When he conspired with his co-creator of [[Chiaroscuro]] he decided to take Eric Blair as his pen name. He had used the name as a character name previously, the story was about a man who believed himself to be a spy/assassin though he was in fact just a pathetic imaginative junky and was told from the perspective of a girl who took care of him and met him through his occasional job as a substitute teacher.
