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!  🙂

      • Noobie? For a noobie, I’d say that was a damn good story. I’ve read to the first four chapters, and so far I find the story very engaging; and as a noobie writer (that short story I posted, that was my first creative writing in years!), whatever novice mistakes present in your work eluded me. 🙂

      • Hahaha! Thanks man! All I see is mistakes; the key I think is not to get emotional about them, and at a certain point, after I’ve done all I can think of to do, move on to bigger and better stuff.

  1. Hey, thanks for following my blog! I will definitely be checking out what you’ve written. I’ve loved scfi since a very young age, and can never seem to get enough. Hopefully this new year will see me finish up some of my own work.

  2. Wow, this is totally not my genre (I’m into romance-erotica) but I was blown away at how concise your writing is. What is your editing process like? Thanks for following me as well!

  3. Hi! I saw that you liked my lil’ intro blog post, thank you so much!
    I’m very intrigued by Echo, it’s been a while since I’ve taken a dive into some sci fi, this should be fun.
    As random as this sounds I’m going to kick you over to my brother’s book, Metal and Wheels, which can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Metal-Wheels-Richard-Vollmer-ebook/dp/B076GRJ3QJ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1520218445&sr=8-3&keywords=metal+and+wheels+book
    Check it out!

  4. Hi Kent!

    Thank you so much for liking a couple of my short stories. I read what Echo is about and I often find that summaries for books are poorly written. YOURS, however, looks amazingggg! Absolutely makes me want to read your books!!! If you have time, please follow my blog, I would really appreciate feedback from you on some of my stories!

    PS. I agree with the other who say you need a “like” button on your page! Lol!

    Happy writing!

    • Hey Thank You So Much Sharissa!!! Echo’s gone through a ton of revision; you’d probably have said it was garbage when I first put it out, LOL! I’ve got a budding developer/buddy working on the website issues, but yeah, I DO need a like button, haha!

  5. We don’t always post pictures of ourselves, and some even use fictitious names. If yours is Kent Wayne, then I’m thinking you may not be from Asia. I could be wrong, until I study you more…through your writings. Yet there were no dirty Buddha’s when I lived there. But thank goodness, women will be women where ever they are. Thanks for the like.

    • Nah, I can only take credit for the design, which I thought of and pestered my artists into revising until they got it right, LOL! All credit goes to Elsbro, Emilianohc, and Phanduy on fiverr. It was my pleasure to like your post! 🙂

    • I connect with my readers through humor and consistent engagement. That may not be the way that works for you, but it is of utmost importance to connect with your audience. As far as the ocean, I’m sure you could find a good one through a google search. Good luck! 🙂

    • Hey thank you so much John! I still make pennies on the hour with my writing, so I’ve got a ways to go. I think doing it for anything besides the love of writing/blogging can quickly drive you insane. Keep your head up and keep at it! 🙂

  6. Good to hear from you again. Unlike you, i have only managed one published book, Mysterious
    Builder of Seattle Landmarks, Searching for My Father. It’s picking up on Amazon, just sold 11 copies at a Barnes and Noble. but it keeps me chained to the computer. Two others languish in the closet. your productivity is impressive.

  7. Yes, and when you publish, people say “Now that’s done and you can get back to real life.” Then you learn that writing the book is just the beginning! Still, I’m old now and grateful that even though I’, slow, writing/publishing/marketing is warding off Alzheimers.

    • It’s definitely got health benefits; I get in the flow state whenever I start writing or editing, and they say that that has really good effects on immune system and brain function. 🙂

  8. One thing I especially would like to know is the story ‘The Boy and the Sea Dragon’ is ready for submission or not. I have the whole novel already written. I have not posted the whole novel yet. How can I get people to leave comments on my blog? I am waiting to read your echo series.

  9. Good for you! Religion that can’t laugh is missing part of its humanity. And people wander around in a meat suit. It doesn’t get any dirtier than that. I think God has to be laughing, possibly to keep from throwing up.

    • Hey thanks Sean! I’m a bit nervous about what you think, as Echo 1 is mostly setup and bears the marks of my noobery, but if you make it to Echo 2, you’ll get blood n guts, and if you make it to Echo 3, you’ll get magic and existentialism! 🙂
