A Book of Kostis:
X-Ray K, Quotations From Citizen Richard

This represents my own initial selection to August 2006. Could readers relishing other passages from my prose, as well as their discoveries of corrections, please send them to me via this website, thanks.

In addition to publishing The Book of Kostis as a continuous text, now available on Kindle, I want to use a structure unique to the Internet where only the chapters titles are initially visible. These become portals, so to speak, to viewing only one aphorism at one time.

Every writer wants ultimately to write lines that will be remembered after he's gone, though other ambitions will sidetrack him through most of his writing career. —Richard Kostelanetz, Aphors (in progress).
