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:  Buy Echo

If you want to read the plot synopsis, it’s a few lines down, four paragraphs to be exact.  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:  The Filthy 108

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.

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!  Best way to reach me is by DMing me on Facebook.  However, I have noticed some DMs getting filtered out by Facebook messenger, so if I don’t respond, just comment on my wall.  I’ll take it down, DM you, and address your concerns.  Sorry to all those who never got a response; I wasn’t trying to be rude!  🙂

  1. So glad to meet you on WordPress. I am so inconsistent, aspiring to be a regular blogger. I am rewriting my first book which takes up all my time and working full-time. Not ideal. But thanks for the interest.

    • I know it sounds callous, but at this point it’s not a concern. I’ve wanted to take my own life before, and I’ve also reveled in the experience of living. Nowadays, I just try to enjoy whatever’s in front of me as much as I can, be it “bad” or “good.” If there’s an underlying benevolence to all of existence, then whatever’s in front of me was placed there for a good reason. 🙂

  2. Thanks for liking my stuff from time to time Kent. I hope you’re writing has been free-flowing and that you’re finding your voice in every new chapter you do!

  3. Hey!

    Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for following, and for reading my posts. I’ve been reading your free sample of Echo, and really enjoying it. I think I’ll pick up the book when I’m done.

    Also, based on your depiction of “crew selection” training, I’ve got a good idea which branch of the service you were in. I’m a vet too, and also place a high value on privacy, so I’ll keep your secret. 🙂

    Stay well!

    • Thanks bro! Yep, some of the military is definitely more cannibalistic than the rest. But by and large they’re all awesome; I just made Crew Selection into the absolute worst I’d seen and amplified it by orders of magnitude. Echo 1 is more first attempt at fiction and bears all the hallmarks of my noobery, so I apologize in advance for the “flow” mistakes.
