For readers' convenience, I have placed the entire text of my book at this web site. I don't expect customers to read it back-to-back in this format (and I strongly recommend purchasing the hardcopy book), but it will help readers with research (using search engines or word processor edit searches). These are HTML text files, browsable directly without downloading. Footnotes are presented at the bottom of each file.

The book does have some mature content. It is recommended for individuals over eighteen and for high-school students with teacher, mentor, or parental support.

I am providing both the text of the book as published in July 1997, and four chapters submitted to commercial literary agents in the Spring of 1996 but never before published.
