The name of this novel I wrote is Oppurntyille, just in case anyone who might be curious about that sort of thing Googles the title. Such an endeavor would bring him or her to this page, where they will find this little collection of truly impressive writings, and undoubtedly be very impressed and want to help get that sucker published.

Where does the title come from? Well, one of the main characters, Walther, comes to America, and one of the crazy tall tale elements of his story is that he learns English on the boat over from a guy whose life he saved from several horrible sea creatures. He learns the language, but not the spelling. He arrives in America, tries to change his name to Walther Opportunity, and that doesn't work out.

You know, you should read the book. It's pretty crazy, just like that little anecdote.
