Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Three infinities above our physical realm, there exists a psychic dreamscape called Conceptua Connecta, where phenomena started as an aetheric blueprint before taking form down here on Earth.

Originally, you had the birds and the bees.  You had grainy sex-ed videos where condoms were rolled over tops of bananas…

And then you had Kent Wayne.


“WHOOO!!!”  I duck low on my thought-formed surfboard, slicing across the crest of an idea-borne wave.  As I pass by other muses and astral entities, I swipe my finger across the tops of their lips, urging them to take a whiff.

Disgusted faces recoil from my hand.  Curses chase me across the imaginal expanse, followed by angry calls to do some real work goddammit, and stop channeling my perverted spirit throughout the interwebs.  I pay them no mind; I’m Kent Effin’ Wayne—Existence’s #1 Sex Muse!  HEE hee hee!

Suddenly, the aether above me rumbles and parts.  A giant, bearded face pokes out from the aperture, its eyes narrowing in clear revulsion.

Oh shit—the Big Guy!

“Kent,” the Big Guy growls.  “You’re stirring up too much shit.  From now on, you’ll work for the Grammar Nazis.”  An enormous hand comes floating toward me, fingers poised to flick me off my board and force-incarnate me into a physical body.

“WAIT!” I scream, holding both hands out.  “Don’t—PLEASE!  Grammar Nazis HURT MY WILL TO LIVE!”

“Give me a reason,” the Big Guy hisses.

“Uh…uh…”  I look wildly around, trying to spot something that will save me from a lifetime of pedantic nitpicking and a pair of withered, flea-sized balls.

“That’s what I thought.”  The disembodied hand starts floating toward me again.

“No, I’ve got something!”  I hold my hand out, palm up, channeling the idea for my science fiction epic called “Echo” through the center of my palm.  It manifests as a twisting burst of spectacular colors.

The hand stops a foot away from me.  “Hmmm…” the Big Guy’s face screws up in thought.  Then he shrugs.  “That’ll work.  Prepare for descent.”

The hand jumps forward and flicks me off my board.  Everything around me fractalizes into a hazy mess of equations and symbols, then—


—I’m in my San Francisco studio, ready to get to work on my manuscript.  But through sheer force of will, I’ve managed to hold onto a bit o’ that Divine Pervert.

Kent Wayne, Professional Man Whore, at your service!
