Mark Cunningham has a few books out, including two from Otoliths: 80 Beetles and Helicotremors.

He writes of the above: "... from a manuscript titled Morfact, concerning the development of the human embryo; the pieces here are from the very beginning, from (before) conception up to the implantation of the embryo.

"The language of the pieces, with its blurred, spliced, and split words, tries to convey to some extent the process of an embryo’s development, not just its final goal. Genetic code is over-coded in many ways: different genes and chromosomes do more than one thing; the same process of development can be carried out by more than one set of genes; mutations occur. Instructions come from may directions, along with the possibility of ambiguous readings or faulty readings. Thus the title, which splices "morf" and "fact" to get "more fact."

"In these pieces, “normal” instructions are in plain font and defective instructions or readings are in italics."
