I just got confirmation that Nomad X is going to be published on Atropos Press. The electronic version is out already on Amazon and the iBookstore, but with the print version I'm going to prepare some extras to differentiate it. I might include a long essay on disruption in the introduction to the book. When I wrote it, sending a "message" was far from my mind, but at time two concepts interested me: narratives and how they form, and disruption via art and provocation.

Thanks to everybody who has been downloading it and reading it so far.

A few months back Prick of the Spindle featured some of the street art of Nomad X. A lot of this is in the book, woven into the narrative.

The Power of Nightmares by British documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis was the most powerful influence on Nomad X, besides the character of Fu Manchu created by Sax Rohmer. The Power of Nightmares examines the revealing similarities between muslim nationalist/fundamentalism, the American neocons and their intellectual forbears Sayyid Qutb and Leo Strauss. It's a finely crafted 3-part documentary that I'd recommend to anyone interested in peaking under the veil of Maya that shrouds our current perception of world events, especially when filtered through mainstream media. In my humble opinion it's a masterpiece.

Part 1: The Power of Nightmares Part 1-Baby it's Cold Outside
Part 2: The Power of Nightmares Part 2 - The Phantom Victory
Part 3: The Power of Nightmares Part 3 - The Shadows in the Cave

Remember this bit of theater? Stuff like this inspired me to write Nomad X.
