Jupiter, Floating Islands of Grease, and Angeloids - A Serial Web Novel

Some time back I read how if there was life in Jupiter's atmosphere, it might live on floating islands of congealed hydrocarbons. Next thing I knew, I was writing a serial novel (new posts on M, W, F) with that as a starting point. Of course once you get humans living in Jupiter's atmosphere, humans modified to have wings becomes a short next step.

NaNoWriMo Doom Clock

I made this for myself when flirting with the prospect of writing last autumn, but I felt compelled to clean it up and share it with the world for this year's contest. Starting November 1, it's going to start counting up from zero to 50,000, which will be reached at midnight on the 1st of December. It was designed as a tool to inspire, but I think the actual effect might be more troubling. I guess that depends whether you're on pace or behind.

My first (metafiction) novel free for ereaders

The first iteration of my first novel is out for any curious and adventurous readers. A deluxe book/app is currently in the works. Modern Mythology is a metafiction novel comprised for four parts: modern mythology, a sequel of sorts to Goethe's Faust in the form of poetic screenplay. Small Wood Volumes, a horror tinged bildungsroman set in a small town on the Oregon coast. The Earthman Chronicles, a science fiction jaunt through 1940s Pasadena by way of suburban sprawl, L. Ron Hubbard, Jack Parsons and many more. #, prose and poetry dealing with brain damaged souls, the death of education as an institution, artificial life, and creeping madness. The texts can stand alone or together as a whole. [more inside]

My mother's novel

In the late 1960's, my mom, young and naive, was arrested entering the US with a little bit of pot. She was thrown into a Texas jail, and threatened with years behind bars. This experience ended up being the basis of an experimental / poetic novel she wrote during the '70s, which was meant to be published in the '80s, but things fell apart and it never actually made it to press. Shortly after that, my parents divorced, and then a few years later, my mother was diagnosed with MS. The novel has been sitting on the back burner for a long time, but is finally available. (It's like time travel.) [more inside]
