Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Urgh.  Kent hungo.  Kent need to feed.

Ruuuhhh…Urrrr….walk outside.  Look for food.  Nothing around.  Neighborhood is bad.  All full of zombie.  Everything rusty.  Nothing work.

Ruuuhhh…walk some more.

My name Zombie Kent.  Many years pass since I go pee-pee, or eat the Cheeto or Dorito.  Now I eat fresh human.  No taste good, but taste better than other stuff.


Wait—what that?  Little dog, scampering across floor.  Tiny 10 lb. terrier.  Does Kent know dog?  Looks familiar…

Does not matter.  Dog is food.  Taste worse than human, but still food.


And then little dog opens eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

My body regenerates from the inside out—organs swell up, blood starts pumping, and fresh skin crawls across my desiccated limbs.  In a matter of seconds I’m my old self:  Kent Wayne—sci-fi author and idiot Man Whore.

BOOYAH, bitches!

“Rowf Urf Arfologist!”  Bitefighter—my 10 lb. terrier, best buddy, and 83rd level intellect—exclaims.

“What’s that buddy?  You can cure the world?”  My eyes widen in astonishment.

He sits a little taller, and his swishy little tail tics back and forth.  “Roof roof McRowf!”

“AND you’ve managed to unite general relativity and quantum physics?”  My eyes widen further.


“Then let’s go!”  I wave my arm excitedly and take off running.  My little buddy stays abreast, churning his nubby little legs as fast as he can.  Man, this is awesome!  We’re gonna save the world AND induce a science-changing paradigm shift!

(And along the way, I’m gonna seduce me a boatload of Soccer Moms!  Ha HA!)
