Macedonio Fernandez invited his future readers to reinvent his novel, The Museum of the Novel of Eterna. I am taking him up on his offer. This is an open-source novel. It will span continents as well as generations. It is pretentious. It is impertinent. It takes a lot of nerve to rewrite the world's first good novel, but why not? I will tell it in my own way. I will take a stab at it. I will either have fun, or else I won't do it. I will write when I write and I won't when I don't. I will stop when I stop. I am starting it now.
This is dedicated to the ones I love.
