Dialectic of Agony

About

Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha is the website for me:  author Kent Wayne.  The site name comes from the subject material in my writing.

Three works are featured.  The first one is Echo, a science fiction dystopia.  I’ve posted some free sample chapters, click here to start reading.

To buy Echo Volume 1:  Approaching Shatter on Amazon click here:  Echo on Amazon.

If you want to read the plot synopsis, it’s a few lines down, fourth paragraph.  The second one is a lighthearted modern-day take on Batman if he wasn’t so Emo and Goth, titled The Rarefied Tightrope.  Click here for chapter 1:  The Rarefied Tightrope Chapter 1.

The third book is The Filthy 108:  Mystical Teachings of the Buddha-Bro. Available on Amazon.  Buy it here for only $1.08:http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TEHLL6M

It’s an eclectic mix of Buddhist and mysticism inspired wisdom.  Eclectic because it combines Eastern philosophy with dirty and disgusting humor.  I’ve recently realized (as of the middle of Volume 3) that the Filthy 108 was my first stumbling attempt at writing.  My views have changed since then (I’d like to think I’m not so bitter and hard-edged as when I wrote it, haha!) and it reflects a snapshot in time before I’d become more open and willing to embrace That It’s All Okay in the end.  I’ve left it up as a curio of sorts:  My first book in all its glorious error and eagerness.  I find it kind of embarrassing actually, and I can’t read it anymore.  But I think it’s important to be open about where we came from so I’ll leave it up.

The plot for Echo is as follows:  It has been over a thousand years since humanity has left Earth to settle off-world on Echo.  For almost that entire time, an age of darkness and oppression has ensued.  Military and police have merged into the Department of Enforcement.  Government and corporations have merged into the Regime.  Little progress has been made except in the area of weapons technology.  Echo’s only hope resides in one man, a bitter and crippled former Enforcer.  Before he can break the cycle of ignorance for Echo, he must first do it within himself.

Within the story, there will be giant robo-suits, swords, and something akin to the Force.  Currently drafting Volume 3.

For Buddhist and mysticism inspired wisdom follow the posts for The Filthy 108.  They alternate between jokes and insights.  Be warned; the jokes are nasty.  Hence the “filthy” portion of the title.

For updates about progress on Echo and reflections on writing, follow the posts under Echo-a Dystopian Science Fiction Novel.

To check out my concepts for Echo (no plot spoilers don’t worry) check out the page titled Echo:  Glossary of Concepts.  I became frustrated when I realized that it would be a little while before I had clean enough draft to publish for the public, but I wanted to express some of the garnishes and flourishes in my setting.  The Glossary of Concepts is a way for me to showpiece my ideas-without spoilers-so that my head doesn’t explode from them building up.

Thanks for your interest!  If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!

  1. Great site – how good is it to share your entertaining whimsy with so many? Speaking of which, if you have a moment spare, visit sensualism.me and you’ll see a little book of poetry, just published, waiting to find its way into the shopping cart of the many – a great gift for Christmas – ho, ho, ho…

  2. Hey, thanks for following Words by K. Alan. (@kalanleitchauthor). I’m just getting started, so I appreciate the support. I always admire the drive of someone who self-publishes; I haven’t really worked up the nerve, yet, to do anything but beg to TPTB.

  4. Interested to see where this goes… You have my attention sir🙂 Goodluck with the drafting & editing too. I know how it feels. I myself am trying to write a book (but writers block though…) Luckily my blog is more about my thoughts on life than my book, so I do at least still write. But I seem to have lost my mojo, right after I fleshed out my mythos… wierd. Maybe Im scared… Im digressing😮 Happy Writing😉

    • Happy Writing to you too! The way I get around writer’s block is examining the core themes of my story, then letting the “what-ifs” play through my head. Not sure if that’ll work for you…but nevertheless, I wish you the best of luck! 🙂🙂🙂

  6. Thank you for following my blog. Although that blog is about piano playing, I am in fact a fantasy writer and I have written some SF short stories too. So it was nice to bump into a science fiction writer all of a sudden. But there are no such things as random coincidences, you know!

  7. I love this wordpress site. Making the About page your landing page is slick. But… what if It Isn’t All Okay in the end? I mean… is it really All Good or is there some chance of a less than optimal outcome?
