This novel was conceived during a particularly difficult period in my life when I was fixating rather persistently on the Cotard delusion. I self-published it in 2009, and it is still available as an ebook on Smashwords.

The years that have elapsed since it was written have dated some aspects of the novel, and I wouldn’t put it back on the market in an active sense without giving it a solid overhaul first. However, I stand by the strength of its underlying structure, and I continue to believe the vicious language I used to write it effectively evokes the desired impressions of Hell.
