I wrote this short piece of fiction in the year 2000, entitled, “The Big Meaning and Meaningless Books”. It was written by pen in a notebook, a few pages at a time at night, until finally I typed it up in LaTeX and then HTML. I shared the story with a few friends and I used to have it published on truman.net in the early 2000s. I finally took some time to edit the story, clean a few things up, I found a few spelling mistakes, and some errors in grammar I decided to keep; just to preserve the original. It’s like looking back at an old style that is no longer me, but it was interesting.
