Hello brave Internet wanderer. Welcome to my humble pile of digital debris, where if you pick finely through my sordid scraps of psychological refuse, you might find the odd salvageable insight.

This website is intended to hark back to the good old days of the World Wide Web – that brave new digital frontier, before Google and greedy corporates sucked all the attention juice from your eyeballs, leaving you a withered husk of ADHD-riddled inattention.

Here I post short musings on the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. Nothing is off-limits and everything is fair game. So buckle up cos we’re gonna get freaky.

What’s in a name?

And the name I hear ye cry?! Good question, I reply. Frightspear is one of the ships in Iain Banks’ splendid culture series of sci-fi novels, must-reads if you haven’t explored this wholesome and possibly prescient universe.
