Description

For over a century, a united humanity’s focus was the construction of a massive alien device: The Lariat. Its blueprints were dreamed by a handful of gifted humans who could hear alien voices as they slept. It is miles long, built in close orbit of the sun, and it promises to be a gate to a vast alien civilization. It promises to end humanity’s galactic isolation.

It will open, and a newly promoted Captain Claire Campana’s ship will be key to the ceremony, once it is repaired in the World Navy’s shipyards near the sun. But there is dissent. A member of the black market mob known as the Boliver family begins to doubt the Lariat’s true purpose. And then there are the fragments in time. The 1960s, the 1990s, 2012, where innocent people oblivious to this future live their lives. They connect, somehow, to each other, to the future, to the Lariat.

Mindframe is a genre bending piece of science fiction that weaves seemingly disconnected people through various time streams into one important moment. The moment that changes all of human destiny. The moment the Lariat closes.

The old man lingered in the liminal place that presaged sleep, that space where reality had variable density and fluctuating tactile strength.

Childhood is gone. Illusion is abolished. The world is laid bare, full of unpolished people and unfulfilled destiny. But that is not your concern. Because on your piece of paper there will always be written orders. There are only the orders and the following of the orders. There is only the Lariat, and its closing,...

Give nothing to anybody. See, instead, how they earn it. It was a slogan as old as WorldGov, and one she lead by.  In Chapter three of Mindframe, we start to follow the story of Claire Campana, a newly promoted captain in the World Navy. The World Vote pushed her up in rank, and she has...
– This was a place of tricks of light and illusion; a fourth wall was a delicate thing, easily broken by the crush of the real world, just on the other side of the veil. – Chapter 4 of Mindframe is the beginning of the story arc of Marcellus Ball. Marcellus is the stage manager of a...
– But his family was not a family of sincerity. The Boliver family was not one of straight lines, but of crooked angles, ever askew, always hiding the true intersection of purposes.

– He slid his hand over the hand railing; it was a pure, snow white, and it seemed to anchor The Dame to the whole frosted world around her. Teddy did that. And he would do so much more. He wanted to quit his other projects in the suburbs and stay here in The Dame...
– “That file is directly from Alpha’s desk. It has all of your orders. Though I am delivering them, they do not come from me or the Navy. This is his mission. And, this is of course very sensitive information. Captain Campana, you are now the ninth living person in the entire human race to...
