The Roshi was my second attempt at a creative short story. I wanted to write a
story about religion and enlightenment that takes place in my own version of
the "World of Darkness." My studies of Mahayana Buddhism, Skinny Puppy, and
H.R. Giger all influenced this work. Although this is the first chapter of the
story, it was written after "Enlightenment". If you see text in purple, that
is because I haven't completed the chapter yet.
