Hey everyone. My name is Rory Price and I'm a science-fiction writer. I recently self-published my first novel, Opt Out. It follows a group of free software activist who get very worried about a new form of invasive proprietary technology known as smart implants.

Other than that, I'm a dedicated free software user and take privacy very seriously. I'm very interested in storytelling in general.

you're not willing to be obnoxious about racism.

because i am feeling a certain way about this person's admission and i'm trying to sort through it without making a mess of things.... it doesn't help that people in this server are praising them for doing something like that

so hey is it unethical or jealousy/envy that someone decided to run their light novel through google translate and post it on a Japanese site to get ahead of the game? especially if they get high praise for their stuff?

I made another larger, more polished piece for #smaugust this time I focused on Morsus. He has never really gotten a ton of art, so its nice to mess with his design a little.
