Hello and welcome to the world of The Magineer series.


The Magineer is a web serial about programmable magic. A scientist/engineer from Earth's future is transported to a different world in a scientific accident.

Caught in a war between two enemy nations, one of which is trying to enslave the other, it all comes to a choice: what will Ethan West do?

But first, he has to answer an important question: in a world of awe-inspiring magic, is science still relevant?

The Magineer is a web serial that I started publishing on in the year 2017, and is a story that explores the genre of LitRPG™[1] (or RPG GameLit) in a HFY[2] context.

I have since decided to rehost it here, thanks to Reddit's introduction of new GDPR-proof Terms of Service[3].

This story also explores the concept of a discrete, logic-based (i.e programmable) magic system.

I'll try not to spoil too much, so go right ahead to the beginning.

Thank you for reading my story, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

  3. Which apparently allow them to do as they wish with my content, including selling it to third parties without my consent, because it's apparently on their platform and thus rightfully theirs from the beginning? Not happening. I'm noping the hell out of there and so should you if you publish any creative content on Reddit. ↩︎
