Join Octavian, the often grumpy magician, and Replika, the endlessly excitable robot, in the latest installment of Tales of a Vernian Youth! They’ve stumbled into an alternate reality of robots who — as it turns out — are wary of squishy organics ever since Octavian’s mentor, Teacher, swiped some of their tech. Talk about awkward!

Now, desperate to gain the robots’ trust (and avoid getting turned into scrap metal), our duo takes on the task of completing Teacher’s work on the robots’ Independence Project. But independence from what, you ask? Well, that’s the million-reality question! Get ready to meet a cast of colorful robot characters who will tug at your heartstrings and make you want to scream…in binary code.

As Replika and Octavian navigate this bewildering world of logic and gears, they’ll unravel secrets that will make your circuits sizzle. Brace yourself for a science fantasy adventure that will have you guffawing, gasping for air, and questioning the very fabric of the cosmos! Hold on tight—this wild ride through laughter and cosmic contemplation is one you won’t soon forget!

The Tales of a Vernian Youth series is about diverse characters exploring unique worlds where they learn about magic, friendship, and OPP (other people’s problems). Their quest to return to their home reality takes them to destinations that are sometimes wildly different from and other times all too similar to their magical world.

Experience characters described by readers as “refreshing” and a writing style compared to Douglas Adams in this exciting series of tales full of humor, adventure, and stuck doors.

What readers are saying:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Wonderfully Addictive

“How dare you write such wonderfully addicting tales? I can’t wait for more. Keep the tales coming.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Amazing imagination

“Loved the characters. Octavian is not typical and quite refreshing. Can I be Replika in my next life?! Who do I need to speak to?”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – A whirlwind of adventure, magic and belly laughs

“Gaius Augustus went above and beyond this story. I felt like Dorothy being wooshed away to Oz when I started Tales of a Vernian Youth. Thoroughly crafted world, rich (and quirky) dialogue, the vision and craftmanship are on point. I believe Gaius must have some magic truly, because this story has cast a spell on me. Standing ovation! Quick, don’t be stuck in a universe where you haven’t read this… !”

“This is a highly inventive and charming story.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Well Written and Intriguing

“Good world building with a splash of mystery and magic. Interesting read!”
