Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

I sit down and open my laptop to plink out my daily word count, when I momentarily procrastinate (as all good writers will find themselves doing) and check out the latest news.  Apparently, an international accord has been reached:  for the first time, leading scientists have bred a Grammar Nazi with a Vegan and they’re currently monitoring its…my eyes widen and I slam my laptop shut.  I run to my closet to get my apocalypse gear—basically just a small backpack filled with essentials and a pistol—but just as I’m slapping it on, an unholy screech rolls across the heavens.  I draw the pistol, half-rack it to make sure I’ve got one in the pipe, and bring it tight to my chest.  Lightning flashes, thunder crashes, and I see a bespectacled head come snaking around the corner.  A long, reptilian neck stretches out behind it.  I punch the gun out and start unloading, but the rounds only plink off the thing’s skin in sparking flashes.  It rumbles laughter and says, “The few seconds I was in gestation I thought of YOU, Kent.”  The rest of its cave-spiderish body comes crawling around the corner.  It lifts one, pale extra-jointed set of fingers into the air and points at my face.  “And now?  Now you will SUFFER!”  Lightning slices through the air as it rushes me.  I stumble backward and open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  Anthony Bourdain shoots down from the heavens like a sniper’s bullet.  His feet crash directly through the abomination’s thorax, spilling insect-juice all across my apartment.  He starts maowing down on the twitching remains of the beast before me, commenting on “notes in the flavor” and the “umami taste.”  I shake my head in disbelief; he was JUST the right guy for this…have you seen his show?  This dude eats everything!

If you’re ever assaulted by some unholy half-breed spawned from different factions of the Over-righteous, protect yourself with a dude who probably has, at one point or another, eaten every kind of meat.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle  Vol. 3 on Kindle here:  Vol. 3 on Kindle
