Anthony Horvath Goes to Heaven







Introductory notice placed in the 2011 edition:


The following three stories were composed over a two year period with nary a thought that they might some day form a collection. They were often prompted by something that the author read or perhaps a conversation he was involved in and the story was fired off in an hour or so of imaginative fury, distributed casually amongst friends, and left to sit. The digital book revolution now makes it possible to cheaply and easily make them available; their publication became inevitable. Enjoy!




2012 Introduction:


Since these stories were made available a great deal has happened in response to them. Notably, a certain PZ Myers got a hold of them, and from there it just got weird. This edition has been updated to reflect some of these developments, but there is no point in responding to some of the issues that were raised.

For example, some critics found the stories unpolished. Really? Perhaps "fired off in an hour or so of imaginative fury, distributed casually amongst friends, and left to sit" would have led you to suspect as much. Maybe?

Or another example. Myers himself says, "it's rather appalling that the guy took two years to write such fluff."
