Handle Your Business: a short book about managing your tiny business

A few years ago a friend of mine who owns a small consulting business was freaking out about their tax bill. Another posted about *their* huge tax bill and how they were going to have to go on a payment plan. Then a third was trying to figure out their retirement options. My book Handle Your Business is for them, and if you run (or want to run) a small business, it's for you too. [more inside]

Herebe: all you need to get started is a great idea.

There are dragons in Silicon Valley. Real, flapping, scaly ones, with teeth and claws; the kind that'll burn your Lower Haight apartment to cinders before you can pivot your way out of there. What's more, it looks like they can be harnessed and sold as a service. Can you say "opportunity"? Herebe is a short novel about Silicon Valley, startups, the battle for ideas ... and dragons. It's my first, and I would love MetaFilter's collective opinion. You can buy it on Amazon.com.

Zombies in Afghanistan

The outbreak of the undead in Afghanistan in 2007 shortly after a skirmish between the U.S. Army and the Taliban caused an international outcry. A village with a secret became the latest battlefield in the War on Terror. No one could predict how that battle would transform the world. Some charged that the military deliberately weaponized zombies, a war crime. Others thought the Army didn’t do enough to stop the outbreak. Rumors abound of the Taliban trying to make the undead into a new terrorist weapon. Today, hordes of the undead roam the region, threatening to destabilize every government in the region. You be the judge. Find out what really happened in this leaked interview with an eyewitness to the outbreak. [more inside]

140 And Counting: very very short fiction and poetry, but lots of it.

Maybe you were given an e-reader today, and you're looking for stuff to read on it? Well, I've been running a weekdaily, online literary-and-speculative magazine since July 2009 called Seven by Twenty, which uses Twitter as its publishing platform. Since writing has to fit in a tweet, it by necessity focuses on very, very short stories and short-form poetry (haiku and scifaiku are especially perfect lengths). Now I've published an ebook anthology of the 140 best pieces from the first two years of the magazine's history (plus one more for luck). [more inside]

Zombies of the World: A field guide to the undead.

A full color heavily illustrated book that describes 20 species of undead, their history, evolution, survival tips and more. It's already receiving great reviews like this and this. Zombies of the World reveals the undead to be a valuable part of our ecosystem and the key to new discoveries in medicine and technology. Few outside the scientific community even realize that creatures like the Egyptian Mummy (Mortifera mumia aegyptus) are actually zombies. Some species are even harmless to humans. The Dancing Zombie (Mortifera immortalis choreographicus) only seeks to thrill us with elaborate dance routines. Even if we could annihilate all zombies, we would lose knowledge potentially vital to our own survival. After decades of research, we have no idea why zombies never tire or stop. They possess an endless source of energy to shamble or (in some cases) sprint after us. Unlocking this mystery could benefit all humanity.The web series on Youtube further explains these mysteries.

“We will always have been who we are.”

The ten thousand things; the one true only; the Good Neighbours, yes yes, of course: but also violence, and power, and yes genderfuck, and hearts broken cleanly (and otherwise), the city of Portland, The F--rie Queene, those moments in pop songs when the bass and all of the drums except maybe a handclap suddenly drop out of the bridge leaving you hanging from a slender aching thread of melody waiting almost dreading the moment when the beat comes back, and the occasional bit of swordplay— City of Roses is an epic urban fantasy serial zine set rather firmly in Portland, Oregon. The first eleven chapters have now been gathered together in an EPUB-formatted ebook for your handheld reading convenience. [more inside]
