David Horn


Actual Bio:
D. Horn, Artist, Poet and Savant, uses the medium of self-publishing to heuristically test the boundaries of the semiotically acceptable and marketable. Originally from Austria, Europe.

The work "Smash the Words 2013" consists of three distinctive short stories and a novelette (medium variable & entirely up to the recipient). It is a work in progress, and the final tally & interpretation can realistically only be made after there is no semblance of human culture left in the universe, so that's up to others then. In the meantime, send some credits or BTC or just kudos or love my way, every bit counts. FNORD, e.a.

Current comment on results: FNORD.

Out now: "Contract Expired", a not so short story.
A dystopian journey into a bleak universe, not so far away from our own as we might hope.
