Preserving thoughts for the enjoyment and edification of strangers, renouncing revelry, friendship, and love for the unlikely esteem of men unknown, is this not madness incarnate, or the closest one can come to rule over day and night, divide them, and see that it is good?

Petronius Jablonski studied Philosophy, Psychology, Mathematics, Philology, Classics, and Physics at UW Parkside. Some Call It Trypophobia is a collection of published stories and an existential analysis of the phobia. Schrödinger's Dachshund is his first novel. Mount Silenus began as therapy for Post-Traumatic Mountaineering Disorder and never looked back. Jablonski writes extensively about music, though there is only one song he reviews.

description
From Chandelier Press

When a skirmish of practical jokes escalates, three men learn the boundary separating pranks from vengeance is drawn in dust. An eye for an eye becomes a worthless guide once they’re lashing out blindly. Caught in the crossfire of their reprisals, Vicki, a sarcastic hairstylist, must decide whether to take sides in a war or play Gandhi to madmen.

The bullied becomes the b... Read more of this blog post »

“You’ve been robbed. Those times, where did they go? Once so alive but now hidden in a mass grave. And that’s where the future ones are headed. Remember that. All the days to come will vanish thus. What value or meaning can they contain? We are hoarders of dust.”
Petronius Jablonski, Schrodinger's Dachshund: A Novel of Espionage, Astounding Science, and Wiener Dogs

“She’s laughing. Do you hear that?” “We’re poised to capture the greatest beast since the T. rex and you’re intimidated by a maid.” “Está usted ocupado?” “Dammit. Hide this stuff before she cleans. She’ll think we’re in the middle of some mega gayfest.” “Well we’re not.” “But that’s the kind of shit biographers write about,” says Gilbert. “They’ll talk to everyone who saw us before we went up.” “History is going to be very kind to us. I can feel it.”
Petronius Jablonski, Mount Silenus: A Vertical Odyssey of Extraordinary Peril

“This is the cardinal virtue of an Objective narrative. Given its timeless nature, there is no need to assemble it with rackets and ruses. With the envy of eunuchs and ingenuity fanned by resentment, men incapable of profound insights deny the Objective nature of the written word in the despairing hope of dissuading those who know the Truth and have the courage to write it.

I, Petronius Jablonski, hereby forbid any and all Freudian, structural, post-structural, post-post-structural, post-colonial, post-anything analysis or deconstruction of my annals and condemn any and all such enterprises. All theorizing based on class, gender, and ethnicity is strictly prohibited.

An Objective narrative is not a Rorschach blot for one to project his pathologies and sundry whines. If the Reader insists on “reading into” the narrative, he should fill the margins with sketches of penises, vaginas, and stick-figures engaged in coitus.”
Petronius Jablonski, The Annals of Petronius Jablonski: An Odyssey of Historic Proportions and Priceless Treasure of Philosophy

Shut Up & Read: Schrödinger's Dachshund: A Novel of Espionage, Astounding Science, and Wiener Dogs 1 22 May 08, 2014 10:02PM  
“From daydreams on the road there was no waking. He plodded on. He could remember everything of her save her scent. Seated in a theatre with her beside him leaning forward listening to the music. Gold scrollwork and sconces and the tall columnar folds of the drapes at either side of the stage. She held his hand in her lap and he could feel the tops of her stockings through the thin stuff of her summer dress. Freeze this frame. Now call down your dark and your cold and be damned.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Road
