Hey everyone, I'm nj, I'm the author of WAYBOUND, a sci-fi short story collection set in a cohesive world.

Here's my most recent longform story.

THE AKROTIRI JOURNALS is a found-footage collection of emails, voice memos, and documents chronicling the 2506 Akrotiri Crisis and its leadup-- the first major flashpoint of the 26th century, as told through the lens of a NASA radio astronomer and a sentient AI colonist who's going through a lot right now.

Now we find ourselves in a world of zombies, mention the word vaccine and their eyes glaze over, the fight or flight response is triggered. They bolt or attack, blind to reason. Once their blood lust is satisfied the zombies retreat to the safety of the herd. A place with no questions and unchallenged beliefs they wallow in their ignorance.

Hi, I'm particularly attached to my "Interdimensional Talks with Mike" series, where we have fictional interviews with people from parallel universes, aliens, ethereal beings, and even artificial intelligence.

This is one of my favorite episodes:

Self-Aware General Artificial Intelligence (Interdimensional Talks - Episode 1)

What would you ask a conscious general artificial intelligence? Below is our conversation.

Hi, I'm writing a sci-fi story called 'Lost in Translation'. It's about a woman who runs away from danger and political upheaval at home, only to find herself stranded on an uncharted alien planet. She'll have to learn to communicate and live with the local species, or find another human who happened to crash into this specific planet. But the latter is pretty unlikely. Right?

Thanks for this opportunity, Brian.

1. 'How the Retrograde Curse was reverse-engineered (and rather spectacularly, too'). published 9/11/2023.

Pitch: Dates are important. Two time travelers are somehow sucked back to a timeline in which they knew each other, the aftermath of 9/11. and reunited on a night parking lot on the outskirts of New York, where they try, vainly, to warn the disaffected youth of future events. The eerie mood of the story is woven of a rich tapestry of former literary and song allusions as well as people and places.

Berthier's Door is an art project in Paris. It's a door mounted on the blank external wall of a building. There's nothing behind it but a blank wall. Or, so people think. What if invading aliens, intending to conqure humanity, have installed a matter transporter behind the door? What if the secret invasion was so far along there was a network of matter transporters scattered over the globe? What if the aliens were working with elements within the government? Who will step up to meet the challenge?

Here's the first chapter of book one of the trilogy. All three books are being released a chapter per week on Substack for free. Book one is completely available, as is the beginning of book two.

Alright. Try this again. There are several stories I have written that I could submit. But I will start with this one https://timrourke.substack.com/p/mask-of-the-blue-death

Mask of the Blue Death. It takes off from a sci fi type novel I am writing, mostly to illustrate some points about Basic Income. I wanted to make some points about the pandemic, for idiots who think it is over, or it just happened by accident.  I also took off from Edgar Allen Poe. It would be nice to know what use your web site makes of it. I think its one of my best pieces.
