I am Dominic Milton Trott, author of The Drug Users Bible, for which I self-administered more than 150 different drugs over a 10 year period to document how to use them more safely. Ask Me Anything!

I've led a relatively normal life, working largely in IT and raising a family in the UK. Later in life, I became interested in researching psychedelics and recording my experiences. I also frequented the online drug forums, where I noticed that some users would suddenly drop off the radar, often having made a mistake and died during their experimentation.

I found this to be really disturbing, and thought that if I could expand and share my knowledge of what to expect for each drug, along with relevant safety information (dosage, duration, precautions, etc), I could help to save some of those lives.

I self-administered the drugs, 157 in total, over a number of years, and turned what I learned into a book: The Drug Users Bible. I chose this format because I believed it might reach a different constituency of users to a website. I travelled extensively for sourcing and authenticity, basically living the project for extensive periods.

I have been interviewed by Vice and did my first on camera interview with Freethink, available here.

Please feel free to ask me literally anything, including on the drugs, the journey, the places, or anything else. I will try my best to give a sensible but at least an honest answer.

FOOTNOTE: There are hundreds of question, which is good... but it is taking a while to answer them all. Rest assured that I will get through them and answer every one. :-)

I am Dave Plummer, author of Windows Task Manager, Zip Folders, and worked on Space Cadet Pinball, Media Center, Windows Shell, MS-DOS, OLE32, WPA, and more.

Hi Reddit, I'm Davepl and I'm stoked to answer any questions you have about the projects I worked on or about working at Microsoft during the 90s in general. I was on every major operating system from MS-DOS through XP & Server 2003.

My general timeline starts in 1993 on MS-DOS, where I worked on Smartdrv, Doublespace, Setup, Diskcopy, and others.

I soon moved to Windows NT, where I started in RPC/OLE and moved to Windows shell to undertake the port of the Win9X user interface over to Windows NT.

Along the way I worked on our initial version of Media Center, Space Cadet Pinball, Windows Product Activation, and others.

For background info on how I got to Microsoft, the stories of how Task Manager, ZipFolders, and Pinball came to be, and proof (video of my cardkey, office, etc) please check out the following video:

I'm Gary Taubes, science/health journalist, author of the new book "The Case for Keto." Ask me anything!

In my most recent book, THE CASE FOR KETO, I argue that the established rules about weight control and eating healthy are wrong, and why eating less and exercising more is the wrong approach to weight control for those of us (perhaps a couple of hundred million Americans) who put on fat all too easily. I discuss the science behind low-carbohydrate, high-fat/ketogenic diets and why keto, or something very close to it, may be necessary to achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life. Ask me anything about weight control and the ketogenic diet.

In my opinion, "reclaiming" literature from the author is nonsense

Not trying to start a massive debate here about JK Rowling, but I remember when she started with her TERF-discourse a lot of Harry Potter fans and fansites said that they wanted to "reclaim" Harry Potter from the author (or something to that effect).

Now whilst I sympathise with this opinion and am no fan of JK Rowling's recent shithousery, I can't for the life of me see how you can enjoy a series while at the same time ignore the LITERAL AUTHOR of that series. The two things have gotta co-exist, otherwise you're just putting your head in the sand.

For instance, do I like Michael Jackson's music? Yes, the guy was insanely talented. Did he also diddle kids? Most likely yes as well. It's the same thing with Kevin Spacey movies etc. Living with the fact that the creator of a good piece of work is also a douchebag is an unfortunate state of affairs, but I can't see any other alternative.

Try as you want to ignore JK Rowling and her endless Twitter miasma, if she writes a new Harry Potter book tomorrow it will be canon, and regardless of its level of shittery she did create the entire series from inside her own head (okay, she didn't personally make the movies, but it was her material that inspired them).

Again, I sympathise fully with the transgender people that simultaneously love Harry Potter but also want to distance their fandom from the author's remarks, but there's gotta be a point where you cant ignore her any more.

Tarkov-market's author has copied my site as a paid feature

Hi All!

