My name is Michael. I am a graduate student in English literature at a midwestern university, and I write horrible stories about horrible things happening to horrible people. For instance, “In the Place where the Tree Falleth” in the Arcane Sampler.
Also, of course, random stuff is available here under the short fiction tag.
Mostly I blog here.
I write a lot about certain interests of mine, such as Shakespeare and horror fiction, and since I am an all-around intellectual jerk-off, sometimes I write little pseudo-essays on books, plays, movies, or whatever.
Now you may be saying, “Nice to meet you, Michael. But why is your website called Correlated Contents? It sounds kind of stupid.”
Well, you are being pretty sassy and forthright even though we just met!
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
