A new chapter of my story ‘Hel is a Four Letter Word’ is up. New chapter every two weeks if you’re interested
The first chapter of my new story, “Hel is a Four Letter Word” is up for your reading pleasure.
It’s a direct sequel to ‘House of Discordia’ but can be read as a stand-alone.
So if you like polytheistic neo-noir detective stories, you’ll probably like it 🤷🏻♂️

I've been thinking about Q2 today and wonder if this is the time we can demand a return to the original FTTH NBN plan. I see a lot of libraries say they needed to reopen to provide basic internet access, but that is just a bandaid solution. The local gov area I work for is one of the poorest metro areas in terms of internet access #reset
A writer with weird ideas and a polytheism fixation. My alter ego lives in the library working with tech.
For a librarian, business /is/ pleasure.
