Mercury's Wake – Before Chaos

Mercury's Wake is a story of chance encounters and cosmic chaos.

Before Chaos - the first book in the series. An audio drama podcast for adventurers and risk takers.

We landing.

Welcome to Vegas and a very long weekend, that is to say, welcome to the fictional metaverse of Mercury’s Wake where the paranormal, alien encounters, parallel universes, quantum jumping, and karmic destiny can’t hold a candle to the gamble of real life – a story that has a stickiness of a comedic-sci-fi soap opera on steroids, telling the before-and-after of an unforeseen tragedy.

Hitch a ride as we move from London to New York City, Connecticut, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Kentucky, Texas, and the Nevada Desert, oh, and Mars.

Before Chaos follows the stories of 7 characters, over one weekend at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas Nevada.

The Journey Continues. Stay Tuned!
