A kind of milestone

One thousand blog-posts. That’s quite a milestone, really. Not quite there yet: this one’s number nine hundred and ninety-nine, to be precise. Though out of those so far, there were the hundred or so in the Twitter-extracts series – ‘A week in Tweets’

Publishing Tetradian e-books via Leanpub

I have at last found a viable workflow to produce e-books of my various books and blogposts, via Leanpub. There’s one significant constraint in this form of publishing: Leanpub uses Markdown text-files for input, which is a fair bit more limited in its formatting than my books normally use. But that constraint fits well with the […]

Work-in-progress – two more books

Yabbies story-fragment: ‘Mishie’

Most of the Yabbies novel is made up of story-fragments that in principle could come together in any sequence: we make sense of them in whatever way we choose.
What follows is perhaps my favourite story-fragment, “Mishie’. (A gentle reminder that it’s fiction? ) A bit of context first, though. The fragment takes place perhaps […]

Yabbies – a novel

Happy to announce that I’ve at last gotten round to publishing my sort-of-novel Yabbies. Hooray!
(I perhaps ought to say ‘completed and published’, but as you’ll see, ‘completing’ isn’t quite the right word, since much of the content is made up of story-fragments that could be assembled in just about any order.)
At present you […]
