My other writing isn't collected in one place, but here's a shopping list for finding the best of it:
- Greg Swann writes – fiction and early essays.
- PresenceOfMind.net – a weblog I maintained in the early years of the new millenium.
- BloodhoundBlog – a national real estate weblog I started and contribute to. Much of the content there will be real estate related, but everything I write is focused on the self, and this is best represented in the longer essays.
- SelfAdoration.com – a weblog devoted to the philosophical defense of ontologically-consonant egoism.
- Why would anyone get married? To live the highest expressions of Splendor in the fully-human life.
- Where have all the good men gone? You’ll find them where their values are appreciated and admired.
- When the New Left becomes the Old Reich, it’s time to get a gun.
- Going Galt with style: By choosing so admirably, Richard Nikoley sets a good example for us all.
- The perfect life and beautiful death of a gangly little mermaid.

I speak your language
I am delighted to speak anywhere, anywhen, and I am interested in any opportunity you can come up with for me to evangelize egoism. I am rich in ideas that, so far, few of us seem to prize. If you value the idea of Splendor in the way I do, let's talk about how we can increase our numbers.
