• This is the only story of mine whose moral I know. I don’t think it’s a marvelous moral; I simply happen to know what it is: We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. Kurt Vonnegut

  • Unsettled Time
    We are living in unsettled time. Wp Rnpt has ended the time between time, the Days Upon the Year in which time is upended and unordered, but time is still not aligned fully. We have space in which action exists, in which we can uphold the world, set ma’at in its place, the leverage to […]
  • Just a quick note
    I’ve updated my bio page with a link to Les Cabinets Des Polytheistes, where my story “Spine of the World” is published (and in which people can play Spot The Netjer if they are so inclined), and my less-specific webspace Suns in Her Branches, which is broader than this space (which is specifically for reconstructionist-derived […]

  • On Falling in Love
    For a long time, whenever I wanted to talk about the experience of conversion when I found Kemeticism, I talked about falling in love. It wasn’t just “Oh, this religious concept works for me,” it was a passionate thing, an […]

    I am eight. I have been given a subscription to the magazine Sky & Telescope as part of our preparation for Halley’s Comet, and I read through it, earnestly trying to make sense of the articles, studying the pictures. I […]
  • Hills of the Horizon: The Past is Another Country
    The problem with extrapolation from history is that nothing is testable. The evolution of a religion over time is not a predictable and easily comprehensible thing, where we can look at a point in time and say, "It was like this then, so it would be like that now." The process of deciding what needs […]

A Big Announcement!

I am happy to announce that my short story, “Delayed Exchange Deferred”, will be appearing in The Death of All Things, an anthology put out by Zombies Need Brains. (That link currently goes to a page describing the anthology, as it happens, including some of the bigger names originally part of the collection.)

“Delayed Exchange Deferred” is a story about playing chess with Death, but I would wager it is not the story that most people would expect from that one-line summary.

I sort of want to write about the story, where it came from, why I had to write it, but I think I want to let it speak for itself for a little while, and maybe someday someone will ask me and I’ll be able to do it. It’s a political story, and a story about family, and … and.

Anyway, the book can be pre-ordered here.

I dunno, I’m out of words, so here, have a couple of recordings of “Down Among The Dead Men”.