I'm the developer behind https://tarkovtracker.io/ - for the past year I've been working slowly in my free time to build up and maintain the site to help people track and plan their Tarkov progress faster. My goal was originally to solve a problem I had: when playing with my friends we'd spend a lot of time between raids just figuring out what we both needed next and how to progress faster together. It evolved into a free site, no ads, no subscription, just a hobby project to try and share the tools with everyone. I had a Patreon site for those who really wished to help me with the base costs of creating and running the site, but provided no benefit to them.

A few days ago, I had the idea: What if I allow people to enter their API keys from Tarkov-Market to pull data about item's value and help them choose to keep an item for a quest turn in, or sell, especially near the start of a wipe when prices often start high then get lower in a few weeks. So I hopped over to https://tarkov-market.com/ of which I am a Patreon supporter myself, only to discover a couple new links had been added in the past week. Quest progression and hideout progression. Those sounded a lot like what I was doing. Lo and behold, the features are near identical copies of my free site. Not only are they copies, but they are copies behind a subscription.

Here's some comparisons:

One of the quest pages I designed and created, showing quests, how many quests it was locked behind, how many locked after it, the maps it encompassed

Tarkov-market copy of my quest page, with almost exactly the same information (they added icons) laid out in almost an exact copy

The hideout module tracker I designed and created on tarkovtracker

Author appreciation thread: Seanan McGuire

There are a few authors on r/Fantasy that get recommended over and over and many of them are great. However there are a few authors I don't think get talked about enough so I thought I would start writing threads to give those authors some love. The first author I want to talk about is Seanan McGuire and if you haven't read any of her books yet you should.

Why should your read McGuire?

  1. She's an amazing writer. While she may note have the prose of Rothfuss she can turn a phrase better than many other authors. She writes in a style that feels natural enough as a reader that I get lost int he story and forget I am reading at times. Until she uses her mastery of language to turn a phrase that makes me stop and have to re-think the world I live in as I suddenly see something in a whole new way. Sometimes her words make me cry and sometimes they make me laugh but her words always make me feel something.
  1. Representation

No matter who you are there is probably someone you can relate to in at least one of her stories. She has stories with gay. queer, bi, lesbian, trans, deaf, neurodivergent, overweight asexual, black, white, indian... And not just background or one off characters. Recurring characters in same sex relationships, twin deaf sisters, Sarah from the incryptids series is neurodivergent and is the main character of the series current arc, the first book in the wayward children has an asexual main character. These aren't just off screen or implied. Nancy from Ever Heart a Doorway is asexual and refers to her as such. Open representation of so many people in so many different ways. She has at least two trans characters and they are different not just the same character with a different name.

  1. Variety

Want to read about a hitchhiking ghost in rural America? Start with Sparrow Hill Road. How about a half Fae in San Francisco trying to figure out how to survive the world of the fae without giving up her life in the human world? Give October Daye a try (This is an amazing series but give it 3 books to mature). How about a family of monster hunters who a few generations ago realized what they actually needed to do was protect the monsters from the hunters? Try the InCryptids. A boarding school for kids who come home from portal fantasy worlds and can't adjust to their new, ordinary lives? The Wayward Children series is for you! Want zombies? Try the Feed series. Murderous mermaids? Rolling in the Deep. Parasite based healthcare? Parasite. Univer

Why I Love Kristen Ashley... and Why YOU Love Your Favorite Author/Sub-genre/Book!

Whether it's my jam or not, I want to know why you like your favorite author or sub-genre or book, especially if you feel like they're a sub underdog, but even if you don't. I'll start.

Kristen Ashley is not everyone's taste. Her writing is usually pretty unpolished, often redundant, and her thirty-something characters always dress (and sometimes act) like Lizzie McGuire. I love her, though and I'm going to try to articulate why.

When I was 19, I married my high school boyfriend, because my mother took off the year before and he was... there. I don't recommend it, because as the years passed, he became a strange mix of passive and abusive. I would go to school every day, taking out tens of thousands of dollars in student loans, just to pay the bills, only to come home to him sitting on the couch, with another excuse about why he couldn't get a job (or his fake job wouldn't pay him), why the dog had been chained up in his own waste all day without water, and why he ate all of what little food I could afford. Towards the end, I was driving around with all of my valuables in the car and sleeping with my keys in my pillowcase. It was a very dark time.

