Friends, it looks like I made the lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng list for this year's Not the Booker Prize. That's right, I was pre-nominated for possible inclusion in a shorter long-list for those not nominated for a prestigious literary award. Glory is dripping off me. Now, I'm not one of those authors who harangues his friends and followers to vote for him in stuff. But if you enjoyed Hunters & Col... Read more of this blog post »

Hunters & Collectors by M. Suddain
"What a journey. It starts with a contemptible restaurant critic and follows a logical path that leads to increasingly extreme situations. It remains funny throughout and does get a bit blood-bathy, then cleans up all the blood with a lovely 'big i..." Read more of this review »

“God, how I hate the future. It’s a cult. A tyranny of progress. And anyone who speaks against it is shunned. But all tyrannies must efficiently erase the past if they’re to work. I like the past. The past was solid, simple, and real. The rooms were large, the food was good, and we knew who our enemies were. I feel misty for old tyrannies. The ones which beat you, enslaved you, tried to break your spirit, and in doing so gave your life the only enhancement it really needs: a sense of purpose. The tyranny of the future doesn’t take away our choices; it swamps us in them. It doesn’t curb our freedoms; it tube-feeds us with them until we rupture like neglected factory geese.”
Matt Suddain, Hunters & Collectors

“To recover frail embers from the flames of history, and to carry them, carefully, to the fires of our own age, so that we might have some grasp of the grand sweep of time, and also a sense that, though our lives are brief sparks, each has its moment within the epic story of human existence.”
Matt Suddain, Theatre of the Gods

“There are many universes, perhaps an infinite number; that each contains, and is contained within every other; and that all of them sing together like voices in a choir. It is a beautiful thing - a song of infinite harmony.”
Matt Suddain, Theatre of the Gods

“Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Our life has no end in the way in which our visual field has no limits.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
