New fiction – Get that rat off my face!

I just published a new science fiction novella that I wrote last year!

Get that rat off my face! front cover

You can find it here: Get that rat off my face! It’s totally free, released under a creative commons license.

Blurb about the story:

thought experiment: noun
an experiment carried out only in the imagination.

But what if you wake up one day and find yourself inside a thought experiment? Watch out, because the stuff of imagination is now your reality.

Physics, love, politics, music, the mind, the nature of reality, telepathic monkeys… Get that rat off my face! is an irreverent look at the most important things in the life of an obsessed science fiction reader.

You can find all the stories I currently have published, for free, on my fiction page.


Passout 2011-2012 new years eve portrait marathon

A fun photo project idea: take a portrait photo of everyone at a small juggling convention. What shall I do with the photos? No idea. I’ll think of something. Meanwhile it was really good practice for running around with a camera and external lighting (strobe and umbrella), taking photos as quickly and smoothly as possible, and I learned a lot. So did Juliane, who had control of the strobe and umbrella.

Thanks to everyone at Passout 2011-2012 for taking part!

Jugglers’ Calendar 2012 photos by Luke Burrage

In 2010 I took lots of good photos of jugglers, and decided to share some of my favourites in the form of a Jugglers’ Calendar for 2011. Guess what? I took a few hours of the last day of 2011, selected some of my best images of my favourite jugglers from 2011, and made the Jugglers’ Calendar for 2012!

I have no permissions from any of these jugglers, so while I’m sure they wouldn’t mind you printing out a calendar, don’t try to make money with these images or anything like that. I released all these photos on my blog under a creative commons 3.0 license, which means no commercial use without my permission. And to get my permission, email me here: luke@juggler.net

Here is the zip file of all the high resolution jpgs, or click each image to see the individual high resolution versions.

Find the names of all the jugglers below.
