I am Ithaka O.
I tell stories.

Things, beings, and ideas that make me smile are: cats, coffee, good food, good drinks, the ability to leave, wild weather while I’m safely at home, home in general, no baggage but not a minimalist, doomsdays, and a brighter future.

The following is a list of things I do.

A newsletter.

For ebooks of Pure Fiction and other things.

For online reading of Pure Fiction stuff.

*Pure Fiction stories are also on these and other external platforms:

  • Apple
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Kobo (including Kobo Plus)
  • Google
  • Scribd

Or ask your librarian to add my books to the library catalog. My books are available through these library services:

  • Overdrive
  • Bibliotheca
  • Baker & Taylor
  • BorrowBox

Please note:

I am not on Amazon. At the moment, their rules prohibit me from maximizing creation time, minimizing hassle, and sharing my stories as widely as possible.


I dream of a world where people who create can actually create and get paid without succumbing to the tyranny of bullshittery. The day I die, I want to know that I at least tried to help make that world real.

Thus, I have a bunch of blogs at write.as. It’s privacy-focused, supports Fediverse-following, and more.

I also enjoy using Coil‘s Web Monetization on these write.as blogs as well as on my other sites listed above, whenever possible.

Here are the blogs:

The Sitting Log Ithaka O.

The Sitting Log: A record of time spent on writing (while seated). Purpose: do not commit the sin of talking about writing more than actually writing.

Corpo Real: Seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled. Written by me but not necessarily about me.

Memento Mori Moments: Vignette-esque celebrations about the expected death of us, the mortals. We shall die because we lived.

Thanks for stopping by!
