Statement of Purpose

The Butterfly Book of Pressed Dreams is an online space for a fantasy world I, Stuart Bousel, have been creating since I was about fifteen or sixteen years old. Yes, like most aspiring fantasists, there are maps and drawings and timelines and notes, and that is what can be found here. There may some day be a novel or novella or short stories too. But no promises. For now, this is simply a space for me to dream. In light of that, all the material here is “in process” and should be viewed as such by anyone who stumbles upon the space. That said, it’s here because I wanted to share, so… feel free to explore and enjoy.
