10 v24 -- books, links, contact information


Welcome to 10v24.net! (explanation of site name)

My name is James Banks (email, follow, blogs). I am a writer and I make other creative things.

What do you write?

In the past, I made these books. I have a few more books in development right now, in the 200 to 500 page range. But for now, I am mainly releasing a series of booklets (under 10,000 words). Some of them are by me, and perhaps eventually I'll link to some written by my friends. They are beautiful, or simple, or meaningful, or helpful, or they stir a person, to love and good works, or all of the above.

There are 2 booklets currently offered, and more are on the way.

"Wasting" Time, (3 November 2017)
    by me

Wasting time helps us rest, but to some extent, it's possible to do helpful things in a way that also rests us. Three suggestions are given: picking up trash, writing letters to representatives, and having parties. (11 pages, free ebook, version for printing)

Destruction and Beauty, (14 July 2017)
    by me

I thought a lot about religion and philosophy and decided that we can't know things in a way that coerces us into believing in them -- this applies to all knowledge and all religion. So then, what is left is to talk about specific beautiful things. (30 pages, free ebook, version for printing)

How can I contact you?

You can email me at banks at 10v24 dot net.

You can follow me on Twitter, VKontakte (or "friend" me), and Goodreads.

Site name

10v24 refers to 10:24. I wanted something short and unique for the URL for this site, back in 2012 when I started it. I like the aesthetics of powers of two, and I wanted to make reference to computers. Hebrews 10:24 is an appropriate verse for this site nowadays.
