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)

  1. Hey Dirty Sci Fi Buddha – thank you for following my page. How nice to see this blend of science fiction, Eastern Philosophy and comedy, Seems a strange brew at first glance and then you remember that Buddhism is a very pro-humour and pro-science philosophy… so I’m looking forward to having a nose through your work.

    • Thank You Back Ligia! I tried to encapsulate the theme of my stories in the covers…but my artists probably hate me for being an annoying art director. I make sure I tip ’em extra lol

    • Thank You Back Wynn! While I can’t take the credit for the illustration, I CAN take credit for the concepts as well as being a really annoying art director to my artists, LOL! (I do tip them extra because of this haha)

    • Well the buddha-bro was kind of a first fumbling attempt at writing and I’m the first to admit that it sucks. Echo does blend east and west as well, but not so overtly. Yep—definitely fun stuffing mystical themes into a world full of cyborg killers lol!

  5. First, congratulations on your books getting published, wish you luck and health for 4th volume you’re working on. All of your books look interesting. Look forward to read. Also, everyone is an amateur at some point if time in writing or their field of interest. The fun lies in learning and exploring our potential; transitioning from pathetic to pro…lol…

    Thanks for following my blog.

    • Thank You So Much Ricky!!! Indeed—I’m really just getting a kick out of entertaining people and interacting with ’em. Stressing about whether or not I’m successful is just that—stress. Unnecessary and counterproductive. Having fun and sharing with others is the important part! 🙂

  6. I am excited to follow your blog!
    More importantly, congratulations and cannot wait to discover your books.

    I just started recording my RPG paper and pencil adventures into short stories and hopefully I will get as inspired as you. I haven’t really get into sci-fi so I think your book will be a good start 🙂

    Thank you for following my blog and welcome to Tamriel haha

    See you soon

    • Well fair warning: Echo #1 is full of my noob mistakes, #2 is a battle that happens in a single day, and #3 is where I get into magical weirdness. If those don’t turn you off, then have at ’em! Good luck with your blogging adventures, Sangeprairie! 🙂

  7. Thank you very much for the follow. I’ve only been blogging on here a month and a half, and so far it’s been an interesting journey in trying to explore myself through writing. Thank you for your interest in my blog and your encouragement to those who have written comments here. I normally don’t read sci-fi, but I may have to give your blog a follow.

    • Thank You sgshop peoples! Fair warning: Echo #1 is filled with my noob mistakes, #2 is all in one day and a lotta pkew pkew, and #3 goes into magical weirdness. If any of that appeals to you, then have at it! 🙂

  8. Nice concept. Religion or made up religion always stirs the heart. Culture comes second. Culture and religion were in Greg Bear’s Queen of Angels, which was a memorable read.

    • Indeed. Operating systems such as religion tend to make people emotionally very invested, but without accounting for modern context, these systems can become dangerous and counterproductive. To follow any of the holy texts in a literal sense would cause a lot of problems to any society

    • Thank You Back Oscar! What a great pic! I wanted to get a beagle when I was married, but my wife at the time said they made too much noise. However, I love their squat little forms and their dome heads LOL!
