“Self knowledge is always bad news.”
―from “Giles Goat Boy” By John Barth

“Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.”
Patrick Süskind, “PERFUME: The Story of a Murderer,” now available for the first time as an eBook

An acclaimed bestseller and international sensation, Patrick Suskind’s classic novel provokes a terrifying examination of what happens when one man’s indulgence in his greatest passion—his sense of smell—leads to murder.In the slums of eighteenth-century France, the infant Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born with one sublime gift-an absolute sense of smell. As a boy, he lives to decipher the odors of Paris, and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs. But Grenouille’s genius is such that he is not satisfied to stop there, and he becomes obsessed with capturing the smells of objects such as brass doorknobs and frest-cut wood. Then one day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him on an ever-more-terrifying quest to create the “ultimate perfume”—the scent of a beautiful young virgin. Told with dazzling narrative brillance, Perfume is a hauntingly powerful tale of murder and sensual depravity.Translated from the German by John E. Woods. Read an excerpt here: http://ow.ly/AKT2n

I’m looking for distractions, easy laughs, encoded hope, life-enrichers, something big and hardy and true. I’m looking everywhere and I believe in that. Which is to say I believe in the potential, if not the outcome. But fuck what comes out; I’m willing to push until the fireworks. And you need to push heavy. So push heavy.
—  Adam Gnade

“Somewhere in the world there was a young woman with such splendid understanding that she’d see him entire, like a poem or story, and find his words so valuable after all that when he confessed his apprehensions she would explain why they were in fact the very things that made him precious to her…and to Western Civilization! There was no such girl, the simple truth being.”
— from “Lost in the Funhouse” by John Barth, now available for the first time as an eBook

Barth’s lively, highly original collection of short pieces is a major landmark of experimental fiction.  Though many of the stories gathered here were published separately, there are several themes common to them all, giving them new meaning in the context of this collection.

I'm being bombarded.

With training requests. I understand that everyone doesn’t want to work with me one on one given the expensive price, so I made the decision to write and publish TWO e-books. One will be geared towards women and one towards men. Supplementation, workout regiment, nutrition guidelines, and MORE! What would YOU want to see out of an ebook? Any input is greatly appreciated.
