Whatever you do with your life in the future, make sure you read the story ‘King of Pain’. You will find it under Pages – King of Pain. It is over 8000 words long, so grab a snack, a cuppa… and some tissues. (You may need them for the part of ‘Condemnation Complete’… it is a mental minefield…).
Frankly a mindblowing tale of suffering, finally published here on RafaelPyton.com in all its gory glory. It is a rewritten, remastered, much extended and much improved version of an old email I sent out to some of my friends some time ago. Now, forget that one: this is the real deal. I’ve poured out all my heartache in a bloody waterfall of pure pain, I’ve emptied the burning gastank that is my soul.
Bear in mind that it is also ultimately some sort of a success story, a kind of victory snatched from the jaws of death and defeat, as I rise from the ashes time and time again like the fucking firebird Phoenix.
A warning: although at the time it felt surreal, like I was taking part in a modern Book of Job, this is not fiction. I repeat, this is NOT fiction. It is much worse – it is reality. And it happened to me.
