Thanks for your curiosity. These are some tough questions to answer, but I'll give them a try.
> what is this all about?
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground, where they encountered my father, crossing the street at a crosswalk.
They ignored him.
Five years later, I was born.
Subsequently, I spent five years writing a novel called 1OCT1993.
> who are you and what is the idea behind the book
I'm not really Stanley Lieber. A lot of the characters in the book are from a comic series I made with my cousin when we were in grade school. A few years ago I started doing new ACTRON strips. You can find most of them at massivefictions.com.
> what is massive fiction and how does it relate to the green?
MASSIVE FICTIONS is the name of my publishing company. It's also the name of a publishing company set up by Pennis Mold in the novel. Eventually, the company employs another of the characters, Rimbaud, and finally goes out of business, owing to the shrinking demand for prose/graphic fiction in the late 22nd century.
Fortunately, the world had already ended in 1993, so few jobs were affected by the company's failure. (Rimbaud's being one notable exception.)
> i also have looked at text adventure #1 and i found it interesting
The first seven issues of TEXT ADVENTURE form a sequel, of sorts, to 1OCT1993. Starting with issue #8, I've begun a new novel (currently untitled).
