Instant Classic (That No One Will Read) offers nine sardonic tales holding a carnival mirror to writers and stories. From a deal with the Devil to the ultimate AI vs human showdown, witness the terrifying spectacle of artists who’ll do anything to clamber out of the creative trenches alive.
Long-time readers will notice that there has been a slight change of title. This is apparently because you can’t use the term “bestseller” in a title on Amazon, as it makes the money sad. Nevertheless, I can guarantee that the stories are still amazing and you should definitely read it.

I’m absolutely stoked to announce that I’ll be speaking at the Nebula Conference on The Middle Path: Small-Press Publishing! This is a virtual panel (for various reasons I’m not going to go to Anaheim any time soon, and I am eternally grateful to the SFWA for having such amazingly accessible options) so you can attend from anywhere!

Surviving under late stage capitalism is hard, especially when you’re out of spoons and you’re lucky if you have a plastic knife. We’re here to help. The Sad Bastard Cookbook: Food You Can Make So You Don’t Die is a community-built, vegetarian/vegan guide to feeding your facehole when you’re suffering from depression. We’ve made the PDF free on the Night Beats website because life sucks enough without having to give Jeff Bezos money, but we also do have a paperback copy available for sale over there too, since we also need to eat.
Here’s my talk about how climate disaster, wizards, precognitives and Canadian politics come crashing together in my debut novel Cascade, which Peter Watts called a “near-perfect blend of implacable horror, gallows humor, and ecological apocalypse.”
Life is hard. Some days are at the absolute limit of what we can manage. Some days are worse than that. Eating—picking a meal, making it, putting it into your facehole—can feel like an insurmountable challenge. We wrote The Sad Bastard Cookbook to share our coping strategies.
The e-book will be free for everyone, because we believe that coping strategies should be as widely accessible as we can make them. But our newsletter subscribers will get access a month before everyone else does, plus sneak peaks of recipes. Sign up here.
