‘Neither an intro, nor an afterword’


Marek Hlasko, a polish ‘ex-writer’, ends one of his books with a short chapter titled ‘neither an intro, nor an afterword.’ In it, he criticises intros and afterwords, or, more precisely, the type of ideas these tend to deliver.

‘Intros usually set you up, afterwords tend to try to justify some thing or another.’

I abhor long good-byes, and my patience for long intros is tested equally fast. Writing here for the first time puts me a bit on the spot in that sense.

Rather than set you up, dear reader, this is as close as we’ll get to an intro. And since I’ve written before, my aim is also that what follows here doesn’t become an afterword either.

In that spirit, welcome at Starfox.one.
