I am currently at work on several writing projects.

First, I am now actively revisiting and reworking a novella I wrote many years ago, titled "Crossroads". No further project status is available at this time.

Second, I am also actively reworking and preparing to rewrite "The Darkness and the Stars", volume two of "The Macrocosm" series, of which "The Unearthing" is volume one.

"Oh Well, Whatever, Nevermind" is currently being read and reviewed, and once this process is complete, I will begin the final rewrite before marketing the book to prospective publishers. Concurrently, I have also started compiling a list of publishers to whom the work will be marketed.

I am writing, slowly but steadily, two other works: the third volume of "The Macrocosm" and a non-sci-fi one-off novel which due to the early stages of the work, I will not discuss in further detail. More information will be posted as it becomes available, so long as that information does not compromise any of the work.

Lastly and perhaps most importantly, I am conducting research in order to turn the two-part essay, "The Perverse Society" into a book-length, non-fiction work, which will examine in detail exactly how our society has enslaved us, and offer proposed solutions to the problem. I expect the book to take years to complete.

I think the reasons for me to work on this project should be self-evident. As someone recently told me, the problem with rocking the boat, is no one wants to do it when they're actually still in the boat. I've been out of the boat and treading water not since December, when Computershare decided to terminate my employment because I wasn't happy enough for them, but since Bell decided to lay me off so its now-former CEO Michael Sabia, of 72 Sunnyside, Westmount, QC decided to lay off 4000 underlings for the sake of a 555% pay rise.

The goal of this last writing project is simple: to wake people the fuck up to the world that has been pulled over their eyes, and help those who are ready to free themselves to live the lives they want, and to possibly help free others. I have no real hope of success, simply because I know what sort of juggernaut I am up against. Ultimately, my own enlightened self interest will determine the status of this project. However, most of the essays I intend on writing for this book will probably make their way here.
