Inspirations and Thanks

Nurse With Wound
I am refraining from filling this page with “cool stuff I like,” but since “Shipwreck Library” was inspired by Steven Stapleton’s wonderful Shipwreck Radio project, a link seems in order!

A design company in Brooklyn, OYG helped me out with The Modern Word back in the day.
This gaming collective kindly hosted my very first Web page—Sarnath—back in the 1990s, and helped give the Libyrith and New York By Night a start.
