Zibaldone No. 1

Chekhov wrote so much, produced so many stories of various sorts, that Russian weekly magazines printed many of his satirical pieces under pen names. These pen names numbered at least 40 and included "A Man Without a Spleen," "My Brother's Brother," and "Wrench-nut Number 6." (1)

"The only reason we didn't set up hotdog stands in the midst of the Egyptian temple of Karnak is because it was out of the wy and served no large commercial purpose." (2)

NewYork makes good use of HTML to tell interconnected stories. Drawing the web out of the Web: "One Block."
