Adult content

This collection of original fiction includes explicit sexual content, swearing, and violence. It is intended for mature readers.

The Principle of Moments is a multi-braned, multi-brained, experiment in non-linear asynchronous storytelling.

About the books

There is a violinist, who finds domestic happiness just before his life explodes in his face. There’s a beautiful woman who doesn’t actually come from Australia. There’s an ex-military man, now a financial wizard, with terrifying nightmares.

There’s a young woman, who only wants security and safety for her young son, and finds herself living a fairytale. There is a prince under a malicious spell. There is a man with a mission.

There is a Caribbean smuggler who is forced onto the land in charge of the strangest crew she could possibly imagine. There’s a man who was a brutal killer, now changed beyond his imagining. There is a Puss in Boots.

There are people who are more, or less, than human. There’s a miserable old alcoholic, who may hold the keys to many mysteries in his addled brain.

These separate life-threads all barrel toward a collision on some acreage that isn’t quite water and isn’t quite land and isn’t quite tame and may be very beautiful, but can be very harsh.

There is chronology in these books– not quite linear. But it’s there. There’s a principle to these moments, each chapter made up of episodes, moments, ideas, images

Out of Time; Toys, Tools, and Pleasures

The Pillow Books

We write a lot of sex. Porn, schmoop, loving, harsh. Sometimes it has no place in the story line. Thus, pillowbooks.


little gems, exercises, conversations between characters, spiral-bound notebook stuff.

The Library (References and Oddments)

This is an archive the cool ideas we came across, the great links, the oddments we don’t want to forget. This is also the place to hear some of the music we’re talking about, or view referenced artwork.

About the writers

The Principle of Moments is a multi-braned, multi-brained, experiment-in-progress. The branes will be presented as separate “books” made up of “chapters” which are made up of “episodes.”

We created the first passages in this book in the year 2007, on livejournal. By the time we created this independent version, December 2009, our first Chapter was complete in three episodes, and the first two episodes of the second chapter had become  available. Episodes appeared more or less every three days– more or less. Sometime in 2012  life had gotten the best of the team, the branes fell into disarray, and progress slowed to a halt.

At this time, October of 2019, our long-quiescent project has begun to stir once more.  Back to the swamp we go!
