No One Thing experiments with mixing narrative forms. There are several series of texts, each with a different form. Readers can read within a series or move between different series in any order. Interplays and echoes between the texts generate something beyond their content.

One series reflects on some more-than-human capacities. There is a series of uneventful non-stories. There are cocktails, fictional essays, stories from another time, direct addresses, parallel narratives involving two beings, and dialogues. The dialogues are meant to be read aloud, but many of the other texts also encourage audible expression.

The time lapse looks at a mock up that allows a reader to shuffle between narrative forms in a book. A volume like this might be No One Thing_One, with the possibility of No One Thing_Two or No One Thing_Three, etc.
