A One-PDF History of European Socialism and Communism

Some friends and I compiled a 500-page PDF that does the following (from the Introduction): "We present here a history of twentieth-century communism through primary sources, divided into fourteen chapters arranged in chronological order. Each chapter deals with a historical moment or theoretical debate, and contains an amount of reading appropriate for one week’s time. We hope that this reader will provide the foundation for seminars and reading groups." [more inside]

BookHunch.com: the anti-Pinterest bookmarking site

This is a new project I've just released in beta. I was inspired to do it b/c I was getting tired of stale bookmarked links: a lot of useful blog articles disappear and neither web.archive.org nor Google's cache were very helpful. I'm calling it the "anti-Pinterest" because the focus is on preserving text, using a readability-style algorithm to strip away ads and other web page boilerplate. It's still new, and a little rough around the edges, but I'm interesting in hearing what you guys think! If you sign up today, contact me through the form on the site with your username and I'll give you free access for a month.

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.

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]
