A Desert in the Sky is a fiction book starring Harry TheBicepsFlexKilla – a character present in many stories on the site.
Harry is a man trying to survive in a gynocentric world that seems to hate him no matter what. Women and society’s coldness become the main source of his suffering.
Many of the love stories in the book are inspired by what happened to me over the years, especially this summer. Unfortunately, women left me dead inside.
However, I am not Harry. Harry is a collection of many personages, and I just happen to be one of them. Some of the events in the book have never taken place.
If you like A Hater’s Synthesis, you will probably like this book. Both present similar ideas but in two different formats. A Hater’s Synthesis 1 and 2 are philosophical books whereas A Desert In the Sky is realistic fiction.
This is the most emotional book I have written so far.
I dedicate it to all the hearts that find themselves in it.
Thank you for your support and patience.

Excerpt from Chapter 1: The Tinder Cam Whore
The entire three-bedroom apartment was empty, and yet Harry TheBicepsFlexKilla found himself isolated in his room once again as if everybody was present. Hugged by the light of his smartphone connected to an outlet with the help of a 2-meter cable allowing comfortable use of the device while charging, Harry fired up Tinder – a digital drug that had synthesized a lifetime of turbulence within his heart. Despite the accumulated disappointment and pain, Harry couldn’t help himself. His instinct and despair were too strong for the skeleton supporting his dignity and rationality.
Harry was not an ugly guy. Throughout his life, many people, predominantly soccer moms, had even called him handsome on many occasions. Yet he was not doing so well on Tinder. Women on the Internet were mean to him. He would rarely match with a girl that didn’t own the face of a witch and the body of a lard collector. And when that would happen, she would either unmatch him after the first line or make him walk on thin ice only to ghost him a few days later.
To battle the odds, Harry had developed a palette of tactics designed to overcome both – the app itself and the women on it. Why the app? Because it was mean to him too. It offered a paid boost, but the effect was short-lived. He would get a few more matches upon activating the feature during rush hours, but very quickly his account would find itself buried under those of more attractive men since the algorithm of the software seemed to favor the winners – the more women right swipe on you, the more you show.
Harry’s strategy was simple and yet effective – he would delete and remake his profile very frequently to benefit from the initial “new user” status. He had noticed that a fresh account gets more matches than an old one. That morning he’d renewed his.
Tinder captivated the screen, and Harry’s trained eyes lit up instantaneously. Throughout the day, he’d matched with a blonde girl represented by a selfie taken in a bathtub. She looked somewhat insane but wasn’t ugly. Her name was Nottirb. Weird…but who cares? She was almost hot. Her bio said: “A true romantic. I am over tinder hook-ups.”
Harry immediately opened with his default line – “Are you as interesting as you look?”
Her reply was – “What a neggy compliment! Wanna try again?”
Harry hit her back with: “It’s neggy only if you want it to be. Btw you have the face of somebody I would kiss.”
“That’s better,” she wrote.
Nottirb was an American from New York passing through Harry’s homeland. She had many tattoos and was dropping alarming personal facts by the second. Apparently, she was a cam whore. Of course, she didn’t phrase it like that. She wrote: “Lately, I have also been camming (hence my anonymity) but that’s more for fun and creative release.”
