Conspiracy of Words is the site for new and old writing by Ben Thurley.

By day I am CEO with International Nepal Fellowship Australia.

By night I write. Sometimes.

What you read here is fiction for the most part. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is almost certainly intentional, but I’m hardly likely to admit it in any particular instance.

Most of the writing categories are self-explanatory. But a quick word about the short pieces gathered under the category Today. Each day, I take a wikipedia entry of something that happened on that day in history – a birth, a death, a historical incident – and riff off it. The resulting piece of writing reflects the contents of my brain more than the actual historical event, but there you are.

Enjoy. Or not. That part of it is on you.
