This is a non-profit attempt on our part to change the world.  Any donations will be used to further that cause in one way or another.  We won't use advertising or charge for content.  Maybe later we'll set up a member site or do something related, but this part will always be free. Maybe something will come from it that profits us on the side, but we won't compromise our work here to do it.

Submissions and guest writers are welcomed and encouraged.  If we like your stuff, we'll post it, whether it's writing, audio or video.  If we don't post it, it's not censorship, it's just that your stuff didn't suit our mood at that moment.  Don't take it personal and keep trying.  We do.

We take absolutely no responsibility for anything. We disavow any persons taking action based on any and every word published on this site. We don't give advice to anyone about anything. Everything written here is a work of fiction and any resemblance to anything in the real world is purely by coincidence.

"Life on the Far Side" is the creation of Bernard Grover, a 40-year veteran of theater, film, TV, print, and radio. His work includes award-winning writing, producing and editing. His work has appeared in major publicatins, network television, theaters, and cinemas worldwide, though you probably didn't stay to watch the credits, did you? Nobody ever watches the credits.

Grover is currently dwelling somewhere in the wilds of Indonesia while working on several novels and swinging deals in various market sectors, and promoting the Indonesian space program, while planning to vacation in the Gobi dessert. His life-long ambition is to be filthy rich and buy a medium-sized island in the South Pacific, which he will then declare an independent nation, and himself as philosopher-king and sole sovereign. The official language will be Navajo.

Comments and offers of venture capital are always welcome.

Do a Google search and you'll find that we've appeared on UrbanSurvival, Jeff Rense, David Icke, Lew Rockwell, Henry Makow, and dozens of other sites.  You'll also find us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, and other colossal wastes of time.  If you want to link up, then mention that you saw this site so we'll know if you're friend or foe.

Other than that, God bless, keep the home fires burning and we'll catch you on the Far Side!

Sampai jumpa!
