Turning Signs

by Gary Fuhrman

Turning Signs is a hypertext netbook and can be read in many ways, online or off. My advice is to start at the beginning, or even the preverse, a kind of guided meditation that comes before the beginning. But no matter where you start, you will need to read each part of it meditatively. If you try to read it as if it were a novel or a newspaper article or a post on social media, nothing much will happen.

To read it offline, use the link at the end of this paragraph to download the whole book as a Zip file (about 3 MB). After extracting the contents to the location of your choice, open the TS folder and doubleclick index.html. When your browser opens that file, you'll be reading the same page you are now, except it will be stored on your computer instead of the gnusystems website. The Table of Contents below, and other links internal to Turning Signs, will work the same as they do online. Here's the download link:
