The Highest One Writing

The Hillside Commons presents The Highest One Writing: the story of a crazed author told mostly through his work. Let’s get right into it, yeah?

The story starts with Running: How To Torture Yourself And Enjoy It |The Unvictimized Edition| by Hunter Owens Wallace (HOW from here on out), a satirical self-help book about running. The longest chapter (by far) is HOW’s life story, there’s a chapter of interviews with other runners, a chapter of tips and tricks and workout ideas, a chapter that explains how to run, and then there’s an appendix.

Arc II is Roadtrip: The ¡Gramango! Edition, a satirical travel novella which includes the original novella interwoven with HOW reading the book to his grandMother and her cat Mango. HOW goes to North Carolina to visit a friend, then makes a pitstop in Virigina to visit another friend on his way home.

Next up we have A Lyme-Brained Rhyme Game, a satirical anthology of poems and essays on various topics from The Human Conundrum to Dimensionality. There are four chapters, each one containing an essay and tenish poems, and there’s also an interlude called To Bee Or Not To Bee.

Fourth is The 2020 Event |The Main Event|, a satirical novel about aliens that do psychedelic drugs and the subjective nature of reality. And uh, yeah.

Book 5 (arc IVS) is The Abusive Runner’s Log. It doesn’t have much to do with the overall story.

Arc V is The 2020 Event |The Sideshows|, a satirical anthology of 62 short stories, some of which directly intersect with the story told in The 2020 Event |The Main Event| (Universe W-2020), some of which take place in parallel universes (W-78, W-420, etc).

The final entry is called Convenient Incidents.

The Highest One Writing is nothing short of a journey into the depths of insanity and back, and considering how it’s 600,000 words long, you’ll probably find something to get upset about. This project played a pivotal role in my life and helped me get through a particularly dark time, and thus it goes to some pretty lightless places. I would not recommend it to children or those of us who are easily broken. The damn thing nearly broke me, if I’m being honest, and I couldn’t be happier with the way the final product came out. If you decide to pick it up, I hope you get something out of it.

If you’re there, hypothetical reader, thank you for being there. From this day on, we move forever forward~
