State of the Vulture’s Nest

May 16, 2022

You might have noticed my publishing output has waned over the last couple years. My last major publication was a novel, Mage Tech Duet, a scifi/fantasy hybrid. That’s because I’ve been exploring other creative outlets, such as video game programming. My latest hobby has been Meta’s Horizon Worlds, a sandbox application for creating VR games and art.

Over the weekend, I published what’s called a hub world, “Vulture’s Nest,” to provide easy access to my VR creations and collaborations. This will be updated as time goes on, just like a website. Now, whenever I make a new game/art/whatever, I can drop just a single door into that world, linking back to this one, so visitors can explore other ones. Here’s a video of what it looks like:

I’m not sure where my publishing “career” is headed, if I even had one. I’ve been submitting stories for publication, performance, and production for over 30 years now, and I’m burnt-out. So I’ve decided it’s okay to have other creative pursuits. I have to do it for my psychological health. So I don’t know what’s next: another video game, a song, a piano performance, a dramatic performance, a painting, or more fiction. It depends on what tickles my fancy and what you ask for.

Look for a website redesign in 2022, plus more unpredictable creations and some minor publishing news. C’est la vie!

MAGE TECH DUET Now Available

March 17, 2022

MAGE TECH DUET is now available as a Kindle eBook.

In this scifi/fantasy cross-genre novel, Samuel Coventry is an African-American, foul-mouthed assassin whose only joy comes from listening to Cool Jazz. He uses reverse-engineered alien technology, such as a bag of holding in his mouth and a black hole shotgun, to do his job. His targets are psychic mages—the telepaths and telekinetics who threaten his employer’s organized crime operation.

Everything’s gravy until he targets a recording artist named Eva. No problem, except he’s also supposed to kill her six-year-old son. Screw that.

Protecting them puts him at odds with his boss. He’s soon battling commandoes sent to clean up. Among other things, they’re armed with tactical time-travel devices that allow them to go back a few minutes and correct their mistakes.

As if the crap isn’t thick enough, Coventry is developing feelings for Eva. He better not let anyone die, least of all himself.

Reviews
Mage Tech Duet is a tasty genre stew of urban SF, horror, and hard-edge fantasy. Matthew Warner invites us into one of the more original and terrifying futures, following an anti-hero protagonist with unique tools, skills, and street-smart badass sass. We are glad (and a bit dizzy) to have come along for the ride, but we just hope the world Warner creates in Mage Tech Duet remains fiction…at least for a little while!”
Keith Minnion, author of The Bone Worms and Dog Star