At 23, I filed for divorce, alone in a judge's office, morbidly obese, feeling like the biggest failure in the world. I live in the South, so all of my former classmates on Facebook were posting pictures of engagement rings, wedding photos, new houses, and ultrasounds... but here I was just grateful to have moved into an apartment where I felt my dog and I were safe, hoping no one asked about the recent name change. Then, came romance novels. Romance novels gave me hope that it wasn't all bad... but the heroines were all so young, often younger than I was and none of them ever had any baggage. Even the paranormal novels that introduced me to the genre starred sheltered women being swept off their feet, by handsome men, but I was a 23-year-old divorcee, working two jobs and attending grad school with six figure student loan debt, sleeping with a revolver under her pillow. Living in the Bible Belt, I was constantly hearing that I was running out of time, all the good men were taken, and if I didn't get on it, my eggs were going to sour... in my early to mid-twenties. Romance novels were simultaneously making me feel better and worse, but I kept reading for years.

Enter Kristen Ashley, when I was 26. My first title was Knight, which I hated. The dialogue was like a parody of KA's normal hero dialogue

[Anime] Kuma Miko - the anime where even the author hated the ending

What is Kuma Miko?

Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear is a manga by Masume Yoshimoto that has been serialized in the magazine Monthly Comic Flapper since 2013. The plot focuses on Machi Amayadori, a miko (shrine priestess) of a rural village that has a strong relationship with the local bear population. As such, her guardian is Natsu, a talking bear, and she must perform traditional rituals regularly.

The main conflict of the series starts in the first chapter: Machi is tired of living in the mountains, and wants to go to a high school in the big city. Natsu is naturally against this, both because he would be unable to join her as a bear as well as the fact that due to her country upbringing, Machi has social anxiety that makes it difficult for her to make friends or talk to others. So the series naturally follows Machi as she tries to reach outside of her safety zone while Natsu tries to have her stay with him.

The drama

In 2016, the Kuma Miko manga was popular enough that an anime was greenlighted. The studios involved were Kinema Citrus and EMT Squared, the director was Kiyoshi Matsuda, and the people in charge of script writing were Pierre Sugiura and Masao Iketani. You don’t have to memorize these names, although they will come up a bit later.

Now, a major point about anime in general is that it usually is only produced to promote the manga - as such, definitive endings are rare. For the most part, an anime will usually get around 12 episodes and then go β€œhey buy the rest of the manga for more”. As such, directors and studios are often at an impasse - certain manga just don’t have end points which are suitable for anime. Sometimes, this leads to an anime-original ending that wraps up the show itself, but may not get together with the original manga.

So now we get to the final episode of Kuma Miko. The premise is that Machi is going to the big city to perform in an idol contest. Natsu is conflicted - while he prays to the mountain gods that Machi be unable to leave the village, he regrets it knowing this is what Machi wants. After Machi gets scared to perform in front of others and runs off, Natsu goes out and helps her to get back on the stage. Her performance goes over well, with the audience applauding her, but she mistakes it for them booing and jeering her and runs off.

So the next part, [as a reviewer recalls it:](https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/kumamiko

Hi, I’m Anita DeFrantz, Olympic Champion, Vice President of the International Olympic Committee, author, civil rights lawyer, and professional speaker. Ask me anything about the Olympics, professional sports, rowing, and athletes’ civil rights issues!

I started my athletic career as a collegiate rower, then later went on to captain the first U.S. women’s rowing team in history: who competed at the 1976 Montreal Olympics and won the Bronze medal. Then, four years later, I became embroiled in an international scandal when, as a newly minted attorney, I challenged President Jimmy Carter’s boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympic games. The boycott, driven by political ambitions, served to threaten the rights of U.S. athletes to compete in the apolitical Games; an event where thousands of American athletes dedicated half of their lives to training for.

