I, Universe audiobook in production. Start listening now!

i-universe-audioRather than wait until I’ve narrated all 120,000 words (faint!), I’m going to release the audiobook, chapter by chapter, as quickly as I can record it, likely at a rate of one or two chapters per week. There are thirty-three in total.

Initially, the audiobook will be a Patreon exclusive product, as a series of MP3 files which can be played from the site or downloaded to your portable device. Making a pledge of as little as $1 per month will give you access to everything: https://www.patreon.com/darrylsloan

The book’s introduction and first chapter are publicly available, no strings attached, to give everyone a taster. Chapter two is ready and waiting for patrons, and I’ll be uploading chapter three later today.

In a few months, when the work is done, I will look into other forms of distribution, such as the popular Audible service. But why wait?

Zombie Genocide for your Halloween viewing pleasure

Happy Halloween, folks. Here’s a little seasonal gift for you. Zombie Genocide is the first of six films that I made with Andrew Harrison (as Midnight Pictures) between the years 1991 and 2005.

It was hard making a film on a shoestring budget at a time when our home computers didn’t even possess hard drives. No digital gunshots, no digital blood spatters. Nothing was easy, not even the editing, which had to be done on the camcorder, shot for shot, as we filmed. But the joy of the work was its uniqueness; in the early 1990s almost no one was making movies as a hobby. We persevered for two and a half years to make this, and the result is a little homegrown horror flick that has a strange charm.

The fifth monthly Q&A is now online, exclusively for Patreon supporters and I, Universe readers. Topics covered this month are the legalisation of recreational and hard drugs; the top three people I would like to converse with; how my life is different from when I was a Christian; the reason I became interested in Satanism.

You’ll noticed I’ve deleted the ‘Inner Sanctum’ link from the navigation bar, as I started to dislike the overly religious sentiment behind that term. To watch the Q&A, use the Secret Videos link, under ‘Vlog’ in the top navigation bar. When prompted for a password, look up page 123, line 5, word 1, from I, Universe.

You can also access past Q&As and other unlisted videos. Several hours of exclusive content awaits you.

Author of the Month at the Graham Hancock website

I’ve been selected as Author of the Month for June 2019, on Graham Hancock’s website. The administrator asked me to contribute a 2,000-word essay. I could have extracted something directly from “I, Universe,” but decided to write something new instead. You can read it here: Rediscovering Magic Through Science.
