Listeners of my WFMU radio show are no doubt well aware of the illustrious Francis E. Dec, Esq. and his chimerical rants. Peter Branting and friends have continued the ongoing effort to document, preserve and study the man’s work, and created a rather impressive, unofficial, official Francis E. Dec, Esq. fan club/resource site. Heavily researched and chock full ‘o info, the site includes all of Mr. Dec’s writings (including a handful of brand new works, unearthed for the first time - some of them just angry letters), a massive glossary of terms he used in his writings (with theories and definitions, and also tie-ins to real events in his topsy-turvy life), and a FAQ and heartily-populated forum (about 100 ongoing threads). Plus a bunch of other stuff. Perhaps most impressive about the site is a lovingly crafted timeline of Mr. Dec’s life, which begins with the birth of his mother and father in Poland in the 1800’s, and ends with his death in 1996.
