Big milestone. Yeah, it’s only six bucks so far, and it’s Amazon Kindle, but it’s good. In fact, this story was never posted on this blog, and I think most readers here would like it if they’ve been fond of my fiction. It’s called Magnificent Desolation. The other story was here, and it has been […]Read more "Woooo! Published and paid!"
The world now knows a surplus of meaning like a nuclear apocalypse. Bombs fall all around us. But we shall not be free until the last fact is strangled with the entrails of the last scruple. This is perhaps what Donald Trump is achieving.Read more "The Mark: Take It Or Leave It"
If I hadn’t written this I would troll it in the comments. It’s obtuse, tries to pack in far too much information into one chapter, is by turns far too on the nose and far too up its own ass with “subtle” dialogue…but I’m proud of it anyway. It just needs an edit. If you […]Read more "The House That Jack Built VI"
“We’re done. Just let it be done.” It is finished. The Christian story is the story of rational law being wielded as a club, and this being transcended by grace. It is the story of how an entire planet learned to love, instead of trying to beat the house. But there is a side of the […]Read more "How To Build A World That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later: No Man’s Tale"
epistemic status: Blood and Gasoline I have been asked by the good folk at SlateStarCodex’s subreddit (Scott Alexander sure has his supporters, no matter how much he deserves the fight he started) to harden up my case a little bit and make the bet more attractive to Scott so he will participate. Given that […]Read more "Bumaye!"
I normally quite like Scott Alexander. Like me, I suspect he’s never had more of a creative peak or a vulnerable period than early 2016. I also suspect I would remind him of his patients. I’m fun that way. This is why it amazes me…worries me, even, when I come down from a manic phase […]Read more "Unfortunately, It Is The Current Year"
For those of you who always wanted more of me, my work, and other things I find absolutely worthy of my time and yours (subject to cross-temporal chronostrategic full-spectrum analysis and other timey-wimey gobbledygook, as well as getting off my butt and going outside) we now offer a Facebook page, which can be found right here!

V March 20, 1946 Sandia Base, New Mexico Geoge Stephen Morrison, a decorated officer in the United States Navy, veteran of World War II’s Pacific air war, erstwhile astral contact of Marjorie Cameron Parsons, sat in his office, staring at the wall. I have a three-year-old son. What am I even doing? James Douglas Morrison […]Read more "The House That Jack Built (Chapter V)"

I’d like to thank my most dedicated readers in America’s hat for making this blog what it is. You most of all have encouraged me to go for broke and publish, because apparently Canadians will read anything! You don’t get to burn the White House in the German timeline, at least not yet, but I’m […]Read more "Blame Canada!"
