This Web site is the online home of Michael Hickins; writer, raconteur, and really good guy. Michael has written rather a lot, and would very much like you to read what he has written. Some of what he has written is available here, on his site. Other material is available in print or as a new-fangled eBook, which requires some of your hard-earned money to procure. All proceeds go toward saving dolphins, insofar as the more money Michael gets, the more he promises to not kill dolphins. As his onetime employee, onetime brother-in-law, and full time fan of his work, I hope you enjoy his linguistic linguini. — mynameismonkey
