About Dan Granot

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.

    Um, yes. Ted Sturgeon wrote it in a weekend long after it was a best seller. Jean Shepherd had a bit of fun.

    You write like H. P. Lovecraft.

    I got H.P. Lovecraft and Dan Brown. I didn’t feel so good about that. Then I put in some of my favorite Roger Zelazny and found that he wrote like Dan Brown. Now I feel better.
