Short and Tall Tales
(1960 - 2003)
Jesse Hang obtained an economics degree in Florida.
After his graduation he decided to go backpacking in Central America
and had lots of adventures in the heart of the Mayalands.
Upon his return, he joined a brokerage firm as a dealer ~ but soon felt
there was more to life than watching a bunch of figures
jiggle up and down a teletext screen.
In April 1992 our dear angelic friend Surender Bhart
invited him to Magick River for the weekend.
Within a few weeks Jesse was experimenting with
batik painting, oil crayons and acrylics.
In March 1993, Jesse began scribbling down little stories ~
which he'd then read aloud by kerosene lamplight to whoever was interested. Fireflies was the first yarn spun by Magick River's spontaneous storyteller. Soon he began transferring some of his stories to disk, but
he didn't like the idea of being edited for publication.
Antares and Mary succeeded in persuading Jesse that his stories were fine
just as they were and needed only cosmetic adjustments.
In Jesse Hang we have a natural-born storyteller, whose writings
read like they were intended for the ear and not just the eye.