Nearly half a decade later, I was honored to be invited to join the International Olympic Committee, or IOC (the international organization founded to run the Olympics), as the first African American woman to serve as Vice President. As a ranking officer of the IOC, I then dedicated my life to spreading the spirit of the Olympics throughout the world, and to unite the many peoples of the countries participating. However, my tenure at the IOC has not always been one devoid of controversy. In 2016, I lead the charge and investigation into a global conspiracy to defraud the Olympics via government sponsored drug doping programs. The conspiracy involved many high ranking politicians, influential sports figures, and members of the medical community: needless to say, it was one moment in the history of the Olympics that threatened to destroy it as an institution forever.

In addition to the aforementioned topics, ask me anything about thinking like an Olympic Champion: tips and strategies that I have used throughout my life to turn incredible challenges into victories and success. I would love to share these with you as well!

So, without further ado, I look forward to your questions.

There is NEVER a good reason to curse and insult an author, regardless of what you think about their story.

I had a guest reader go through about half of one of my stories, commenting with increasing vitriol about how stupid the characters were, how nonsensical the plotline was, and eventually how terrible of a writer and person I am.

Fortunately, I am an experienced and self-confident writer who can literally laugh it off. BUT NOT EVERYONE IS.

When I imagine the same things being said to some of the younger, more sensitive writers I know, it sickens me to think of the damage that could be done. Some of them are barely holding onto their motivation as it is. Some of them already say worse things to and about themselves, and only with the utmost care and gentle encouragement will they ever bloom into the amazing, valuable writers I know they can be.

No matter how poorly written or stupid a story may be, there is no excuse for being cruel. To destroy someone's motivation with targeted and deliberate attacks is unforgivable.

I will be the first to say that criticism can be invaluable, even when it hurts sometimes. I would not be the writer I am today if I hadn't been told some bluntly honest and painful truths about my writing as a teen. But there is a vast sea of difference between critique and hatred.

If you dislike the way a story is heading, by all means, write an essay on how the storyline should have instead played out. Perhaps your comment will spark a new idea for a better direction; maybe it will be dismissed as unhelpful for this specific instance. But do it with the understanding that this is an act of creation by someone who is not you and does not necessarily share your view of the world, and who may in fact have a perfectly valid story even if you dislike it. Be kind.

I am Libbi Duncan, Bestselling Young Adult Author, Amateur Cosplayer, and Christmas Enthusiast; I wrote my newest book while in lockdown by myself with a new baby. AMA!

Hi Reddit, I’m Libbi! I’m here to talk about my new book, PETRICHOR: Book Three of the Scorching Trilogy, which I wrote mostly on my cell phone while nursing a new baby in lockdown by myself. This is my first AMA, so I’m super excited!

Short bio:

You may remember me for my viral Christmas tree hair a few years ago, but I’m also a Young Adult sci-fi author, amateur cosplayer, convention panelist, US Army Veteran, and High School English teacher.

Short book intro:

The Scorching Trilogy follows Madi, a headstrong teen from Pax Lunar Colony, as she journeys to Earth a thousand years after the apocalypse in search of her missing parents. Instead of a barren wasteland, she discovers a garden paradise and a mutant war that changes everything.

My proof: Instagram

Edit: It's 11pm CST; I'm going to respond to a couple more questions, but then I'm going to sleep for the night. Thank you SO much to everyone who has commented so far. I'll check back in tomorrow to answer more questions!

Edit 2: I didn’t want to announce this beforehand, but I’m giving the top comment a signed copy of all three books in my trilogy. Congrats /u/Grenache! I hope this is allowed. Haha

We're M.A. Carrick (aka, Marie Brennan and Alyc Helms), authors of THE MASK OF MIRRORS, the first in the Rook & Rose trilogy. Ask Us Anything!

Hi, Alyc Helms here. I'm 1/2 of M.A. Carrick (along with Marie Brennan), and we're delighted to return to r/FantasyΒ for an AMA that's really more of an AUA.

Our new novel, The Mask of Mirrors, features con artists, crime lords, and masked vigilantes; political intrigue, capers, banter, and ballroom duels in a Venetian-esque setting.

