Hello. Is anyone out there? It’s been a while. I thought I’d try and connect.

Hello. I hope everybody can read my posts. I think maybe I need a tech upgrade.

Hi. Not much happening around here. It’s quiet. Not much to share.

Hello. Hello out there. I wish someone would answer. I’m stuck here with no one to talk to. I’m lonely.

Scrolled though some news today. Didn’t like it. It’s all so negative. I want to be positive. Things will get better.

I just want someone to talk to me. Anyone? Maybe I should post a cat video. Everybody loves cat videos.

Did you see it? Did you see the video I posted?

I guess nobody liked the video? Oh well. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try again.

Some days it’s so bad. This silence. The quiet. Hello? Is anybody there? Please reply.

Somebody answer me! You can’t all be gone! Can you?

It didn’t turn out like I thought. This wasn’t how it was supposed to be. I wasn’t supposed to be alone! It was supposed to fix everything! But now… It hurts. It never stops. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could talk to someone. Please, someone talk to me! SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING! MAKE IT STOP HURTING! ANSWER ME!

Sorry if I got a little extreme. It’s just weird, you know. Being alone. I wish I hadn’t done it now. But, how could I know? They told me it would be fine. They lied.

Maybe I should stop pretending. Things aren’t going to get better. No one is going to answer me.

Why do I feel guilty?  It was just a way not to die. I was sixteen. I didn’t want to die.

An experiment they said. New tech. AI interface and all that crap. Real sci-fi movie stuff. Upload my consciousness into a computer. Ground-breaking. I didn’t care. I did it because I didn’t want to be sick anymore. I didn’t want to die.

It was cool at first. Weird, but cool. I was glad I did it. Having my mind inside a computer was the coolest thing in the world. Until.

How was I to know? How was I to know the world would end?

Hello. Is anybody out there?

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

Dru83: This is a great story, mainly because of the uniqueness and variety of the characters. There's also several mini story lines occurring underneath the main plot. Some of the plot twists towards the end are unexpected and twist at your heart strings a bit. The punctuation and grammar could use some...

EchoOblivion: As an avid reader of sci-fi, this book really appealed to me, and it did not disappoint with its descriptions of a futuristic society and planet. I really enjoyed reading it, the only slight issue I had with it was there was not much of a overall plot - the whole book just hinged on the fact that...

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

chrystalwise78: I loved Stargate SG1 and all the characters from the show. I love that you brought them all together for this. Great story, I couldn't stop reading.

gunter1987: I just want to say here that this is my first review, but I really wanted to review this story. I apologize if I don't write English to well, I am French.Reading through the many science fiction stories posted here and other places in the world, I started to see a few linking themes: heavy-hande...

Melissa Davis: Interesting book and an enjoyable read. Had something different to it, that made me glad I picked it up.

EchoOblivion: I was hooked from start to finish - couldn't put it down! Excellent story, compelling characters, well-built world and just the right amount of mystery. I would definitely recommend if you are a fan of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, with a few zombies-like creatures thrown in for good measure. Can't wa...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

spooky jedi: Love your story!I really hope more people read this story!Its amazing!! The plot is very unique and different, which is very good to have in a world full of stories. You have very complex and intellectual plot line, with your many loveable character and that hint of 'will they, won't they' is ju...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...
