Here’s the first edition of our first short story, quietly launching on iBooks only for now. This quick read combines the imaginative concept of changing one’s fate with a new-adult level of navigating a mysterious life. Animator-style printing and colorful illustrations give this quick read a real adult-swim, comic book store feel. This should make a very cool series, can’t wait to write the next one! 🙂
The Navigator begins in a seedy beachside bar in Santa Cruz. Some college students are hitting on an attractive surfer girl while she tries to study quantum physics. As the guys try to impress her with their knowledge, a drunken, homeless old man named Killian attempts to come to her rescue. He stumbles, trembles, and is suddenly as sober and articulate as a graduate school professor! Killian proceeds to disprove the college boys’ theory, and expand on his own, shocking everyone. Eva is fascinated, and invites Killian to a drink. In return, he explains how he can trek through different dimensions to find other versions of his life.
Eva is thrilled enough to follow her new study subject, nursing him through the pain and suffering from the dimensional transfer with alcohol and a “medicinal” stogie. Killian admires her beauty, and lets her interview him about multiple dimensions and how he can navigate them. An odd friendship forms. Killian has another episode with Eva at the pier, and she starts to see him as a victim of his own gift. She continues to help, without revealing the real reason she cares about him.
