Instructions to the Editor
I would prefer that in no edition of this book should there be a preface or book cover description written by the editor because a preface introduces the problems of bias, preconceptions, and directed thought. In order to decrease the problems of bias I also would like there to be a five-year ban from teaching this book in schools because I know the preconceptions schools have with literature and I would like the public to have some time to digest this book before they are forced to read it. Also, in the age of the Butterfly Effect, I am a firm believer that subtleties make a huge difference and that is why this book should be not altered in words (including synonyms), letters, punctuation marks, etc. without my permission. Every “typo” could be intentional.
