Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

“What’s up Kent Wayne, you carnivorous-as-fuck dragon, you?”

“Ah, not much Cynosure.”  I flap my big-ass wings a couple of times, riding high on a series of thermals.  “Just ate some knights, defeated a wizard in mind-to-mind combat, and took a giant shit in a human water reservoir.  You know—the usual.”

Cynosure chuckles.  “I love shitting in lakes.  I used to place bets with my friends; we’d pick a target lake without any inhabitants, then we’d each pick a human colony.  We’d keep shitting in the humans’ water reservoirs and forcing them to move.  Whoever made their humans move to the target lake would win the bet.”

“I think I’d be pretty good at that  I can squeeze out twenty or thirty dooks a day.  All about the size of a small village.”

“Damn!”  Cynosure raises a scaly eyebrow.  “The other guys manage ten shits per day…at the MOST!  Let’s partner up!  We could be rolling in treasure!”

“Sure.”  I shrug my bony arches.  “I dook all over the place anyways, so why not?”

“Excellent!”  A gleam of light slides across his slitted pupil.  His lips peel back, revealing his enormous teeth.  “Alright let’s go talk smack to Jinstantophax and—”


We both look down and spot a dozen human sorceresses giving us the finger.


I glance over at Cynosure.  “What the hell?  You piss off some mages?”

An uneasy look.  “Bro, I’ve lived for over twenty-thousand years.  I lose track of who I piss off.”


“Oh SHIT!”  My eyes widen, and puffs of panicked flame burst from my nostrils.  “MY SOCCER MOM EXES!!!  QUICK—LOOSE YOUR BOWELS!”

We relax our sphincters and eject a foul stream of fantasy-world feces.  Half-digested armor and partially dissolved heads come tumbling out our poop chutes, turning the plains below into a reeking Golgotha.

The sorceresses tamp their staves upon the ground and conjure blue-green force fields around their bodies.  “YOU’VE TRIED TO KILL US WITH YOUR FARTS BEFORE, WHEN WE WERE CUDDLING UNDER THE BLANKETS.  IT’S OUR TURN, KENT!”

They raise their staffs at us.  Long streams of weaponized sigils erupt from their ends, coating me and Cynosure in hostile magics.  Cyno gets the brunt of it; he spirals to the ground, his smoking wings wrapped tightly around his carcass.  As for me, my butthole gets singed by a blast of magic missile and cone of frost.  FUCK!

No way I can outmaneuver these eldritch crazies.  So I reach beneath my “carry-scale” (a large scale that’s slitted at the top end, allowing me to conceal various items against my torso) and open my eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

Giant handfuls of romcom blu-rays fill my talons.  I unclench my fingers, and a storm of George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, and Hugh Grant twinkles down from the sky.  The soccer moms can’t help themselves; they scurry back and forth, grabbing as much WASPY humor and heartfelt suburban drama as they possibly can.

Man, I never thought I’d say this, but thank FUCK for romcoms!  Whew!
