Home Hey everybody! Happy 2020 😀 Allow me to kick off the new year with a -bit- of exciting news. After six sleepless years of typing up short stories in coffee shops, college libraries, and my shitty subsidized housing unit; after six years of editing and submitting to countless journals and magazines on Newpages and the Submission Grinder, and rolling my eyes at countless rejection notices from Submittable, I am finally able to present to you my authorial debut: The Parasite From Proto Space & Other Stories. This collection of nine weird and speculative fiction tales will be the first of many books I plan on penning throughout the course of my career. You can purchase it here at clashbooks.com or here at amazon.com. The COVID-19 pandemic obliterated any hope of touring to promote this book in 2020 (and most likely, the greater part of 2021.) But if public readings and conventions are ever a thing in the hopefully not-too-distant future, you’ll still be able to buy it from me along with the novel I’m working on which may see a release in 2022 if things go swiftly and smoothly. *** Greetings, pilgrims of cyberspace! Welcome to the Garden of the Jellyfish. The fruit growing in this garden will supply your soul with the nutrients (audio, visual and textual information) it has been craving since the day you graduated from college and got dropped (with a sack of student loan debt) into a maze with no exit and no piece of cheese waiting at the end. An example of such nutrients (to whet your appetite,) is the fact that your consciousness is actually a neuron in a network of sentient minds spanning the galaxy cluster. These networks (yes, there are many of them) are what I like to call “Jellyfish Entities.” The Jellyfish may seem incomprehensible or godlike at first glance but believe me, they are not. They are simply creatures of a higher order than us. Above the plane we and the Jellyfish inhabit is a realm called the Unknowable. This title is a misnomer because I actually know a great deal about it. I won’t go into details here, but suffice it to say that the Unknowable is populated by entities whose actions directly affect us here in the lower realm. At this point, I’ll admit that I provided facts about the Jellyfish and the Unknowable in order to entice you. Do you want to know more about our universe? Are you thirsting to uncover secrets that no world religion, scientific practice or philosophy course can teach you? All you need to do is explore this Garden. Discover things hidden in its nooks and crannies, upturn every stone and study every facet of its walls for signs of secret doors. I have planted these kernels of knowledge for you. You have been given the special privilege to reap what I have sown. Some of the fruits, like those found on earth, may contain poisonous juices. Enjoy them at your discretion. Stay safe and have fun!
