Post Welcome to My Multiverse

Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and…no, wait. That’s not me. That’s the devil, as portrayed by Mick Jagger. Please allow me introduce myself…again.

I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE, AND I BRING Y – no, sorry. That’s not me, either. That was Arthur Brown. Weird world he lived in.

My name is Ira Nayman. I have been writing humour in various genres for various media since I was eight years old. Yes – that is a long time. And, you are very rude for pointing it out.

My first novel, Welcome to the Multiverse* will be/is being/has always been published by Elsewhen Press. This space will be open to questions, comments and quibbles about the novel when it comes out. In the meantime, I thought I would fluff the pillows and configure the furniture to suit myself, as it were, so that when the rush of post-publication posters appears, the place will look lived in. I will take my posts, for the time being, from other places. Some will come from my Web site, Les Pages aux Folles (http://www.lespagesauxfolles.ca). Others will come from my various social media outlets. To get the complete social media feeds, look for me on:

Hello Ira,
I've looked at your website and facebook etc. I have a question though.
What is a Friednish (come to that, what is a nish at all, however it is cooked)?
In what way are they Thrishty?
Okay that was more than one question, sorry.

Hi, Invisible Man.

May I call you Visi?

"Shtay thrishty my friednishes" is a line I used on my Web site a few months ago; I liked the euphony of it so much that I incorporated it into the name of my Facebook page. When there are enough people following the Thrishty Friednishes page, I plan on holding a contest centered on the phrase, so I hope you won't mind if I don't answer the question here.

My Web Goddess thought it might be a reference to a "knish," a tasty meat doughnut that the Jewish people ate in the desert when they were pretending to be starving. (Well, that was what a knish was the last time I visited my local deli, even if it was not, strictly speaking, referred to in the Old Testament.) My Web Goddess was wrong, but she did remind me of something I hadn't eaten in far too long, so her post was yummy, and by no means in vain...
