Red Pill Religion

Last night I had the pleasure of joining Dragon Award-nominated author Declan Finn and the Red Pill Religion crew for a discussion of human spirituality in science fiction. We also digressed onto the issue of indie pub marketing.

This is the second time I've joined host Dean Esmay for a chat about the theological dimension of popular fiction, and this experience was as rewarding as the first. I encourage you to give it a listen.


In other indie publishing news, it's heartening to see the overwhelmingly positive response to #AGundamForUs. I've received credible reports that the Western mecha renewal initiative has taken on a life of its own and has been embraced by rising literary movements. Pulp Revolution Author Rawle Nyanzi has even issued a challenge for writers to release their own #AGundamForUs books by December 31st.

The more the merrier. Bring your best giant robot story and get involved.

Yours truly is hard at work on a #GundamNotGundam novel series that's been brewing almost as long as the Dragon Award-winning Soul Cycle. Look for the first volume well in advance of Rawle's New Year's Eve deadline.

In the meantime, there's a complete and thrilling Soul Cycle series to keep you entertained.

  1. Speaking as a reader, I do wonder if there would be a market for a mecha short fiction anthology. Has there ever been one? I would certainly be interested in picking one up.

    1. Would A Fistful of Credits qualify?

    2. It looks close to it! I haven't yet gotten into this series so I couldn't say for sure. I've heard quite a lot of good things about it though.

    Must be one of those fancy discord things, since I don't see it on his site, or twitter.

    It's still a good goal. Granted the story I'm hashing out isn't gundamish. Well maybe if we go by the "every mecha is a gundam" meme.

  3. Don't forget the comic book readers, gents. Great stories can make for great pictures.

    1. Oh, we haven't forgotten. It's more a matter of artists costing a LOT.

      Someday, though...
