It was just a hoverboard. Nobody was supposed to die. 

Dale Adams has worked hard to leave his troubled past behind for a brighter future at Emory University. But when he makes a discovery that will change humanity forever, avoiding the spotlight becomes the least of his concerns. 

Small experiments have attracted big attention. And not all who notice want Dale to be successful. Or even alive. 

As Dale's world collapses around him, his fate intertwines with that of a girl he hardly knows. Their only hope for survival is to disappear into Atlanta's seedy underbelly, the very place Dale has tried so hard to leave behind. Time is running out, but if they can survive long enough science will be rewritten by the most unlikely of authors.

About the author

Yes, Mitty Walters is a pen name. It's a tribute to the classic, not the recent. When I read that story, I was a homeless teenager who was never sure where he would be sleeping the next night. I had an instant connection with Walter Mitty. But I always felt like his dark reflection. Walter's wild fantasy life helped him to escape his boring reality. But my fantasy was just to have a boring reality. 

Too bleak? Fine. 

The truth is I joined the Merchant Marines when I was fifteen. When they asked for ID, I gave them my dead cousin's birth certificate. Next thing I knew I was on a bus headed to Savannah. When I hopped my first freighter, my heart was filled with all kind of romantic notions. But three straight days of puking cajoled me back to reality. I didn't set foot on land for another four months.

The Merchant Marine is not some mysterious gateway to adventure for young lads. It's just work, sweat, and misery. I didn't get marooned on any island, didn't rescue any damsels in distress. I just toiled away pointlessly. The most adventure I had was getting arrested in Thailand with a bunch of drunken idiots that I didn't even know. I learned to speak a little Cantonese while I was in there, though. I wasted away for a eighteen months, until the riots began.

Crap. Too bleak again?

Look. You can be honest. You don't care who I am. You just want to go on wild ride. I'm cool with that. Let's do dis, yo. Just pick up the book and let's bounce.

Vladimir Weaver's new trilogy the 13+1

It is unsure if our story takes place in the distant future or remote past. The only thing certain is that 13+1 takes us to planet Mynodis.

After numerous cataclysms, people start a seemingly calm period, where everyone’s work is necessary, and everybody can live a good life in relative security and recognition. But what lies under the surface? If you could live a life where you are never sick, hardly age and have the chance to live forever, what would you do for it? Would you sacrifice your whole life in return?

You can get into 13 classes, where the gap between the standards of living in the lower ones and the higher ones is inconceivable for average people.

Ree Vox was born into the class of the poorest. Once in life, everybody can choose between good and bad, rich and poor life. After that, there is no way to change classes.

Ree decided to live a happy but humble life with his love, but nothing happens as planned.

But there might be something that is worse than death! Is immortality the most one can wish for?

Excitement, adventure, love, fight, and everything you can imagine. Sit down and brace yourself, it begins!


" It’s an understatement when I say I was astounded, when my friend Vladimir, whom I have known for not less than 15 years, announced that he had finished his science-fiction novel, and would be happy to send it to me to read. And he did so without any pomposity, with his natural phlegm. Only talented people are capable of this: they are not the slightest surprised by their extraordinary achievements. Of course, writing a book is only a considerable achievement, if it has a value, or at least it entertains. Ree Vox’s adventure in a chaotic world unknown to today’s man is exciting, moving, and captivating at the same time. The author’s creativity is mixed with deep understanding of the science-fiction world, thanks to which he makes the story plausible, maintains the reader’s attention incessantly, and at occasions, he stretches the reader’s nerves to the breaking point. Due to our friendship, it is hard to assess the book objectively, but I am convinced that I can heartily recommend the book for reading! "

István Major Jr. Director of Alba Regia Symphonic Orchestra

" As a fan of the fantasy genre, before reading the sci-fi novel 13+1, I felt like a camel when being offered bacon. But after reading it, I simply loved it! It’s incredibly exciting. When is the second part finished? I want Amy! :) "

A bookworm

" It’s so good to fly to Mynodis every morning. Yes, I looked forward to being there with Ree Vox, to experience this unique atmosphere, to taste this greatly envisioned world! I love its characters; they’ve become my acquaintances. I’d proudly fight on Ree’s side, shoulder to shoulder, and happily flirt with any of the female characters, because they are all extraordinary and beautiful… The exciting story lines, the author’s unique humour, the well-developed, graphic characters and the whole imaginary geography and technical world! … I miss it all. When can we fly again? "

Sieradzan Sebastian Jerzy Head of Szivárvány Törzs Public Benefit Organisation

" A great book; when reading it, you feel like you are indeed outside the Earth, and when you get out of the spell of reading, you do not at all feel like returning to the Earth. Itisan excellent way of entertainment; I recommend it to everybody. "

Gábor Fidler Chief Advisor, Former School Headmaster
