  • Current and future writing projects

    July 22, 2022 by

    Hey, everyone. It’s been a while. Most of the past year has been spent writing, editing, meditating, and not doing much else. Didn’t you hear!? There was a pandemic! But enough of that. In the interest of transparency, I’d like to announce some really, really exciting stuff in the realm of books. My co-author Curator… Read more

  • CC Vignettes #6: Lattram

    September 10, 2022 by

    “Lopers. That’s what they call ’em. Before our unit arrived on-world, it was all jokes, you know? Nobody thought something that looked like an overgrown rabbit would cause any trouble. But we weren’t ready for them. Not at all. The first week, we had thirty casualties. Most of those were patrols that got separated down… Read more

    September 10, 2022 by

    “The storms are getting worse and worse. Last week, one of our guys had to sell his genome as an NFT collection just to afford another ventilator block. The reports don’t paint an optimistic picture for the future, either. There’s supposed to be another big dust-up next week, and we aren’t prepared for it. Not… Read more

  • CC Vignettes #4: Halcium Echo

    September 7, 2022 by

    “Halcium Echo is, in my humble opinion, the overlooked gem of the Hegemony’s core worlds. Several centuries ago, it was renowned for its landmark contributions to the Hegemony’s artistic, cultural, and aesthetic development, boasting no less than sixty-four hundred universities across its metropolitan surface. Although its splendor has faded somewhat in recent years, it remains… Read more

  • CC Vignettes #3: The Last Stand on Kettras B

    September 6, 2022 by

    “The situation is growing dire. Although I appreciate the logistical challenges of the operation, and certainly sympathize with the opinion that this is an unprecedented call for materiel, there are no alternatives. Each day of conducting ground operations on Kettras B requires approximately one-point-five million shells, one million liters of fuel, five thousand fission cores,… Read more

  • CC vignettes #2: The Fern Wars

    September 5, 2022 by

    “… and our platoon arrived for service about twenty years into the broader conflict. We were part of a Clapper unit. [Murmuring] Oh, a Clapper? They were sort of… biomechanical, I guess. I’m not sure. The indigenous forces providing fire support had loads of them. Maybe relics from an older, more primitive war… though they… Read more

    September 3, 2022 by

    Hello, all. This is the first of many short stories and pieces of fiction set in the Cutthroat Cosmos. Today’s tale, Le Crescendo des Mèmes, is a vision of a world on the brink of annihilation—and what a party it is. The first packet hits the Seed network seventy-five microseconds after the end’s beginning. o… Read more

  • The Path to Experiencing God Lies in Forgetting God

    August 16, 2020 by

    Before you react too strongly to the title of this post, secular or religious, I want to propose an idea. Suppose you were an explorer back in the days before every piece of land had been charted and recorded. Suppose, also, that you encountered a strange land unknown to your fellow countrymen. Your first desire… Read more

  • Learning to Choose Peace

    February 18, 2020 by

    Throughout our days, we love to “do things.” We may not appreciate specific activities, such as washing dishes or going to work at 6 AM, but we are certainly enthralled by the process of being busy with “things.” And very often, we do these “things” out of sheer force of habit, or worse, out of… Read more
