Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

“Kent Wayne!  It is NOT acceptable to defecate into an upside down frisbee!  Pull your pants up and go to the principal’s office!”

Ahhhh!!  Fuck THAT!

I yank my shorts up and tear across the playground.  Mr. Mathers chases after me, his bespectacled face red with rage.  I just turned eleven man—what’s with all these goddamn rules???  When I wasn’t a teenager, I could do whatever the fuck I wanted and people thought it was cute, but now it’s a completely different—

“WHOOF!”  Mathers tries to tackle me, but I dive right and manage to avoid his arms.  Scramble up a slide, kick-push off the corner, and—


—land heavily on Mathers’s upper back, drawing another “WHOOF” from his sputtering lips.

“Fuck your old man rules and your old man balls!” I yell as I run toward the soccer field.  “Ain’t no ADULTING for Kent fucking Wayne—you serious, bro???”

I hear Mathers calling for backup.  Suddenly, there’s like a dozen schoolmarms hot on my heels.  I may be a young, strong-as-fuck boy full of cum-on-your-face hormones, but the weight disparity is too damn big—their institution-neutered bodies are nearly twice the size of mine.  Only a matter of time before they tackle my ass and rot my brain with societal norms.

So I open my eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

My limbs and torso erupt with muscles.  In a matter of seconds, I’ve transformed into my hirsute, strapping, thirty-year old self.  As I approach the twenty-foot chain-link, I yank my shorts down, plunge the tip of my stripper-pole-sized wiener into the ground, and—


—vault over the fence, throwing a double middle finger at my pursuers at the apex of my leap.  As  I land on the ground, my teachers slam up against the fence, bowing it outward and sending a metallic jingle ringing through the air.  I turn around and keep running, a mile-wide grin plastered across my face.

“DAMN YOU, KENT WAYNE!”  Mathers’s fist crashes against the fence.  “DAAAAAAAMMMMMN YOOOOUUUUUuuuuu…”

Music to my ears, muh’fuh.  Kent Wayne escapes again!  Ha HA!  😀

  1. Hey, just wanted to say that I picked up your book on kindle. I have only been following your for about a week now, but I really enjoy your creative writing style. It’s fun to read. Congratulations on all the success. I leave a review when i finish Echo Vol. 1

    • Hey thanks so much for that, man! I have to apologize for my noobery in Echo 1, and I apologize for the cliffhanger. It was kind of an experiment in the beginning to see if anyone would like my stuff at all, which is why I priced it as low as possible. I promise that it gets smoother and more intense if you stick with the story. 🙂


      • No worries man you have skill regardless and your voice comes through well. I understand the feeling though. The first book i published was to prove to myself that i could and looking back from then to now, it feels like a different person wrote it. Which is a good thing in a way it means we are growing. I have already really enjoyed the first chapter.

      • I totally get what you’re saying. I really don’t think I’ll go back and revise books, but I made an exception for Echo 1 and did it two years after I published it, because I didn’t want such a disparity in style and skill from book 1 to book 4. At the same time, that was only because it’s one story from beginning to end. If I did that for every book, I would never write a new book, because I can literally spend an entire hour on one page or a paragraph, fussing with my word choice.😅And thanks again for the compliment. I make pennies on the hour doing this stuff, so positive feedback means the world. I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. I’m pretty busy grinding with life duties and book stuff, so feel free to email me at if there’s something specific you want me to do for your book stuff. It’s not an imposition at all.

      • Thank you for that offer, I will definitley take you up on it. I am currently writing my 3rd book and the world of self publishing is turning out to be a whole new landscape to navigate the terrain presents it self as an easy trot but turns into a death trap if you dont know what you are doing. I am trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can, because I dont want to stop writing. I love it and the book ideas seem to be flowing. It is finding an audience that I am struggling with. But I just started publishing 3 months ago. Thanks again for the info. Finished chapter one last night pretty freaking awesome stuff man. I love seeing people push the envelope. Excited to read more. Oh and thanks for your Service.

      • Yeah, fo sho Matthew; happy to help! Yeah, self-publishing IMO is all about just doing the best you can and letting the chips fall where they may. I’ve driven myself crazy strategizing about this result at this time, but the entertainment industry is so damn fickle. Thanks for YOUR service!

  2. Oh boy could I tell you about some doozeys that have happened at school. There was a girl who tried to climb a fence to truant and slipped and impaled her leg on one of the fence spikes and had to have the section of fence cut away so she could be taken to hospital.
    It wasn’t at the campus I was at, but I friggen laughed even though it was pretty shit. I was like “well, it wouldn’t have happened if she just stayed where she was supposed to”
    Oh and at a different school, a kid got suspended for taking a dump behind a tree. Hahaha. Omfg

    • OOH! Ouchie! I’ve seen a guy get impaled through the forearm by a giant splinter from a fall on an obstacle course, and I’ve seen a dude take a dook in his wetsuit on a long ocean swim, but your stories are a helluva lot funnier, LOL!
