A realization that has come to me lately as I reflected about worldbuilding is that, at least to a certain extent, usually an imaginary world that has been well-received by the public is centered around a core metaphysical or meta-narrative idea. You can quickly examine many of the big worlds in entertainment and see a … Continue reading What’s your world about
My first try with the Monthly Reads series has been a success. People have in fact read it contrary to expectations, and I discovered that it allows me a couple of things: mainly of hinting at elements of a story which I found notable but not so big as to justify an entire post, and … Continue reading Comics Bimonthly #1 – May, June 2021
The sun kissed the minarets and domes of golden Parthulah the day her Prince became a man, His 20th birthday; and He arose early in the morning, when the sun is still cold and its shades jut toward the West, and gathered all the councils and all the court, and every servant and every outstanding … Continue reading [SHORT STORY] The Lovesick Prince
In spite of myself being stuck with playing Yakuza Kiwami non-stop in the first part of the month, and of the subsequent return to studying, I have managed to read a good number of things. I’m one of those who read attentively rather than quickly, and yet reading as much as I can is to … Continue reading Monthly Reads – May 2021
Of all the memories of my time in the desert, when I, younger and bolder, worked in the African north, it is a weird dream to occupy the first place and rule all over the rest of my experiences. But this story, although developing in the realm of Morpheus, starts in the waking world, under … Continue reading [SHORT STORY] Snake’s Bite

I don’t make great numbers (fine by me) but such thing implies that I don’t necessarily get the kind of passionate attention that makes people wait for the … Continue reading Retvrning to Post, Updates, No More Gynopolitcs, etc.

It has been fourteen days since the last dispatch from Bug World. Disassociation continues, the creatures around me are having a hard time holding together their human visage, the skin is sloughing off, revealing slimy carapaces. I was welcomed back to work with a catalog of mandatory online training. We switched to a new computer … Continue reading Dispatches From Bug World: Tecno-Crapitalism, Techno-Demons, and Mishima
Welcome to this new series! Here I want to list a collection of books which I think are more apt to represent the NewPub movement, a crown of the best works and of the most different from the checkboxes of traditional publishing. Opening a series about an artistic movement directed to fiction with a non-fiction … Continue reading [NewPub Selection] J.D. Cowan, The Pulp Mindset
Beloved franchises and intellectual properties are all the Hollywood machine wants, because they’re lazy. They can expend minimal effort in drumming up interest in their projects. A known quantity, a beloved franchise, a name they can trade on, becomes the skinsuit that these weirdos can wear while twisting and subverting the works of better men … Continue reading You Legitimately Hate to See It
