Imaginary Me

“Who am I?”

I ask Sammy Pruitt that question all the time. She’s a four-year-old girl who imagines me. I’m whoever she wants and whatever she needs. I’m her imaginary friend.

She definitely needs me, because there’s an evil queen who hates her. She treats Sammy in a way no parent ever should. And Sammy’s trapped living with her.

But Sammy and I have a plan. A way to forever rid life of the evil queen and be happy. It’ll take hard work, imagination, and courage to reach our goal. That’s why Sammy imagines me.

Because I’m her protection and the means to her escape.

Futan Vice: The Trouble On Drabble

Tucked away in a remote corner in the basement of a large building, a man from Earth examines traffic patterns. This man’s name is Matt Cotter. He likes to be left alone. He likes his job. And he definitely likes being on his home planet.

But Matt Cotter can’t control everything he likes. For instance, maybe a being from another planet (an intelligent one at that (intelligent being not an intelligent planet)) visits Matt at work and invites him to a planet called Drabble.

And maybe, just maybe, that being wants Matt Cotter to help him solve a crime that hasn’t happened yet. Why would this being want that? Because Matt Cotter is so good at solving traffic problems by seeing patterns, he must be able to do the same with pre-crime.

Can Matt Cotter solve the case? There’s one way to know if he does. Think about it … almost there. Yes! … That’s how to find out!

In order to make it through safely, they must work together. And a unique ability they never imagined possible—the Infinite ability—may be the one thing that helps them reach their goal.

Miscorrection: Preludes

It is a time of great change for the solar system. A group of rebels called the Karhath plot to take control of the planets.

A man named Daniel threatens to make the Karhath mission a failure by means of his wise, yet risky political moves.

Even if Daniel should succeed, the Karhath will do whatever is possible to achieve the power they desperately want.

Miscorrection: Dimensions


The Karhath Empire assassinated President Daniel and took control of the six-planet system 200 years ago. Their rise to power marked the end of peace and prosperity.

A secret rebellion called the Diamonds has found a way to travel to alternate realities. They are in search of a reality where the Karhath never gained power, hoping to discover a way to end their regime.

For Jago, a Diamonds' agent, the task is more important than anything because the Karhath cruelly murdered his parents. But when Jago disagrees with the Diamonds' decision to end the Karhath Empire, he must choose to follow them or take his own path.

Miscorrection: Times

After escaping imprisonment by the Diamonds, Jago has one purpose: Figure out a way to time travel to the past and ensure the assassination of President Daniel happens. The mission betrays not only the Diamonds but also his parents, who died by Karhath hands.

Completing the task will benefit all humanity. It’ll bring peace for centuries to come in a way no one could predict. This is how Jago lives with the choice he’s made.

Traveling into the past will be difficult. Jago has neither the resources or the means to finish his self-assigned mission. He is alone.

With no ally to turn to, Jago must work with his enemy—the Karhath—in order to bring the end of their empire and peace to the six-planet system.
