Some blooody Journo became a bit of a hero as he struggled and strived to stay alive to finish his best-seller about his Cancer.

He broke the News in the way his muse told him: his column – first daily, then weekly. A Digest of his Digestive Collapse.

it was all just a game.

A Grand Cosmic Joke.

He became a household Name though nobody really knew who he was.

The Way Out is dark.
