The Reality Engineers: Volume 1: What Happens At Con Stays At Con


Lonely inventor Terry “Gadget” Anders spends most of his time in his garage nerding out and trying to create real-life versions of the stuff in his comic books…with mixed results. What he needed was a little adventure in his life . . . but when his cosplaying friends “Buffy” and “Angelus" drag him out of the house to a local sci-fi convention, he runs into more adventure than he bargained for, in the form of the beautiful and equally nerdy Dizzy . . . and sparks fly like there’s an overloaded Tesla Coil. But Gadget’s new crush is full of secrets, and some of them are dangerous.

When people start dying at the convention, Gadget gets sucked into Dizzy’s crazy-chaotic world of aliens, time travel, and mind-melting psionic powers. If he can’t put the truth together fast, then the mysteries his femme fatale hides might wind up killing him and his friends, too! Hey, nobody ever said new relationships are easy . . . but if he plays his Magic cards right, Gadget just might be able to win the girl and help save the world just in time to catch the big celebrity panel at the con. Put on your best cosplay and tune-up your guitars folks, ‘cause this is gonna be the best RetCon EVER!

About the Author

Author Name : William A. Hainline

     William Andy Hainline currently lives in New Albany, Indiana with a big old lazy tomcat named Kitty-Boy, where in his spare time he practices being a supervillain and an English major. He is constantly coming up with new and exciting ways to butcher the English language, but his favorite way to do so is writing novels. He enjoys science-fiction, fantasy, and horror, and is a sucker for grand, romantic musicals. When he isn’t plotting to take over the world, he spends most of his free time reading, writing, hanging out with friends, and tinkering with his Mac. (Which is totally not a euphemism for something else.) Some of his favorite toys include Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro X, and the best writing program in the world, Scrivener. He is a big fan of Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fringe, and Doctor Who, and he is active on both Facebook and Twitter, where his handle is @wahainline.

Latest Poem

Where are your bones, I wonder?

Your dust, your last breath?

I see you queued with your mates

In your final military assembly:

            Bates next to Beasley

            Gillum next to Green

            And so on.

It is a moment captured forever in brass letters,

The year scuffed and barely legible.

How does a hero sleep?  Do you dream of past valor?

Or soft shoulders and tender kisses lost forever?

This once hallowed ground is swathed in weeds,

Cannons and missiles rusted and impotent,

The fence sagging with age.

People pass by, but nobody sees.

Even the names have become ghosts.
