About the Author
Victor Mahn is one of the eccentrics – he loves to get a story of fiction that is out there, all juiced up with the proper historical data and allegorical significance.
Having travelled to many countries around Asia, and having experienced, first-hand, the mysteries and peculiarities of the cultures, places and the various people in these realms, he has much to offer with his words inscribed onto paper.
‘The Delirium of Negation’ is his first book, one that took immense amounts of time in researching and constructing from the ground up. With many other works in the pipeline, rest assured, you’d be properly entertained. God Bless!
