This blog explores the indistinct borderlands where everyday reality dissociates into the transcendent, the unconscious, the hypothetical, the simulated, the abstract, the phantasmal.

My name is John Doyle. I grew up in Des Plaines IL, the “City of Destiny,” home of Ray Kroc’s first McDonald’s franchise and John Wayne Gacy’s last victim. I left there long ago; Durham NC is our latest stopover. You can download my long fictions for free at salonpostisme.com. You can email me at portalic@gmail.com.
