His written work includes teleplays, screenplays, white papers, adverts, procedures, manuals, et al. The writing style of his literary works is a portmanteau of Romanticisme, Décadentisme, and Symbolisme wherein those written works may be considered variations on a Theme in which leitmotifs of Chaos, Existence, and Dreams are used in all after having been seen at the Peep-shows and Sideshows of Logic and Reason.

Théorèmes, Rhymes & Tales: Voyages et «Pièces condamnées, galanteries, epigraphes, pièces diverses & bouffonneries1» (including maxims, adagia, and aphorisms, gnomes and saws [unless otherwise acknowledged]) have been written by him. «La Femme Eidôlon : A Tale» eBook [http://self.gutenberg.org/eBooks/WPLBN0004102400-La-Femme-Eid-lon--A-Tale-by-Fraser-Sean.aspx] was written over a Thirty-year Entr'acte.
