For those of you who may not have read my recent posts, consisting of chapters 1-4 of The Various Futures of Farlo Breeze, the following synopsis contains a crucial spoiler, so you may not want to read on.
I’ve wanted to post this for a while, and it is in part why I have posted the previous chapters. If you have read them, or if you’re one of those prone to skipping ahead of a book, or even reading the last page, just in case you die before you’ve reached it, feel free to step through the post’s door via the Read More tag below.

Farlo Breeze is an up and coming hotshot working with RepliTech, the world’s leader in Replication Technology. Or so he thinks, until the day he loses his job, and then his apartment, and falls into a week-long coma.
When he awakens, the world is drastically altered. He finds Earth has been relocated to the Central Business Galaxy of the universe and joined to the Federation of Galaxies, and the planet is overrun with alien tourists hell-bent on touching a human.
His salvation arrives in the form of his future self, who has returned to the past to warn him of their future and the fate of the universe. Before he can divulge the nature of the approaching threat, however, Future Farlo is found assassinated in a Galactic Burgers’ toilet cubicle. Now, with a string of bounty hunters and the Federation Guard hot on his tail, Farlo must somehow defeat his own apathy, save existence within three days and discover who killed his future self before he meets the same fate.
The Various Futures of Farlo Breeze is a humorous speculative fiction journey through space and time in the vein of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Red Dwarf. It is the first installment of A Series of FOG, and is a tale of cause and effect and its causes, not recommended for those who like their sci-fi dry.
