Several years (a decade at least, maybe longer) ago I read a science-fiction story on a blog and I have been trying to find it, but my google-fu is failing me. I remember the following facts:

  • It was published online in a blog (I want to say blogspot, but not so sure about that)
  • At the start the main character has amnesia and is in a mental hospital
  • Main character gathers a crew around him to discover who he was
  • Main character's identity is fake and was bought from somebody else
  • Main character is (slowly) revealed to be an evil mastermind who used a horrific Doomsday weapon
  • Activation of said weapon was a small robotic bird
  • One of the safeguards to the weapon is a maze, which checks how you try to solve it
  • Androids (which have some sort of biological growth process when they are young) are present
  • The androids have the wiped memories
  • A monkey gearhead (gets killed in his rec room by fudging with the gravity)
  • There's a trial at the end where he's "punished" by getting his old memories back

It's possible that it is no longer online. I have the distinct idea that the author was looking into publishing it or that several publishing houses had expressed interest.

    Can you tell us what "some years ago" means? Like two years ago or ten?

It's Simon of Space. Found it through a Darth Vader diary by the same author.
