Variations of Sanity (2009) FREE PDF

‘Variations of Sanity’, is my first attempt at writing after exploring the drug abuse of adolescence. If anything, it goes to show that as individuals working on our own crafts, we all have to start somewhere. So why not write about a whole bunch of crap until we develop ourselves more substantially.

These are insane rants and garbled nonsense. Products of insanity and madness. Hence the title ‘Variations of sanity’. I wrote this after a drug induced psychosis, these are products of a mentally ill mind with no coherent structure or suitable audience. They are rebellious, non-morally aligned writings that do not reflect my present state of mind or affiliations.

The Sky is Falling (2011) FREE PDF

‘The Sky is Falling’. My first attempt at a novel.  An interesting read… As long as your not a grammar nazi. My grammar isn’t that bad, I do know the difference between, ‘your’ and ‘you’re’. I wrote this using Microsoft word as my only writing resource. Which, by all accounts, is a good program. But it’s grammar checking software isn’t that great. And that green line gets so annoying. I could go back and correct these things, but I believe you can’t be caught up on the one project for eternity. Learn from your mistakes and move on. I now use Ginger grammar checking software as my second set of eyes while working my material.

The Sky is Falling follows a series of dysfunctional characters in a Utopian world.

Infinity Plus One (2012) FREE PDF

‘Infinity Plus One’ is a novelette that I wrote after finishing, ‘The Sky is Falling’. Interesting little piece. Short and very esoteric in meaning. May be difficult to follow any coherent storyline. But there is a storyline to be followed…

The plot follows the development of inner demons in a fantasy based or delusional style

Nuggets of shit (2016) FREE PDF

The first one hundred or so short stories from the website. All that glitters ain’t gold. The stories are a mix of everything. Something in there for everyone. Some are good, some are bad… Different people like different things so I’ve tried to cover the broad spectrum.
