C.R. Dudley

Goodreads Author




Member Since
April 2012


C.R Dudley is a visual artist, writer and self-proclaimed mind explorer. She is fascinated by the human condition in all of its guises, and has been heavily influenced by Jungian psychology, existentialism and eastern mysticism.

Often writing from unusual perspectives, she weaves together esoteric philosophies with modern scientific and technological developments to give a many-layered approach to storytelling.

Her first novel is planned for release in 2018, but she also continues to write short fiction daily to give voice to smaller creative echoes. She sees everything she creates as fragments of one continuous artwork.

C.R. Dudley lives in York, UK, and is a lover of forest walks, pizza, tequila and dark music.

Dragon's Egg by Robert L. Forward
"Classic Hardcore Hard-SF. :)

Really hardcore, even, written by an astrophysicist and wild with the worldbuilding. :) It's the concept that shines. Think about the extended growth of a people from hunters and gatherers all the way to a massively acc..." Read more of this review »
Fragments of Perception and Other Stories by C.R.  Dudley
"Aldous Huxley came to mind when I read the word perception in the title of this collection of 36 short stories, described as ‘mind-bending’ in the author’s blurb. Perhaps hinted at by the psychedelic eye which adorns the front cover of C R Dudley’..." Read more of this review »

“If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.”

Gautama Buddha
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
Gautama Buddha

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Человек, умеющий обнимать - хороший человек

(A person who likes hugging - that's a good person)”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Jordan B. Peterson
“Anomalies manifest themselves on the border between chaos and order, so to speak, and have a threatening and promising aspect. The promising aspect dominates, when the contact is voluntary, when the exploring agent is up-to-date – when the individual has explored all previous anomalies, released the “information” they contained, and built a strong personality and steady “world” from that information.

The threatening aspect dominates, when the contact is involuntary, when the exploring agent is not up-to-date – when the individual has run away from evidence of his previous errors, failed to extract the information “lurking behind” his mistakes, weakened his personality, and destabilised his “world.”

The phenomenon of interest – that precursor to exploratory behaviour – signals the presence of a potentially “beneficial” anomaly. Interest manifests itself where an assimilable but novel phenomenon exists: where something new “hides,” in a partially comprehensible form. Devout adherence to the dictates of interest – assuming a suitably disciplined character – therefore insures stabilisation and renewal of personality and world.

Interest is a spirit beckoning from the unknown – a spirit calling from outside the “walls” of society. Pursuit of individual interest means hearkening to this spirit’s call – means journeying outside the protective walls of childhood dependence and adolescent group identification; means also return to and rejuvenation of society.

This means that pursuit of individual interest – development of true individuality – is equivalent to identification with the hero. Such identification renders the world bearable, despite its tragedies – and reduces unnecessary suffering, which most effectively destroys, to an absolute minimum.

This is the message that everyone wants to hear. Risk your security. Face the unknown. Quit lying to yourself, and do what your heart truly tells you to do. You will be better for it, and so will the world.”
Jordan B. Peterson, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief
