Parts of some of these stories are true or partly true or based on something
somebody else told me was true, so pretty much, these stories are fiction.
And I'm glad about that. I like to write fiction for two reasons:
1. I can do most of the research in my head, which is fun, and
2. Fiction is often more truthful than non-fiction. It can afford to be
as it takes little responsibility as the disclaimer in the front of the
book tells you. That's freedom of speech at work which we all need
and love. Even if it's a raving, ranting piece of borderline insane rage
or a declaration of freedom and love, that freedom is a good thing.
Especially for writers. And all other people.
