I am a man obsessed with duality. This paradigm of perpetual contradiction at the core of our mortal existence is fascinating to me. It’s no coincidence that this series, like most of my writing, dwells on a dialogue between forces: magic-logic, past-present, life-death. You can never truly understand one without the other.
