CEP0000009 Peter Hoflich/Self-titled, by Peter Hoflich

(currently 105 pages long)

Peter Hoflich/Self-titled is the working title for an unfinished collection of short stories begun in 1995.  Several of the stories are metidations on the nature of the Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.  This collection is more experimental than An Alienation Almanac, they are just as eclectic as those of 123.45 Stories although somewhat longer.  Several stories attempt humorous or surreal situations, others are semi-autobiographical or follow conventional story structure.  I predict that they will be finished in early 2000.
