Hi, welcome to my site. My name is Sam and I am a writer, indie publisher, and marketer.  

I write cyberpunk / dystopian fiction, non-fiction, prose, and more. I also occasionally podcast as well as follow other creative pursuits such as NFT art. 

my work is a comment on this dystopian world we seem to be building

Check out my books/works in progress on substack in the links above ^  and below you will find articles I have written under the banner: sleepwalking into dystopia.

gaslighting ourselves for them

They feed their fat faces, whilst they cut our throats.

The bastards love it. And you help spoon it in. even though they spit in your faces. But it’s okay as long as they're racist, they’ll get your vote.

You can bury your head in the bottom of a bottle of whiskey. But that doesn’t make you a poet. You can hide away from what is staring you in the face, that’s your choice.

But you can’t deny your compliance with it. So maybe now, this time, now that you know what the…

It creeps in.

It comes as a shock, life.

When you eventually start living it that is.

Before then it is just a fucking annoyance.

Or for some a fucking blessing, lucky bastards.

But eventually, you will realise you have not been living all along.

And hope it isn’t too long, or too late when you do.

For so many it is.

Regret, as we have discussed, is a motherfucker.

It creeps in.

Don’t let the naysayers of doubt spike your nectar.

You…

The training wheels come off.

Trouble crafts itself around my organs

Clawing on to my heart for dear life

Grafting at the edges.

I should have been gone by now

Or so the thought says

But another denies it. Calls it out for what it is.

When is it over.

When does it begin.

When does the next level start.

There must be a point. Musn’t there?

I mean, if not, then it is all for nothing.

That is too depressing to realise. To accept.

There must…

F bomb

Broken.

The vibration touches inside me. As it penetrates my eardrums.

Taking me to places I had thought I had never been.

Until I realised, I had.

Same places.

Same faces.

We’re stuck in this together.

You lick my finger.

It takes my mind off.

For the briefest of seconds.

I love you for that.

Why can’t that second last.

I take a step.

I fall.

You fall, with…

Not that it ever did.

The problem with life is that it can be fucking hard

and shit at times

Yes, it can be wonderful and beautiful too, but mostly, a lot at least, if I am not being dramatic, is shit.

you know that as much, don’t you?

they want us to deny it, capitalist,

They want us to deny truth, and gloss over semi-precious moments of closure.

Sentimental bullCrap for a disjointed generation.  

Self-abuse becomes mandatory.

It’s the only thing to look…

It is something that is preorganised or a bandwagon that is jumped on. It stokes fear in the public and for that reason it has value. Value to governments, big business, and those that like to seed doubts in the very foundations of society. Therefore, it has utility.

If by jumping on the back of that wagon and indeed seeking to make routes to take over the reins, I really hope this metaphor is panning out, those that aim to utilise that social panic for their own use gain…

Sleepwalking into dystopia looks at the role of big tech verse government legislation that both try to gaslight us into believing they are fighting for us when the reality is quite the opposite

Why do people not see it? Why do they conflate it with conspiracy theory or some kind of radical extremist for even thinking about what is going on in the world? Most people would rather bury their heads in the sand than face…

Lots of people ask themselves what can they do to help the people of Ukraine and stand up to Russia.
 
Well one thing you can do, aside from donating and going to places to help organise and distribute needed supplies, is cause digital disruption.

Conspiracy and War on Sensemaking

1min Read: Opinion: Conspiracy and War on Sensemaking

You would be amiss to have not noticed there is a war on our ability to make sense of the world going on right now. The information wars are raging in the western world. The war on reality, the war on facts and the idea of fake news and “alternative facts” has become prevalent.

Trump is the most obvious and outspoken spokesperson for this, but he is not working alone, and it is not only the far right that that is adding to…
