Ladies and gentlemen,
I first want to thank you for reading my blog. I do not take your attentions for granted. You may have noticed that I haven’t produced anything recently and for that I apologize. It’s not laziness, or at least not totally laziness. I’m working on some big projects that are sucking up all my cognitive resources and will continue to do so for a while. While they are going to be cutting down my output, I hope they prove to be interesting enough to justify the wait.
I’m working on a series of podcasts about morally “bad” people in history. This will be different from the typical series of this type in that I’m going to attack, hard, the notion that “badness” is the defining, or even contributing, trait driving things like the Holocaust or Stalinist purges.
I’m also on the homestretch on the next novel, “The Potency.” Two very ordinary heroes travel the earth seeking revenge on the epynomous God of Potency and, in doing so, explore the nature of patriotism, the inherently insecure position of moral certainty.
Finally, I’m working on a translation of “The Potency” into Korean.
Hang in there, guys, I’m by no means done.
