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!  🙂

  2. I do believe all of the ideas you’ve presented for
    your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies. May
    you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.

  3. It’s great to meet you and thanks for reading my posts. I am a big fan of dystopian/sci fi fantasy and I am blown away by your imagination. Also, I like your Facebook posts – really motivational. Quick question – How do I begin to read Echo – chapter 1 here on the site? Is the book the same? The glossary so I understand the characters and the world you have built? What’s the best approach for a new reader? Thanks Kent.

  4. Kent, Your line: “enjoyed noting the layered, subtle connections that ran through the world” is true for worlds both in and out of imagination. I’ve written my first dystopia short story: “Slip”. I feel it wants to grow but I’m new to this and I don’t know yet how. Perhaps you would do me the kindness of reading it. I will be back to Echo soon. Thanks.

  5. 1796 is quite a following! Congratulations on your success, I marvel at your remark that you are new to this and appreciate even the idea that you have time for checking out what others are doing. I’ve been a reading advocate all my life and started writing as soon as I learned that all those funny parts of the pictures were letters that just might lead somewhere. My writing is mostly spiritual, first book And There Was War in Heaven, second, From Faith to Faith, and I took a break and wrote a Novelette that is a love story, To Those Who Would Love, They are each shown under Published on my blog, and I would love for you to read all are any of them.
    I don’t like to read some things that stay in my mind, but I do enjoy reading things about the universe that we wonder about. Thanks for stopping by, and when you have time give me a critique.

  6. Hey thanks for liking my latest book review “Language Saves Lives” about the Turkish novel “Last Train to Istanbul”. I’d appreciate hearing tips from an experienced blogger about my blog!

  7. Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and like my work. I thought it was sincere and considerate of you so I figured I’d return the kind gesture. I am so proud and most importantly grateful to have someone like you (an accomplished author) take a liking to a piece of my work especially since it’s about 5 years old and I have so many more as well as new pieces that I definitely needed the inspiration which I thankfully have now so kudos to you for being my first form of support on here! I read your page as well and I am going to become an avid follower! Which of your books would you recommend I read first? Again, many thanks to you!

  8. Hey! You’ve been popping up and liking quite a few of my little stories and whatnot over the months, and I have been checking out your stuff as well, but I wanted to come over here and just say that I am somewhat in awe of your ability to just vomit up thing after thing, whether it is for promoting your books, Musings, etc etc. I wish I had that sort of motivation. I am just buying your Echo books on amazon now, planning to dive into them after I finish whatever it is I am reading now and then drop a review.

    • Hey thanks! It’s honestly just for me and relieving some of the mental pressure from day-to-day life. A super awesome bonus is that people like it sometimes.😅 And thanks much for trying out Echo! If you can make it past the first one, I promise the writing gets smoother, and in 3 and 4, I really dive deep into the magical/philosophical aspect of the world.

  10. I’m new to WordPress and I’m not really a writer but I do my best and try to think of things that others might like. For the most part I’m on here for me as a way of getting away and help with the stress of life, and to meet others like yourself and to maybe make new friends as I can. I hope you may enjoy anything of mine you might take the time to read and I hope to enjoy many of yours.

  11. I did download sample of Agony book, and in hopes of purchasing! Just keep forgetting when I get so distracted. I am excited to read full version. How long have you been publishing books? I’m so glad you do!

  12. Hey Buddha,
    I’m new to blog writing. You were one my first follows and first followers (which I super appreciate, and besides, your stuff is great XD). I’ve seen a fall-off in gathering new followers and views and I was wondering: how did you hear about me? How do I attract more attention and get the word out there?
    I’d love your advice. Thanks!

    • I periodically check my reader for certain tags, and I try and pay attention to new writers. I’d say establish a blogging schedule that is at least one post a day, more if you can manage it. WordPress has a scheduling option where you don’t have to publish immediately, so what I do is schedule 3 blog posts before work. Hope that helps!

      • Rather than tasks, if time is tight, I like to budget time. So you could do 15 minutes for a post, and if it’s not complete, you could pick it up the next 15-minute period. That might help with time budgeting.
