Care And Use Of The Key


Here's a short story I wrote, early on the process, that we used to pitch the series (then referred to as "Motel Man") to studios/networks/whomever.

Note that it varies in some points from the final mythology used in the miniseries. You probably shouldn't take it as canonical.

Also note that it's on my personal site, which is hardly a really professional web site (despite the fact that I work in the web industry). At some point I might move this to another, more complete, more polished web site. This URL may not be permanent.

Enjoy.

Priceless. I copied and pasted the whole thing into a word document so it can never be lost. I plan to read it tomorrow when I can really get into it.

I don’t think you should give up any more big secrets. I am one who is still hoping for a comeback.

Hehehehehhe "Thus, you may enter the room in Detroit, and emerge seconds later in Paris"

I knew it!! *lmao* why it´s always Paris? *wonders she, who wrote the exact same in her fan fiction".



Veeery interesting reading. I can see many points changed into better mythology in the series.

I do only wish I´d know what the room behind the luggage room in the Room 10 is..... is there a waterboiler???

I read it. The reference to Georg Cantor is telling. I always suspected there was some exotic mathematical and scientific thinking behind this.

To a large extent it was me imitating Jorge Luis Borges. If you haven't already read his stuff, check it out.
