Alternative title: May the 9th Be With You
Killing Gravity was published on the 9th of May, 2017, which means it’s been 4 years since I started this (hopefully long) journey of building a writing career for myself.
They say the best promotion an author can do for their book is to release the next one, and I’m hard at work editing it now, ready to go on sub to agents (hopefully) next month. Wish me luck.
In the meantime, I’m keeping busy. There’s the nothing here newsletter, the Buddies Without Organs podcast, and a new collaborative fiction project in the works, not to mention a line of t-shirt designs I plan to launch soon via Oh Nothing Press. Oh, and an anthology that commissioned a story from me, and another video-related project, another collab story that just needs final edits before we get it out into the world, and on and on. Berserker mode, as usual.
Thanks for joining me on this ride.
And just in case you need a prompt, buy my books 😉

So nice to hear from you, Corey! I’m glad you’re doing well. And yes, I will always be buying your books!
Thank you, William! I really appreciate the support.
A very random question: what does Oxeneer mean? Is it a song reference? I am doing a YT video featuring Voidwitch Saga and translating a short excerpt into Polish… could you help with that?
Thanks for reaching out. I can’t help with an actual definition (sorry!), but I can confirm it’s a reference to the These Arms Are Snakes album Oxeneers or the Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home. There’s a few names throughout the trilogy that I borrowed from TAAS or Genghis Tron.
For a literal translation, maybe you could make a portmanteau out of oxen and the last part of pioneer? Something like wołynier – though that’s from google so it might be an awful translation.
Thanks! Much appreciated! 🙂 If it’s a reference to TAAS (as I suspected ;-)), I will leave it as is, especially as my channel has sorta-kinda musical roots (I am making these videos as a tribute to a cancelled radio programme that used to be broadcast on Polish national radio every full moon).
Yeah, they were a huge influence on me when it came to envisioning the series – I even thought of the plot of Killing Gravity in terms of the dynamic interchange between noise and quiet of their albums.
Thanks for keeping my work in mind, and good luck with the channel!
