Anthurian is a name given to a town in a short story I wrote while writing on the bus. I asked some of the other occupants for a ficitious name, and this is the first one that was offerred. Anthurian has many different incarnations: as a small rural town, as a locale in a short series of science fiction stories, but mostly as the setting for my thoughts.

About this Site
Version 1: The first iteration of the Anthurian site was done using ASP with a lot of includes and useless geegaws. Mostly brochure-ware, it did contain a lot of my poetry, prose, and artwork but there was very little to update and the actual design of the site restricted its growth potential.
Version 4: After months of work — during which Anthurian was completely down — version 4 was a new site from the ground up, no longer relying on the Blogger engine or kludge code. This time I’d switched to WordPress (v1.0) but with my own theme using valid XHTML and CSS. Besides the move to WordPress, the biggest thing I had done was to clean up of all the archives to make them as consistent as possible (in terms of the underlying code) and to remove as many dead links as I could find. Unfortunately, this version is pretty much lost to the archives of the Web…
Purgatorio: And lo, the life did intervene. And sometimes it was bad. And sometimes it was worse. And sometimes it was meh. And then things did improve for the better. But, through it all, Anthurian lay upon the rocks and languisheth for years.
Version 5: So here we are. Let’s kick this pig and get things started again! Using the latest version of WordPress, it’s unclear what direction I will take Anthurian in. Enjoy the ride!
