Paperback book. Perfect binding. 148 pages. "I have lived quietly in this house for most of my life. Books accumulated and a space had to be cleared. 100s of volumes of fiction -- novels and tales -- were selected for the cull. Before I could dispose of the books I took images of 384 of the volumes and placed them, together with other information, in spreadsheets. The spreadsheets are a repository for the data. I also collected text from each volume, following an algorithm which was intended to ensure that I was not just picking out favorite bits, or suppressing parts I did not like. An Accumulation of Fiction is an aggregate formed from the collected text. An Accumulation of Fictions: Illustrations Volumes 1 - 288 is presented here." -- Description taken from the front of the book.
