Bandonn FarPacer just wants to enjoy his vacation on the paradise moon Figuola. But mysterious robotic beings are spying on him and his friends everywhere they go. What are they? And why do they look so familiar to him?

The Consortium. A supposed "utopia" where thousands of planets benefit from financial and cultural unity. Where neurological experiences and emotions are converted to energy via mysterious orbs. Where travel from one end of the galaxy to the other in mere hours is possible thanks to the dimension called The WhereHow. Where a mysterious being named The Siron, a god to some, an alien tyrant to others, makes all the diplomatic decisions for planetary relationships.

Spotov, a planet ravaged by civil war, is about to become part of The Consortium. But first, Spotov's Advocate must be announced. When an imposter claims to be Spotov's Advocate, three friends--Bandonn, Edom and Durso--find themselves caught in the middle of the planet's political crisis. Someone wants them dead.

Traption is the fourth episode of The Consortium Series. Each installment shares the fast-paced adventures of a group of young people with mysterious powers who must save Spotov from the False Advocate or die trying.

About the Author

I can’t help it. I’m a born nerd. I have loved science fiction since I came home from school, turned on the television and watched reruns of Lost in Space. Then I graduated to Star Trek. I still remember going to the theater with my dad and brother and watching Star Wars. My dad said he had no idea what the movie was about. But I loved it.

Moving on to literature, when I read Dune in middle school, it changed my attitude about reading. From there it was Anne McCaffrey’s dragon books. My friends and I shared copies of the original Elfquest graphic novels on the school bus.

Don’t ask me who my favorite author is. I have more than one and I appreciate each of them for different reasons. But some science fiction and fantasy authors who have influenced me include: Dan Simmons, Frank Herbert, Connie Willis, Vernor Vinge, C. S. Lewis, Neil Gaiman, Madeleine L’Engle, and … I could go on until lunchtime.

Oh, and non-science fiction and fantasy authors I enjoy are: John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Cormac McCarthy and Anne Lamott.

So I’m writing episodes based on this universe I’ve created in my mind. It’s called Consortium. I’m having fun writing them, but it’s hard work. Be sure to check them out.
