I am drawn to random patterns where ever they present themselves. Cement is a great canvas for these surprising stories. I found this in seating blocks, set against nature, behind the length of condos in Redmond, WA.

Humor Science Fiction gross out dystopian consumption dystopia late-stage capitalism cyberpunks

One of, if not the weirdest story I've ever written. The idea came to fruition when I was driving around with my friend Matt. What had originally been written as a comic script back when I was still under the impression that that was a thing I'd be doing, it got trunked for years,then reworked as a short story. It found a home in the final issue of the forever beloved Broadswords and Blasters. Minor content warning for bodily excretions.

The Structure

Published Mar 7, 2020 · 3,562 words (13 minutes) · 418 views

Science Fiction dystopian

This is one of the first short stories I finished when I refocused on writing starting in 2012. I got the idea when I was lost in a multi-storey carpark, trying to find my car. This was one of my Clarion West application stories (I mean, one of the successful ones!) It took 2nd place in the KSP Foundation's annual short-story prize in 2014, and was originally published on the now-defunct but totally rad Australian science-fiction short-story site 'Slink Chunk Press'.

It's been said of wealth that you can't take it with you when you die--but now, you can. As long as you've got the money, you can pay to have a digital duplicate of your consciousness cavort in a simulated afterlife on a private server forever. Unless you're Lehann Margrove, who got separated from his husband and duped into a "Paradise" he never wanted.
