More or less literally juvenilia, in this case. In the various excavations of my basement, some very old manuscripts have turned up. I don't have time to re-key them, but I have scanned a few things to .pdf for your delectation. Some of the scans are a little hard to read, but this is a problem with the source material more than with the scanning process.

Untitled high school poetry — Overwrought and anguished with the desperate importance that informed the world for me in my teen years. Probably 1980.

Untitled SF short — Something from about 1980 that is inexplicable to me now.

Untitled SF short — Something from about 1981 that is also inexplicable to me now.

"Hempkill" — This is the first real short I have any recollection of writing. It was a class assignment my senior year in high school, dated June, 1982.

Canyon Dam Narrative — Apparently I wanted to be a blogger even in 1983. A narrative of my near-drowning in a boating accident.

Enjoy!

Well, as I was reading the 1980 short, I started thinking, "Jay, I think you were reading too much Dune." Then I thought, "nah, it's just because he used the word 'spice' that I'm thinking that." But then I got to the quote at the end. Dude, you were reading too much Dune.

There is something quite beautiful about these as texts in themselves - I love the idiosyncratic type! But would you like me to re-key them for you? It wouldn't take too long!

I would be delighted if you wanted to re-key them. Thank you.
