Firstly, Austin, Texas’ favorit squid-based producer of science fictions, SPACE SQUID, has picked up my short story “Dragon Came To Galveston to Die”, pending some edits to shorten it.
Secondly, respected indie press out of Lexington, Kentucky, APEX BOOK PUBLISHING, has picked up the electronic rights to LAST DRAGON, so you can have some awesome, mind-bending fantasy fiction on your Kindle from the Kindle Store, or any other sort of reader you want from FictionWise, courtesy of Jason Sizemore and me.
I am pleased.
A mad combination of cutting edge accounting techniques with the hippest, coolest SF in the company break room!
Classic short stories include such hits as “No Angels Dance On The Head of This Pin”, and “Red Space Money, Blue Space Money”, “How To Steal From the Fed and Escape on a Rocket Ship”, “If You Thought Ulysses Was Labyrinthine, Wait ‘Til You See My TPS Reports”
Fans note that this is the only genre where books are told almost entirely in numerical symbols and power point flow charts. Notorious AccountsPunk pranksters encode subtext in binary hidden in the equations. The goal of each artist is to tear down corporations from the inside by hypnotizing their superiors with inscrutable performance art projects during meetings.
Followers of the movement can be deduced by the pencils and paperclips used as body piercings, and the copy of the AccountPunk classic, “Add, Subtract, and DIE!” by the movement’s founder Chuck Palahniuk’s brother, Norman Palahniuk, the novelization of what happened after Monty Python’s skit about the corporate pirates, told in the actual numbers that reflect the reality of their actions. At this time, Norman Palahniuk is the only person to have written a complete novel in the movement, though it is rumored that secret novels exist, being passed around from one accounting firm to another – passed in secret like porn or anarchy. Rumors persist of “World War A”, when the whole planet is infected with deadly Accountancy that must be stopped, and “House of Expense Reports” where a corporation is larger on the inside than on the outside, once you run the numbers.
After all, say the mad geniuses of AccountPunk, written words are a reflection of spoken words that are a reflection of reality. Numbers are the pure expression of reality.
