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. Thanks, Kent, for liking my post! Much appreciated, in this world of so many random electrons floating around that it’s hard to gain the attention of one. Your storyline is intriguing. I’m going to come back and check out the sample chapters this weekend. Right now, it’s writin’ time!

  2. The descriptions of the books…they’re amazing. But I think the Filthy 108 is something different and a must read…Hoping to find the book soon…And thanks, for liking my first post on WordPress…It helps amateur writers like me to write when we know that somebody out there is ready to read us!

    • Hey Ann I’m flattered, but due to my time commitments, I’ve stopped following protocol for these awards. If there’s anything specific you want to know about me, though, drop a comment and I’ll throw you an answer! 🙂

      • Yeah. I totally understand! It took me more than a day to answer the questions, post it and notify everyone, in addition to all the other daily commitments life brings 😖 Who knows, maybe one of my questions will inspire one of your musings 😜 Thanks for letting me know what’s up! Have a good one!

  3. Hey Kent! Do you have a contact email by any chance? Either that or I’m blind and I can’t find one lol. I wanted to ask some more questions for my ‘Ask The Blogger’ blog series and would love to feature you again! Thanks!! Milly

  5. Thanks for liking my overly emotion, thrown together poem Here I Am lol. I didnt think it’d catch anyone’s attention. Ive been barely getting back to writing and just decided to post it on my rarely used blog.

    Echo seems intruging. I’m going to come back to read the sample chapters. And I do believe it is important to keep works we did a while ago, it shows us and our readers where we were at.

    Thanks again! 🙂

    • Thank you back, Miss Mommy! And no worries on the over-emotionization; last year I went back and revamped Echo 1 and 2 because I couldn’t get over my over-description. Couldn’t get it all out, but we evolve as writers, so I imagine if I kept trying to get it perfect, I’d drive myself crazy. 🙂


  6. Thanks Kent, for liking my post! I am just starting out with my first book being published back in February and I find the writing way easier than getting noticed! HAHA. Its nice to be noticed by another writer. Your artwork above is awesome and grabbed my attention right away. Your plot sounds great and love the sense of humor! Have to admit I don’t read a lot of SciFi, however, I am intrigued by your outline and will grab a copy to read. Thank you!

    • Thank you back, J.A! Yeah, advertising and logistics, is, unfortunately, way harder than the actual writing part of indie authordom. As far as my stuff being sci fi, I try to make my see past the “cool” sci fi stuff and illustrate human nature as best as possible. Without a strong representation of human nature, I don’t think any genre really rings true. And with something far out like sci fi or fantasy, it’s even more important, because the setting is already stretching the bounds of believability. Thanks for the kind words, and the interest! 🙂


    • Awesome—I’m flattered!! I used to play AD&D 2nd edition when I was a kid. Can’t believe my parents let me spend that much money on handbooks and dice, LOL! Apologies for the noob mistakes in the earlier stages of my stuff; it gets better if you stick with it. 🙂

  7. Thank you for the likes. They mean a lot to me since I am real new to this blogging thing. Finding writing blogs which captivate me is not easy so I look up the blogs of people who liked my stuff. They must have good taste. Hah. Anyhow, your blog looks like one I need do delve into soon. Thanks again and have a nice day.

    • I can’t remember too well…I think I had to create a link in paypal, which gave me some html code I could plug into wordpress. Google “donate button wordpress” and I’m pretty sure you can find some walk-throughs.


  8. Howdy! Just stopping by to thank you for the “like” on my Ditch the Niche post. I will admit that I’m not typically a reader of sci-fi, but your titles have me absolutely intrigued! I’ll be checking out Echo Volume 1: Approaching Shatter. I mean, how did that come about? I need to know. (Also…you had me chuckling in appreciation a couple of times!)
