The mantle of Santa Claus has been passed down once again, this time to an industrial engineer who starts to get some dangerous ideas in his head about the true meaning of Christmas. This fic is still being worked on. I finished it with Christmas (2013) as my deadline, but the story suffered for it, so even though it's complete there will probably be a reworking of it later. read more >>>>
These are the Iron Teeth. This is the north proper, the very knife edge of civilization. Here among the stark mountains and endless forests there are undiscovered treasures, amongst countless unmarked graves. Here, monsters stalk the night and outlaws gather. It is the land of the desperate and the foolish. A land of singular wonders and crushing horror.

I just started writing a youtube sci-fi series in the rationalist tradition. It's a novel in a video format (once you read it you will understand why I did it as a vidoe). Some here are passionate about human augmentation, so I thought about novel augmentation ;-)
It's just the first episode, but I'd like to share with the community... Hope you like it! read more >>>>
A continuation of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, focusing on Draco in his second year. I try to not deviate from HPMOR, but I may make mistakes and there are some plot points open to interpretation. More political than HPMOR, but still some cognitive psychology ala Harry's Lessons. And not nearly as good, so lower your expectations. read more >>>>
Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality — a brilliant story that blew people’s minds, and created the genre of Rationalist Fiction. People who loved it created a community for sharing similar stories, discussing Rational and Rationalist Fiction, and writing HPMOR-inspired works.
If you want to get a general picture of why this thing is awesome, but not sure whether you are ready to read something big, you can take a look at Lord of Rationality, a rational take on The Lord of the Rings. read more >>>>

As Harry considered the horrible situation set before him, something very unusual indeed happened. In an instant, his conscious thoughts were obliterated by the sudden influx of thousands upon thousands of answers to the very immediate problems before him. Some answers were nonsense, some were lunacy, but each one was some crystalline piece of a many-dimensional jigsaw puzzle, provided as if by some great over-mind. A gibbering fiend from another dimension that spewed cacophony from a thousand madness-blackened mouths.
It was in that instant that Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres awakened as a Super-Rationalist. read more >>>>
