It's my birthday, have free stuff
Bet that sets off a bunch of spam filters 😂
It’s my birthday! Still not entirely sure how I made it to 50 😱 but to celebrate I’m making a bunch of my work FREE/PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT from today through the weekend.
(“A writer faced with his own shortcomings celebrates his 50th birthday.” How did the Stable Diffusion AI get a camera into my study, that’s what I want to know)
First there’s my musical labour of love, the SILENCAEON project. Since 2015 I’ve released nine albums under this banner, and you can now download them all for FREE or pay what you want:
In 2018 my technogothic biopunk story Soul Music was published in legendary sci-fi mag Interzone. Shortly afterwards I published it as an ebook – but for some reason Amazon won’t let me make that edition free (I’m a complete novice at self-publishing, it’s undoubtedly ‘user error’). So you can either download a free PDF from my website for a limited time, or if you want to throw me some shekels anyway you can buy the Kindle edition.
Then there’s the stuff I do that’s always free, and there’s more than you might realise. It includes several short stories, and a bunch of non-fiction articles: check out the Fiction and Non-Fiction sections at my website to read them.
Old school RPG lovers may be especially interested in my articles for Arcane magazine back in the ’90s, my first ever pro writing work 😲💀 Find them in the Non-Fiction section.
You can watch CROSSOVER POINT, the short “lockdown film” I made with Moisés Chiullan and Casey McKinnon, for free at YouTube:
And of course there are all the podcasts I make and take part in, like Writing & Breathing, Thrash it Out, The Incomparable Game Show and more, which are always available to listen for free. See a full list at https://antonyjohnston.com/work/podcasts/
ADVICE FOR WRITERS
Finally, did you know there’s a whole section of my website specifically for other writers filled with advice, instructional videos, process tips, and even sample comic scripts? It’s at https://antonyjohnston.com/forwriters/
