About the Book
This is a complicated journey through an indivual's path and some of the characters he meets along the way. Due to the regions and situations depicted, several languages are in use. English, quite natuarally, is the predominate one, but French, Russian, and Vietnamese are common, but German, Arabic, and Spanish will come into play. Most of the conversations are not translated, but can be easily done so using Google or Bing translation tools on your computer or cellphone.
Please not that this is an actively evolving work and additions occur whenever an opportunity presents itself. I anticipate it being completed this summer.
We might choose to call this fiction because I am the only surviving character. Upon completion, a myriad of disparate characters will be explained and utilized in an odd array of human interactions. There are no heroes; only varing levels of villians, victims and antagonists.
About the Author
Gary William Hallford will complete a B.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University in 2020, as well as a B.A. in Communications from Southern New Hampshire University. Primary focus has been on creative nonfiction, but an interest and talent as a playwright has emerged of late.
He has been published in assorted strange publications including Cry Justice Now! #35 (Banned by Missouri Department of Corrections as a "Security Threat"), and a Communist newspaper in Delhi, India (published in Hindi), with his essay appearing in English. Two chapters of an as yet not completed book called "Under Advisement" have been published in Sutro Review, Vol. 1, No. 1, as part of the San Francisco State University English department. A wide range of poems have been displayed at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City, and assorted other venues.
This "About You" portion will evolve as more publications and works become relevant.
