Nif was inspired by, and draws heavily from, Nick Montfort's "The Utterance of the Petulant Child." In fact, it is pretty much an homage to "Utterance" which attempts to turn the petulance dial up to eleven, so to speak. Its creation was also sparked by a dim memory of the life ambition of one of the characters on the terrible 80's sitcom Head of the Class, which was: to write a novel that was one long palindrome.