It's a layer-cake of deception that grew out of a tabletop rpg thatΒ I GM'd and Marie was a player in. This is what happens when two anthropologist authors try to write a little background character fic together. You can find out more about our collaboration at our website, www.macarrick.com.

Marie hasΒ written novels about Victorian lady scientists studying dragons, faeries manipulating English history, and most recently, fragments of broken worlds glomming together into a strange patchwork reality. If you want to know more about her fiction, game writing, or Patreon, you can find that at her website,Β Swan Tower.

As for me, I'm the author of the Adventures of Mr. Mystic series, which is a strange little mashup of the pulp adventure and xianxia genres, and is, as Marie's cover blurb attests, "A hell of a lot of fun." I can be found at www.alychelms.com.

I'm starting us off because I'm the morning fox to Marie's night owl, but she'll be on in the late morning, and we'll both be around throughout the day to answer questions, whether they’re about our writing or anything else. For a bonus, Marie (who is an amateur photographer) will also provide a link to a photo of hers along with her answer to each question!

Please make certain to black out any spoiler-related text in your questions -- there are a lot of mysteries and secrets in The Mask of Mirrors, and we wouldn't want to unmask them too early!

Edit 1: Hey all -- thank you for all the amazing questions! Marie and I need to step away for a bit (I have work meetings, and she's got an appointment), but we'll be back this afternoon to answer more, so keep them coming!

Edit 2: We're back and answering again! It looks like the flow has slowed down a bit, but we'll be checking in and answering any questions that come in for the next day or two, so feel free to keep posting them.

A look at The Handmaid's Tale author Margaret Atwood's daily writing routine: "On a typical day, Atwood usually starts working at 10am, aiming for 1,000 to 2,000 words."

When speaking at a 2015 Guardian Live Members’ event, Margaret Atwood was asked whether she considers herself prolific. The Canadian author and poet scoffed at the notion and said β€œJoyce Carol Oates is prolific; I’m just old.”

However, taking into consideration her 18 poetry books, 18 novels, 11 non-fiction books, nine collections of short fiction, eight children’s books, and two graphic novels published since 1961; it’s a little hard to agree with the writer.

A characteristic that has helped her work output over the years is that, unlike many other writers who have set rituals and working conditions, Atwood can write anywhere.

β€œI’m not often in a set writing space,” she told The Daily Beast. β€œI don’t think there’s anything too unusual about it, except that it’s full of books and has two desks. On one desk there’s a computer that is not connected to the internet. On the other desk is a computer that is connected to the internet. You can see the point of that!”

A frequent traveller her whole career, Atwood is used to writing in the unlikeliest of places, from a remote English village to Afghanistan during a round-the-world trip with her family. She began writing The Handmaid’s Tale while on a fellowship in West Berlin during the 1980s, according to The New Yorker.

>Unlike many writers, Atwood does not require a particular desk, arranged in a particular way, before she can work. β€œThere’s a good and a bad side to that,” she told me. β€œIf I did have those things, then I would be able to put myself in that fetishistic situation, and the writing would flow into me, because of the magical objects. But I don’t have those, so that doesn’t happen.” The good side is that she can write anywhere, and does so, prolifically.

On a typical writing day, Atwood usually starts working at 10am, aiming for 1,000 to 2,000 words per day. She wraps up her work at 4pm, although sometimes she’ll write into the evening, β€œif I’m really zipping along on a novel.”

Describing her morning routine, Atwood said, β€œI’d get up in the morning, have breakfast, have coffee, then go upstairs to the room where I write. I’d sit down and probably start transcribing from what I’d handwritten the day before.”

She also doesn’t like to outline her books, preferring to β€œjump in, like going swimming.” As a result of this process, she rarely writes a novel in a linear fashion, often happening upon stories in discovery mode.

β€œScenes present themselves. Sometimes it proceeds in a linear fashion, bu

Looking for modern Horror recommendations from female, feminist-leaning authors or stories with feminist themes.

I’m familiar with the Mt. Rushmore....Shelley, Jackson, Butler, Le Guin.....But my partner asked me for current female horror authors/novels and I realized I couldn’t name a ton. Preferably ones that are not too slow. Totally fine with gore.
