O'Grady's Note: My goal in writing this "narrative" was to incorporate every title of every book Fiction Collective/FC2/Black Ice Books has published since its inception in 1974. FC2 Managing Editor Brenda Mills wrote:


"Wow, I love it! Jonathan [Baumbach] should get [his son, Film Director] Noah to make a video for it. Love the end. We were dancing to it. I'm thinking we should play it at our reception at AWP in Austin in March.


You have books in your library that we no longer have even a single copy of!"


Brenda is sending an announcement to FC2's entire membership (to all the original authors whose titles are hereby referenced). Very interesting. . . .


We are curious to hear your thoughts. Plz leave a comment at the end!

"THE LIFE & TIMES OF MAJOR FICTION"

It was Jonathan Baumbach, I believe, who said

a novel is sometimes, perhaps at some level always,

an act of aggression toward the world at large.
