Michel Clasquin-Johnson is a Professor of Religious Studies at the University of South Africa and was, until recently, the entire Buddhological establishment on the continent of Africa. He lives in Pretoria, South Africa with his wife, son and two motorcycles.
Michel likes to think that he practices Buddhism (in his own way) as well as writing about it. The entire Buddhist world disagrees, but is too polite to say so.
In his spare time, he writes what can loosely be called science fiction. Not a lot of science involved, and a fine disregard for the rules of fiction.
He also writes application software, but only for utterly obscure and/or obsolete operating systems that are never going to lead to a payday. Let's hope he hangs on to his day job.

It's a collection of flash-fictions, essays, histories, or just MCJ's rantings. 31 short 'stories', each represents different days of January, @ 366 words each. Well, MCJ admit himself it may not exactly 366; better this way IMHO, rather than sacrificing grammatical errors or stories' integrity for the magic number. The stories itself are well written, proof-readed, easy to understand, etc-etc.
From Gregorian callendar's, to an alien's view toward our history, to battery-powered wristwatch, then back to aliens, and so-on. Unfortunately, that's all. Utopian-distopian, new vs obsolete faiths, or aliens. And always on the same side....
