New story's up!

Menander

Featuring a butler sexbot named Oppie, and a tragic science person named Menander (based on this guy, starring Sam Neill because THEY MUST ALL HAVE ACTORS). Is it gauche to say I really like this one?! It has a narrative arc! And an ending and everything! AN ENDING, PEOPLE. IT ENDS.

Anyway, this is an origin story in the "Dropverse" - i.e. the verse where this and thi... Read more of this blog post »

Yeah? Well, this is just, like, my opinion, man. But DAMNNN was this an excruciating read for me. This was excruciating on several dimensions of torment; this was like a Dante's Inferno style read, where there were multiple rings of pain that I had t ...more

“The need to call this thing “good” and this thing “bad,” this thing “white” and this thing “black,” was an impulse that Effia did not understand. In her village, everything was everything. Everything bore the weight of everything else.”
