Beneath the waves swam an invisible intelligence, a personality, female usually. The Dragon Princess was coming back. Waves of delight crested in terror. The Umiyoku had warned of her wrath.
From LIGHT, my new novel, coming soon.

An unfamiliar shore

You have arrived at my website. Have a scroll along the beach and you'll find an assortment of words, music, magic and graphics, tangled in themes of awakening, evolution and gifts within shadows.

Familiar shores fade like mist on the horizon. New myths bridge from old paradigms to new prehistory——mostly by examining the fading.

It's a diverse place, the midst of change. Illlusions abound by night. The sand reveals tracks of unknown creatures in the morning.

And footsteps——our own or someone else's? Some go around in circles. Others stop at the sea, as if someone had stood there, waiting for a boat.

An AI, a virus, a prophecy.
A cryptic novel for the post-truth era

Haunted by a dream of a mystery woman, burned-out contractor Adam Walker joins an obscure government department overseeing a new system managed by AI.

When a message hidden in a junk email possesses his imagination, Walker enters a labyrinth of coincidence and hidden meaning

Summoned Upstairs, intergovernmental mandarin Akbal reveals the real reason for Walker’s hire. Like his predecessor, Mu, he has the illlness [sic], a virus transmitted by words.

Attacking the temporal lobes, it alters human identity. Subjects become invisible to the AI. Mu has gone dark. Walker must find him before he broadcasts a sequence of words, triggering a pandemic.

Light refers to spirituality on the one hand, and digital intelligence on the other.

Set in London and Tokyo, LIGHT is a rollercoaster dive into human identity.

The Karma of Calculus
November 15, 2023

Behind non-partisan spirituality, esoteric arguments abound—often with reference to the Law of Karma, which may be understood as the Law of Consequence, or Newton's Law: every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

The Predator from the Depths of the Cosmos
November 13, 2023

The title comes from Carlos Castaneda’s last book, The Active Side of Infinity (1998). In Chapter 16, Don Juan, the shaman, takes Castaneda, the apprentice, into the Sonoran chaparral to discuss “the topic of topics.”

Demonic Circuits
November 8, 2023

A grand experiment is being conducted in Gaza. It seeks to discover how far that instinctive human response to harm being done to innocents can be suppressed or overridden by conditioning.

Silence is Compliance
November 5, 2023

I wrote my earlier piece, The Spiritual Response, after a discussion about whether taking up arms—the keyboard—online is an appropriate or useful response to what is happening in Gaza. I find myself oscillating between resignation and the urge to respond.

Ghirl In The SheIII

An ode to the classic anime of 1995, Ghost in the Shell. Three decades on, its far-out vision of spirits in the ethernet seems more prescient than ever.

This is a transgenic shape-shifter of an album. Tech-bangra breaks, arp-driven pop-dance, ghostly italo and viral vocodals recombine in infectious variants. Side effects include involuntary body movement and euphoria. Listen at your own risk.
