NationStates: New Thing By Guy Who Made The Site

Recommended Posts

People often ask me, "Max, why don't you stop writing novels and just work on NationStates full-time?" And I'm like, "Uh, that's kind of offensive. Writing novels is my passion. It's what I love to do." But by then they've wandered off because they don't really care unless there's a web game.

But guess what? This time, there's a web game!

Play the Providence Battle Simulator

It's no NationStates. I'll be honest. But you might find it a fun diversion during these turbulent times.

There's also a book. You might have heard of Providence from the ads on this site. It's about four people on a spaceship who are trillions of miles from home and have to fight aliens who spit black holes.

Providence by Max Barry

“Brain-bending adventure” —Newsweek

“★★★★★ Easily the first, best book to beat this year” —Bradley Horner's Book Reviews

“A light-hearted thriller with a superb dark, existential sting in its tail.” —The Sunday Times (UK)

I was thinking of picking it up.

The book Company was pretty good and I was working in the office of large multinational at the time, so it felt like the same sort of culture.

Machine Man was a bit mediocre.

Lexicon, however, was f*cking great.

What is holding me back is that I don't want to give money to Amazon and buying it seems a bit spurious right now.
