The Ruins — a new flash fiction at the Caesura Letters

Cottage ruins, County Kerry, Ireland

I have a new flash fiction up this week at the Caesura Letters called The Ruins. It’s a different kind of piece — a meditation on the nature of Stoicism (though to be fair, it has a dash of existentialism in it.)

If you haven’t already checked out the Caesura Letters, you really should. It’s “a magazine for critical thinkers, mindful contemplatives, and life-long learners.” And it’s rich with philosophy. I’m grateful to the editor and founder, James Shelley, for including fiction in the mix now too. The digital subscription is only $4.99 a month — an insanely good deal.

My conversation with Robert Chazz Chute

Robert Chazz ChuteI’d encourage you all to check out the Cool People Podcast this week, in which the host (and fellow London, ON author) Robert Chazz Chute, and I discuss the singularity, technology, and monkey brains! (And yes, this means I’m officially “cool”.)

Robert Chazz Chute is the award-winning author of the bestselling serial, This Plague of Days, featuring an autistic boy facing down the end of the world in a dystopian future than could begin in real life at any moment. Plus zombies! (But not real zombies.) And possibly vampires! (But not real vampires.)

And if you’re in the Other London (The “For Rest” City), join the two of us to hear us read from our work, talk more complete shite, and even offer some tips on how to do the self-publishing thing.
