Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

I’m at the office, playing that age-old game:  how do I silently release a monster fart without alerting everyone, letting them know I’m an animalistic Man Child?

Right now I’m in a meeting, listening to some corporate capo drone on and on about synergy, thinking outside the box, and moving the needle.  Blah-blibbity blah-blah-blah.  I stare blankly ahead, flexing my sphincter out of absolute boredom.

Turtlehead?  Or fart?  Turtlehead?  Or fart?  God this guy’s boring…




Oh no!  I jerk awake, watching as everyone coughs and gags, clawing at their throats with shaking fingers.

Michelle Salzman moans, “HLLLP MEEE!” before keeling over and spasming violently.  Blake Tanner bends at the waist and projectile-vomits, barfing an internal organ before he collapses onto his side.  Katie Powolski shrieks as the skin melts off her face and neck, revealing a lurid patchwork of muscle and bone.

God DAMN you, butthole!  Why were you built with such destructive capability, while also equipped with a pleasurable ring of nerves that invites licking and tickling?  It’s not fair!!!

Fuck it.  No options left.  I open my eReader to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

Stop.  Rewind.  Play.

Time resets to the beginning of the meeting.  My boss pauses, ready to expound on wheelhouses, growth hacking, or whatever new terminology gives the higher-ups boners, but I run out the door before he can start.

“Kent, hey!  I was just about to—”


And THAT is why—in real life—I just retired!  It has nothing to do with the fact that I love afternoon naps or jerking off 3 or 4 times a day, it’s a matter of life and death goddammit—LIFE AND DEATH!!!

  1. What you do now is truly a matter of life or death, to toil away doing some god-awfull shit for someone elses’ gain or live as you should. I for sure wont ruin my life running after material gain, for experience is all I need! And all we have. The rest is Immateria slowly growing into being as we invent them.
    Shame that profits don’t care about passion or creativity..
    Why did you rewind? Let the winds blow and direct us to a world without board meetings!! 😁🤓
