As I don't have a website yet and use Livejournal for a lot of various things, I'll add my bibliography here. When I can afford a website, I will simply move this there. Right now, all of them are available on the Kindle, the Nook, and Smashwords in a variety of formats.

Copper got cancelled about a month ago. I wrote a protest letter and so far have forgotten to send it because I'm so busy. Now that I've remembered, this is the transcription:

Disturbing, horrifying, bizarre as hell deep sea creatures. If you WANT nightmares, go look at them, I mean, I don't like sleep, who needs to sleep normally and relax...

Why do fish look like they live in Hell?

Thinking about food typically makes me almost sick to my stomach and honestly, stories like this about someone hanging on to the edge, don't help that feeling in the slightest. But I think it's important that I realise just how dark things can get. I'm much, much closer to having this happen than anything 'good', and I always will be, and I can't let myself forget.

Yes, the US is archiving the outside of your mail... including your name, your address, the receiver... and you can top if off with that, with a warrant (like those matter anymore) they can open your fucking mail. Welcome to the USSA.

Are you hiding anything? Well, you can't. There's nowhere to hide.

Somebody on RPGnet posted, in honor of the Voting Rights Act, a Louisiana "literary" test. Holy Fuck this is sadistic. It's more like a puzzle book.

Cripes, I am paranoid. Put "receiving" with "national security" and it brings to mind apocalyptic marks of beasties and things of that sort. It's a pretty quick leap of thought but that's where I specialize, I think!

That said, this is something real, the founder of the Internet Archive describes what it was like to get a national security letter and challenge the govt about it. It's creepy as hell: the guy can't tell his family about it, because he can't tell anybody about it, evar.

It doesn't sound anything like the US when we used to be the good guys. This kind of secrecy and distrust doesn't fade in a moment, either. It stays and roams around and, if it's accepted to enough of an extent for a long enough time, becomes another tradition that doesn't change.

I can't say I view that as a good thing, but the people who come up with it aren't psychopathic killers, either, at least for the most part. They're just human, like the rest of us.

Minnesota has brain eating amoebas floating around the Great Lakes. Let me say that again, brain eating amoebas. This is completely gross, deeply fascinating and just disgusting. TASTY BRAINZ NO YES.

It's a good insight into the conditions of people on the run. I write about people in their condition a lot and it's always much worse than I can imagine. No trust, no sleep, anyone might betray you in a flash.

It also gives me a horrible view into how sexist and vile the world really is. I don't have a problem with strong, opinionated, tough women, but lots and lots of people do. I'm glad I'm this way but it twists my guts at the sickness of most of humanity.
