You have come across quite a number of different authors in each of the A.N. sections. These authors each have their own distinct ideas, areas of thought, style, and voice. But each speaks authoritatively from within MMHTT. Their writings are important elements within the MMHTT canon.
- MMHTT: the anonymous voice of a true-blue, MMHTT devoté; a true believer in MMHTT orthodoxy. This person, whoever they are, speaks with authority and wisdom, as if they were Marcel Maus himself. This person’s anonymity is typical of an MMHTT orthodox sectarian and harkens back to a more draconian time within MMHTT history (V.1.0) when all MMHTT mausketeers were required to remain entirely anonymous and express only MMHTT-approved viewpoints using MMHTT-sactioned vocabulary.
- Author Note: a flat-rhizome fundamentalist from Sacramento, CA, now living in Bangkok, TH, where he teaches english. Mr. Note thinks only the flattest of structures should be considered rhizomes. He has been an MMHTT Maus since 1987. We honor his commitment and contributions but should note that most mausketeers cannot tolerate his extreme and rigid beliefs and generally disregard his critical statements.
- Authro Noté: an extremely shy academic who teaches philosophy at a community college near Duluth, MN. As a student she studied under a third-gen analytic philosopher but always kept continental theory books under her mattress, reading them in secret long into the night. She has been an MMHTT Maus since 1995. Though usually quiet and unassuming, whenever she speaks she brings a clear sense of history and theory to MMHTT discussions.
- Atro Nöteē: a process theorist based in a suburb of Copenhagen, DK. Atro has developed a theory of everything based on the grammar of relational texts. She has been an MMHTT Maus since 1994.
- Anthro Naughty is the stage name of a genderqueer storyteller and lead singer of a glammy-metal band based in Berlin (a sort of post-'89 Sigue Sigue Sputnick/ pre- 2000 The Darkness, with a stage presence that is equal parts swishy/tragic Syd Barrett and tragic/tragic Sid Vicious). Anthro is a kind but dark soul with a voracious appetite for vegan sausages and skin-tight, faux black leather pants. They have been an MMHTT Maus since 2002.
- Snauthor Snote: a moderately functional, schizoid recluse and occasional handyman whose whereabouts are uncertain. Snauthor’s theories, though often crackpot and otherwise upside down, offer an important bridge between real-world, current events and MMHTT orthodoxy. He has been an MMHTT Maus since 2000 but has not been seen by anyone since the start of the George W. Bush administration’s second term. He communicates exclusively through messages taped to the antlers of his pet Chevrotain, a small species of deer whose distinct ear, snout shape, and long tail resemble that of a maus.
- Axial Nighthawk: a Native American mystic, healer and union organizer based in Billings, MT. He has been an MMHTT Maus since 2008. Though Axial has not contributed any written A.N.s to this project, his role as an MMHTT A.N. author is as a guide, helping Readers navigate the post-interpreted, dreamstate afterlife of all MMHTT A.N.s. written by all other MMHTT authors.
