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 4.

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)

  2. Thanks for following my blog. My venues are mil-sci-fi and fantasy, more speculative than anything else, and mostly just having some fun while I’m at it. I love inventing impossible weapons and poking pomposity. And keeping people guessing.

    • Thank You Back! I’m a big fan of all you’ve mentioned. Warren Ellis is one of my favorite comic authors, and when I need to tap the aforementioned fields, I find myself coming back to his work. 🙂

    • Thank You Back! Like I warn everyone who starts Echo: It’s my first attempt at fiction, it contains a lot of noob mistakes, and it’s pretty dark. That being said, thank you for the kind words and interest! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Thank You So Much! Echo is pretty dark, and my first attempt at fiction, and honestly I can’t stand reading volume 1 anymore because I want to go back and rewrite the whole thing, but it was definitely the best I could do at the time. Thank you for the interest! 🙂

    • Thank You Back! I’ll tell you what I tell everyone: Apologies in advance as it’s my first work of fiction and has noob mistakes, it’s dark, and it ends on a cliffhanger. Hopefully it’ll still entertain. Thank You!!! 🙂

    • Thank You So Much! And forewarning: Echo 1 is my first attempt at fiction, and filled with noob mistakes. It’s fairly dark and ends on a cliffhanger. That being said, your interest means the world to a budding indie author like me! Thank You! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. Hey there!
    I have added Echo to my read list, it sounds like the sort of thing I’m looking for.
    I was also wondering, do you do the cover art yourself? It’s pretty good 🙂

  4. Thanks for the follow. Was attempting cultural cohesion and religious tolerance in ‘What If I Go?’ ebook with Solstice Publishing, out end of month. Its a headsup for students to avoid gang controlling and a coming-of-age girl’s quest for love. Its great to think BIG! I’m a newbie too!
