Minor spoilers (come on you had to have seen it coming) (actually I regret ending book 1 before he had a chance to USE his newfound powers for anything) but I commissioned Book 2 Barsamin from preservedcucumbers, now older and with more yaoi angst.  
As an aside, more than a bit annoyed with tumblr’s markdown editor simply Not Supporting features. But I don’t know that any tumblr engineers follow me on Twitter, which is my usual method of getting stupid things fixed.

I have been informed that “Rashk murders someone” is not a real spoiler re: volume 2. I apologize and offer this as a replacement spoiler.

Something goes really terribly wrong between people who are married to each other!

Like, five different times! Maybe six!

quantumpsychiatrist asked:
My substitute physics teacher caught me writing Glory in the Thunder poetry during class today, but I managed to get out of trouble by talking about your DEF CON presentation. I just thought you might want to know that :P

Well, are you going to share?! :) 

I like to think I’m living some sort of double life. Professional hacker by day, mild-mannered writer by night. Saving the internet and crafting the delicate fictional feelings of Sad Teens.

Glory in the Thunder is now a free-to-read novel.

Read Book One in its entirety online: Front Matter / Chapter One

Obtain Kindle, ePub or PDF: Download

Buy paperback or Kindle (optional, supports the author): Buy

The new scene (which has been moved from Book 2 to Book 1 based on reader feedback) can be found as the third section of Chapter 17, starting at “Rashk had once, long ago…”. It is in the newly uploaded versions of everything including the paperback. Note it’s a flashback scene (year 834, not year 836).

Here’s hoping all the chapter-to-HTML-page conversions are correct. Pretty sure they are :)

This is an 8-bit chiptune I made for the remote town of Amam Ri. It gets more attention in Book 2. Whether we can get through a whole scene without killing anyone there is a different question.

Open-access version of Book 1 should be up tomorrow or Monday. The downloads of the entire book will be available in three formats and it will be available as HTML pages on this site.

It’s my birthday, and Best Friend Forever Until The End of the World Jaiden made me a GiTT fan game with some three-color NES sprites I made a long time ago.

It’s apparently about Barsamin mass-murdering Katarosi. https://mispy.me/hacks/barsamin/

It’s bad enough that no-one is certain whether the ‘g’ is hard or silent, now this!
