Are you new to this site? Confused about what’s going on here? Look, we’ll level with you: so are we. What began as a small creative writing project way back in 2002 is now a sprawling, difficult-to-catalogue mishmash of 200-plus flash fictions, experimental novel excerpts, and creative nonfiction. And there’s much more coming down the pipeline, so prepare yourself.
If you’ve never visited us before, you’d be well-served to browse the About the characters tab and read some of the canonical stories that establish the ill-defined Moustache-verse. In that tab, we’ve attempted to give a framework to the larger story being told in some of these pieces–the so-called Brian Powell Story–but this is just the beginning. In the coming weeks, we’re going to revamp that page as well as this one to give you convenient access to our entire archive. On top of that, we’re now featuring a revolving group of stories–old ones, new ones, and “director’s cuts” of ones that were first published elsewhere–just below the site’s header.
Furthermore, we do have one specific piece of advice for you: Click on all of the links in our posts. They won’t take you to AVS paysites, they’re not going to fill your computer’s 4 GB hard drive with spyware/malware/viruses/naughty pics for the Dateline people to surprise you with, and none of them lead to RickRolls or Lemon Parties. They are, however, an integral part of the stories. Some clarify points made therein, others serve as “sight gags,” and all of them were hand-picked with considerable care.
Once you’ve got a feel for what this site has to offer, consider sending us some of your own work. We make no promises, but who among us can? It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, you’ve got to take it one day a time, the early bird gets the worm, a watched pot never boils, &c.
