I have invented a new literary Genre, combining Fact/History/Prophecy with Fiction creating tales of Scry-Fy.

Akio Sarazawa, a Kamikaze pilot, dives his bomb laden fighter 90 degrees through a gauntlet of anti-aircraft fire. His target is the rectangular mass of a US Carrier swerving through the Pacific to avoid his crash. Maneuver as it might, it can’t escape. The flight deck rising rapidly before him floats on a wall of ocean, beckoning, as if it is a doorway.
But moments before the pilot meets this portal out of life, he thinks how good it would be not see the future death of his homeland. He is wrong. A devil’s sea has other shocking, touching and altogether absurd surprises waiting on the other side.
“A master storyteller!”
—J.R. Rain, author of Moon Dance and The Body Departed
“John Hogue’s Kamikaze Tomorrowland: A Future Fiction Story (Kindle Edition) is a science- fiction novel enhanced by Mr. Hogue’s non- fiction prophecy. His narrative is easy to enjoy and his character development and plot points were great! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book- and have now passed it to my husband’s Kindle so that he can enjoy it, too. Overall, a good read. With a price of .99 cents, how could anyone go wrong when selecting this title?! Overall, a good book. I know you will enjoy it, too!”
“For 99 cents you can’t go wrong with this story. John Houge uses his mastery of the English language to complement describe the events of this take in a “showing not telling” manner. The plot never disappoints with interesting twist and turns throughout. You end up caring about the characters and intrigued to see what happens to them.”
“I purchased this book several years ago when it was just an e-book and it is still a favorite in my collection. I am delighted to see it is now on Kindle because while I enjoy my Kindle it is not really very good for converting PDF books into readable presentations especially if you are over 50 and need to actually see the print!
“That problem is now solved with this excellent Kindle edition of a great story that shows John Hogue’s writing at it best. While he is more commonly known for his non-fiction books; they have always had a few slides in speculative fiction and what is pretty much future-viewing or science fiction. Those of us in fandom know there is only a very small line between such speculation and a good story and here John brings both together with a tight plot and interesting ending.
“So I have rated this book five stars and encourage everyone to read it, especially if you like just a little bit of woo with your sci-fi.”
“Being compared to the Twilight Zone is an ultimate-compliment remark to me, hope you appreciate it, John Hogue.
“To the rest of you who are maybe considering purchasing this story, it’ll be the best 99 cents you’ll ever spend. I’m a sucker for a good short story and this one had me hooked from the first paragraph.
“I won’t risk any spoilers, but take my recommendation – it’s worth your time.”
WHAT IS “SCRY-FY”?
I define Scry-Fy as a form of prophecy-science fiction and fantasy. It is neither fiction nor non-fiction. Scry-Fy is transfix-tion. ‘Scrying’ is a basic form of divination using objects that, in the hand of the initiate, can reflect the dark shadows of potential future destiny.
Let this new eShort Story Genre be your scrying tool reflecting back a blend of wisdom, fact, fantasy‚ and sometimes‚ real prophecies about true events to come from the ever transfix-tional world of the future.
I launched my writing career with the help of Ray Bradbury as an early mentor. I combine the expertise of 30 years and 22 published books on Nostradamus’ texts and other prophetic traditions with my love of science fiction and fantasy to give rise to this wonderful union of fact, fiction and prophecy in a new and captivating genre.
