenty years.

Additional Information

Editor Paul Witcover, to whom The Fan-Shaped Destiny owes much, says: "Of the fifteen books edited by me that were published between March and November of 2001, this first novel was the one closest to my heart. It's a wildly ambitious fictional working out of the many-worlds theory featuring a large cast of characters both real and imaginary, all revolving around the now-almost-forgotten Lost Generation writer, mystic, libertine, drunk, and eventual suicide, William Seabrook. This is a novel that deserves much wider recognition ... damn audacious and in-your-face..." (Witcover is author of the masterful Waking Beauty and recently released contemporary fantasy novel Tumbling After. Click link below.)
