ABOUT & CONTENTS

This site contains stuff that is half-finished, partly finished, nearly finished, and more or less finished. Occasionally, and only with concern for the private lives of others, the facts — mainly personal names and locations — have been modified. To reach me at the Swan Island lighthouse, please don’t just show up unannounced, as the island abounds in venomous snakes of the Elapidae family. Instead use the following email address:
