Outsider


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!

The Last Christmas


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.

Rational Fiction


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.

Draco Malfoy and the Practice of Rationality


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.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Super-Rationality


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.

Animorphs: The Reckoning


AU/multiple points of departure, with the intent to fix/sane-itize/create internal consistency, allowing rational agents to take things to the extreme. Visser Three is competent, the Yeerks are moving rapidly, and the Animorphs are actually trying to win (but are inexperienced and unprepared). Inspired by Worm and HPMOR.
