What is this place?

Welcome! You’ve reached Field Research, the humor and satire publication written and produced by me, Amran Gowani.

I’m an organic chemist turned Wall Street analyst turned full-time stay-at-home-dad and writer. My debut novel Leverage will be published by Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, in Summer 2025.

Surreal, I know.

What do I get for signing up?

At least one post per month, delivered via email or app, which will include a humor piece, satire spot, parenting riff, gonzo report, short fiction story, or personal essay.

You’ll also find links to content I created in other channels (e.g., YouTube videos), periodic updates on my longform projects, and juicy details from my literary adventures.

What will it cost me?


The majority of my new posts are free to read — the archive is paywalled — and I rely exclusively on the “patronage” model for monetary support.

Sign up for free and you’ll receive:

  • Occasional pieces of dark humor or razor-sharp satire, plus periodic updates on my writerly endeavors

Make twelve monthly payments of $6.00 ($72.00 total), or a one-time payment of at least $60.00, and you’ll receive:

  • Lifetime access to all future paywalled posts — as in all paywalled posts forever

  • Lifetime access to the full archive of 135+ stories, and counting

  • Experimental fiction and satirical stories too dangerous for global distribution

  • Other fancy benefits as I dream them up

FFS can't you see this sign up button?

Fine, I’m in. What else do you do?

Lots of dope AF stuff across the interwebs, which I hope you’ll check out.

On YouTube, I do periodic deep dives on books, movies, TV shows, video games, podcasts, and other media. Visit my channel and subscribe by clicking HERE.

On Instagram, I review and recommend books, connect with readers and fellow writers, create hilarious Reels, and share #bookporn. Follow me by clicking HERE.

My personal website includes a detailed biography, contact information, links to past media appearances, and updates on Leverage’s perilous and protracted march toward publication. Learn more by clicking HERE.

Parting thoughts?

Thanks in advance for your support and engagement!
