“We need a new name,” Eddie interrupted. “We can’t use the name from before. We need a name that is us.” He looked at Gene. “You’ve been good with names for songs. What about the band?”
Gene shook his head.
“What about you, Suzy?” Eddie asked.
“The stuff we’ve worked up — it’s different,” she said. “It’s not quite… it’s not like we’ve invented something entirely new, but we’ve taken what was and made it something else.”
Laurel nodded. “It feels to me like the music has grown naturally this way, like it evolved.”
“Evolution has a nice ring to it,” Erik said on his way to the beer chest. He popped the cap off a bottle and offered it to Laurel before grabbing one for himself.
“I like it,” Eddie said. “But I’m not sure… does that one word say it all?” Suzy sat back, her eyes closed, listening to some inner music of her own as she sipped from her flask.
“What is the band, really?” I whispered into Eddie’s mind again. “In the big picture, in your heart and soul, what is it for?”
“I don’t know,” Eddie said out loud, unwittingly responding to me. “In my heart, what I hear is something more than just different music. Something bigger, something more. The name should convey something….” He waved his fingers in the air. Music was his way of communicating, not speech.

Evolution Device is the story of British rock guitarist Eddie Edmunds in the wild times of the 1970s. His muse, Lily, is an entity of pure energy drawn into physical existence by what some might call magic. She is the only one who recognizes the other side of the energies that Eddie flirts with: if he doesn’t face the music, all the drugs in the world won’t shield him from the danger of uncontrolled power.
This baby’s been a long time coming. My first file save was in 2011, so the late summer release date will make it a 9 year labor.
Evolution Device will be published under the Positronic Publications Imprint, which has published authors like George R. R. Martin, Harlan Ellison, and Roger Zelazny.
I’m SO EXCITED!!!
