10 v24 -- books, links, contact information


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

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

Why is this site so grey and plain?

Grey is for the desert, for what is quiet, dry, and non-obvious. We are likely to know the truth that is vivid and loud, but not as likely to know the desert truth. The desert is a barren place, so I have made the backgrounds textured. (Texture is like color.)

Plainness is for simplicity and lightweightness.

These are some of my values, both aesthetic and spiritual, which I try to express with this site's design, but there are other values which I express in my writing.

What do you write?

Longer books: Letters to People Who Care, The Tree With Unimaginable Roots, and others.

I have written a short play and something about cooking. Also I have a story published in an online magazine, Uneven Earth.

I also write booklets (under 10,000 words). There are 2 booklets currently offered.

Fiducialism (PDF epub mobi), (1 October 2018)

Booklet about how everything is trust. (28 pages, free ebook, version for printing A4)

Destruction and Beauty (PDF epub mobi), (14 July 2017)

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 A4)

How can I contact you / keep in touch?

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.
