So here’s the deal.
I’m working on finishing my third book which will be about cyberpunk philosophy and the realization of cyberpunk technology in the modern world. I have no idea what I’m going to call it yet, but I just told you most of what it’s about. After that, I’m working on a fourth book and, perhaps, a fifth. The fourth book will also be non-fiction, and it’s going to be about a topic that will entice some, repel others, and it’s something I’m going to talk about on my blog here. What’s so controversial? What’s the big deal?
Yes, I know. It’s no secret that I think porn is an art form, but I’m actually going to write about it. There will be critiques, biography, history, and more. If you’re looking for shocking exposé, look elsewhere. This will be as much a paean to porn as Rolling Stone worships music. If that’s a problem, well, consider yourself warned. I’ll be marking content as NSFW as needed and some of the NSFW stuff won’t be pushed to social networks. I’m not looking to offend, but it’s porn. Some people think that too much cleavage is offensive, let alone bringing up text, images, and video that depicts two (or more) people having sex. Now that out of the way, let’s talk about the other book that may or may not come to be.
Because it’ll be fiction — very short fiction. Actually lots of short fiction.
I love flash fiction, and I’ve written a couple of things on here before. I’d like to write more and dammit, I’m going to start making some time to do that. Thing is, I’m not always going to call it flash fiction because, well… I don’t know. I just don’t like that term. Thing is, I sometimes write a quick story in two paragraphs. Something I jot down in a small notebook or something. Many of my stories come from images, because I do love images. So I’ll see a picture of something and suddenly I need to write a story about it. Doesn’t have to be a novel, doesn’t even have to be as long as a page. It’s just something that happens. I think, for now, I’ll call them snap stories, until I come up with a better title.
So I figure I’ll actually share that stuff here, and maybe make a book out of it. Since the images usually aren’t mine, I can’t sell it. But I’ve never harboured the illusion that I’ll get rich off my writing. If that book ever happens, you’ll be able to get it for free right here.
I’ve got lots of stuff going on around the web, and most of that has been experiment. Does this service work well for X? How does this website do with Y? That’s cool and everything, but I think it’s time to come home to my site. I really have two sites that I call mine, this one and Cyberpunk Librarian. It’ll be easier to focus on two sites rather than six or seven, but that means some of the stuff that was “too risqué” for this site might not be such a problem anymore. I mean, hell, I’m going to be writing a book about porn.
So thanks for joining me and I hope you stick around for the ride. I think it’ll be fun.
Also, there’s another project I’m working on that may become a book, but it will certainly be something you can catch online. More details to come as I work through the project but let’s just say I’m eagerly awaiting the return of a familiar… face?
