My second video game is now available (for free!)

Hi everyone!

My second video game, "Home: A Quarantine Story", is available for free today on Steam. It's a short game about a young woman from an extremely traditional family who visits home for the first time in years--and accidentally infects them with COVID-19. The game breaks from my published writing (and video games in general) because it's very close to pure realism, essentially an attempt Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Kyle Muntz  (?)

“I wish to try my hand at a novel," he said. "Just scribbling, I assure you, but it strikes me as such a noble art, requiring none of the monetary resources of opera or drama, nor the erudition of poetry. Perchance a publisher could be found. I'd be satisfied by the printing of even a score of copies, if only to hold the bound work in my hands. It gives a unique satisfaction, I assume, the writing of a novel.”
Kyle Muntz, VII

“The life of an artist is not so romantic as some might suppose.”
Kyle Muntz, VII

“It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button. ”
John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar

“What disturbs and depresses young people is the hunt for happiness on the firm assumption that it must be met with in life. From this arises constantly deluded hope and so also dissatisfaction. Deceptive images of a vague happiness hover before us in our dreams, and we search in vain for their original. Much would have been gained if, through timely advice and instruction, young people could have had eradicated from their minds the erroneous notion that the world has a great deal to offer them.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

“Poetry began in the matriarchal age, and derives its magic from the moon, not from the sun. No poet can hope to understand the nature of poetry unless he has had a vision of the Naked King crucified to the lopped oak, and watched the dancers, red-eyed from the acrid smoke of the sacrificial fires, stamping out the measure of the dance, their bodies bent uncouthly forward, with a monotonous chant of "Kill! kill! kill!" and "Blood! blood! blood!”
Robert Graves, The White Goddess: A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth

“What is literature, and why do I try to write about it? I don’t know. Likewise, I don’t know why I go on living, most of the time. But this not knowing is precisely what I want to preserve. As readers, the closest way we can engage with a literary work is to protect its indeterminacy; to return ourselves and it to a place that precludes complete recognition. Really, when I’m reading, all I want is to stand amazed in front of an unknown object at odds with the world.”
M. John Harrison

“What's one more meaningless act of violence on that zoo of a planet?
It would be appropriate.
When in Rome; burn it.”
Iain M. Banks, The State of the Art
