I Bless the World

Once upon a time, when I was small, I wanted to be a writer. As a result I made myself books, out of construction paper and sellotape, and wrote stories in them.

This volume, I Bless the World, doesn't seem to have a title page. It is made entirely of A4 yellow paper — paper my parents' got from a local photocopy shop — folded into halves and taped together. It contains the following stories, poems, and the like.

  1. I Bless the World — a poem
  2. Bushnell & Iscaria — two planetary maps
  3. Patchwork
  4. An Extract from the Ponderings of Thalem
  5. Sir Montegue — a poem
  6. An Interesting Idea
  7. The Game of Tog — a board game
  8. Lament for Social Conscience — a poem
  9. Appeal
