I Never Metafiction I Didn't Like

“Guys, guys, could we keep it down?” I asked.

“Guys can’t keep it down—that’s always been their problem.” The Amazon warrior was in her usual one-sided form.

“You never let men be equals,” said the spaceport bartender.

“No, but give me a sharp enough sword and I can leave them as equal parts,” she replied.

“Or cleave them into equal parts,” the somebody who wasn’t there chipped in. I should have never gotten a house with stairs. He will probably not be there again tomorrow. Oh, well…

“The Samuel Clemens treatment?” said the six foot seven inch spider. (But only five foot two in height.) She was always spinning out a line.

Everybody tried to ignore it, but still, inevitably—or would it be in ever  Bull-ly, somebody had to snap up the line. “Samuel Clemens treatment?”

“The mark of twain.”

Things were getting out of hand. I had to try to restore a bit of order. “People and non-people, entities, non-entities, and traveling machines with your Turing cards. Please!”

“My lords, ladies, gentlemen, and transgender Scotsmen….,” said a voice.

“…that about covers everything,” said a second voice.

“Not if the Scotsman is nude,” said an unidentified female voice—but definitely not the Amazon.

“Can you easily find a transgender Scottsman,” asked the bug eyed monster?

“Haven’t you ever gone trans-spotting?” asked a voice.

“Baby, you hit the ceiling with that one,” said the same still unidentified female.

“CAN WE HAVE SOME ORDER, PLEASE!” I screamed.

----------I think I heard five BLTs, three ham on rye, and about twenty two hold the mayos.

But at least I now had everyone’s attention. Well, everyone who could be at attention. The blob was still—oh, never mind.

“Look,” I called out, “I brought all of you fictional characters together in this virtual reality group session, beca---“

“YIKES!” A voice rang out.

“I said ‘group’ not ‘grope.’”

“Sorry.”

--that identified the female voice.

“Is everybody here?”

“Dave.”

“Dave?”

“Dave.”

Sigh. I had to keep going. It was expected. “Dave?”

“Dave’s not here.”

“And why is Dave not here?”

“The computer locked him outside again. Called him pod scum.”

Oh, bother.

“Well, somebody get the door unlocked and bring him back in. And will somebody else please put a piece of tape over the computer’s speaker? I am sick and tired of all this HALitosis.”

Dave quietly made his entrance, though he did bounce off of a few walls just to stay in character.

Finally. Finally. Yes, finally I could begin. “I called you all together because I need a good story idea. There is SF writing contest on the internet. ‘Beyond Time’ is its name, and—“

“It’s beyond time. It’s beyond space. It’s beyond man and the human ra—“

“SSSSH!”

“Ooo, Ooo. I—“

“QUIET!”

“Look, I just want to know if anybody has any ideas.”

“Not THAT kind of idea!” I had found her at last and performed a preventive end run.

“Bug Eyed Monster, anything? Any ideas?”

“Look, ever since I got that LASIK surgery, I think tha---“

“OK. Moving on….  Oedipus, how about you. Have anything?”

“Besides a complex?”

“Be still.”

The T-Rex merely shock its head.

“Oedipus T-Rex? Isn’t that an old joke?” asked a voice.

“Well, I’m an old T-Rex.”

“Did you really have sex with your mother?” asked another voice.

“NO! I never! Not in—“

“Sorry. Jurassic silly question and you ge—“

“I, ah… ate my mother.”

“A raptor of the dee—“

“Be still!”

There was a very loud “Mead!” followed by a very loud  “Baaa!” and then the spider blew an equally loud but dazzlingly obnoxious  razzberry.

There was dead silence. Nobody could figure it out.

“OK, we give.” I had to put in.

“Bee still, my bleating fart.”

There were too many groans. That ended everything. Nobody was willing to forgive and Feghoot.

I did not have an idea.

Nothing.

Nada.

Zip.

No bell had rang and I was up the stream of consciousness without a Pavlov.

Eh.

….may as well send this in.

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

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

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Rebecca Nollen: I absolutely loved this story!!! So exciting and the movement of the story was an absolute thrill ride. I hated the ending. I need the second book like tomorrow. Can't wait to share this story with my friends and daughter.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!
