The First Untrue Trilogy (Untrue Tales from Beyond Fiction - Recollections of an Alternate Past, #1-3)

The book’s full title(s):

The First Untrue Trilogy: Untrue Tales from Beyond Fiction – Recollections of an Alternate Past, Book One: An Introduction To Dodgeball or Conception and Induction or How To Begin An Apocalypse, Book Two: The Twofold Invasion or Penetration and Destruction or How to Make Love With Twins, and Book Three: Escape From Exile or Confusion and Contraction or How To Get Out Of Hell

From the back cover:

A teenage boy’s daydreams and fantasies are the key that unlocks a world of magic, psychic communication, and threats he’d never imagined. Discovering he’s accidentally impregnated a classmate he’s never touched sets a chain of events in motion leading from kidnapping to attempted rescue, then literally into Hell.

Whether being attacked by the teachers he’s supposed to be able to trust, seduced by beautifully identical sisters with sinister intent, psychicly crippled by sympathetic birth pains, or forced to play a rigged game against the Devil in order to win his friends’ freedom, Trevor’s every move is dictated by the compulsion to find love.

Sexual love, brotherly love, parental love, naive love, polyamourous love, self-love, love of learning, love of freedom, and unconditional true love that breaks all boundaries and opens new doors are all part of Trevor’s journey in The First Untrue Trilogy, and he is not the only one whose love plays a part in its unfolding events.

The first half of the Untrue Tales From Beyond Fiction – Recollections of an Alternate Past series is a gradual unfolding of hidden truths, a walk from ignorance to intimacy, with secret societies, afterlife realities, and gender identities. It will set you on a collision course with the second half, in which reality unfolds twice as fast.

About the Author

Teel is an independent author, artist, creative visionary, blogger, publisher, podcaster, and sometimes filmmaker.

Teel denies claims by certain members of the underworld and a particular “pope” in the “Holy Roman Church” that the Trevor character from his Untrue Tales From Beyond Fiction series is modeled after his own adolescence, and goes on to assert that as far as he knows he hasn’t yet put the world in as much danger as his own reproduction would imply or saved mankind from any religious organizations trying to take over the world.  The fact that he also refers to the entire series as included in his ongoing attempt to document his life in memoirs is an idea that should not be considered a contradiction of this.

Teel has semi-publicly stated that any and all inquiries regarding the management and operations of the underworld should be directed to your deity or deities of choice in triplicate, whereupon the goldenrod copy will go through the appropriate channels and eventually make its way into his hands and/or compost heap.  The fact that he acknowledges that the suggestion has been made by certain off-world corporate interests that this book series represents a breach of the terms of his exile should not be considered admission of any guilt on Teel’s part.

Teel is happily married to an English teacher and they live together in Phoenix, AZ with a cat which does not appreciate having Teel read his books aloud to it nearly as much as you probably would. While satisfied with never having to shovel the desert’s heat from his driveway, Teel is interested in experiencing more travel in his life—especially of sorts like “through time” and “to other planets,” so feel free to invite him along if you’re going.

Book One: An Introduction to Dodgeball
-or- Conception and Induction
-or- How to Begin an Apocalypse

  • Episode 1 – In which Trevor has a vivid sexual fantasy that the object of his imagination seems to experience as well, and the next day gets ready for and then walks to school, letting his imagination wander to a particularly ominous vision of himself being watched in an unusual, magical way, on his way there.
  • Episode 2 – In which Hannah experiences the most disastrous of mornings, ending up hospitalized, Trevor begins exploring the most mundane details of other people’s daily lives in his imagination with remarkable clarity, and two doctors make an unethical decision regarding Hannah’s unexpected medical mystery.
  • Episode 3 – In which Trevor takes a journey of the mind, hopping from person to person and place to place at a thought, growing better and better at getting into the innermost thoughts of other people, and finally reaching the mind of Betty, one of his classmates, to try to learn what he imagines she thinks of him.
  • Episode 4 – In which Trevor is transported magically by Sqrat to a school he’d thought he’d only imagined existed, learns he’s to be a student there, and quite suddenly finds he knows more than enough magic -and the world’s secret history- to be able to fit in come Monday morning.
  • Episode 5 – In which Trevor gets ready for his first day at his new school with only a couple of missteps before he makes it out his front door, makes a good first impression in the hallway before class, and then finds himself fitting in and performing well during first hour.

  • Episode 8 – In which Trevor and his compatriots too easily overcome the congregants of the church they’d thought was their target, meet a large two-headed woman who explains how wrong they were and who puts the challenge ahead into perspective, then inform the second wave of their invading force of wizards and warriors of their revised plans.

An Introduction to Dodgeball or Conception and Induction or How to Begin an Apocalypse (Untrue Tales From Beyond Fiction - Recollections of an Alternate Past, Book One)

About the book

High school Sophomore Trevor believes he’s got a rich and detailed imagination. When his wandering mind shows him visions of car-size insects, arcane rituals, and odd-looking people talking to other creatures who don’t seem human at all, Trevor doesn’t think it’s any different from his sexual fantasies, or his daydreams about what it would be like to know what the girls from school were really thinking. When an afternoon of such intense mental wandering proves to be a real out-of-body psychic experience, Trevor soon finds himself literally teleported into an unseen world of magic and Mentalism – the science of reading other people’s thoughts and memories he didn’t know he had a natural talent for.

Transferred to a school where they teach subjects ranging from the mathematics of magical ethics to the secret histories of the magical world, Trevor tries to fit in to a student body who believes his existence has been foretold by prophecy – and that he might cause the end of the universe as they know it. Some of the students, and even a few of the teachers, are willing to risk lives and their own ethical balance to stop Trevor from fulfilling his potential, while he just wants to get through his first day at a new school.

Add the menacing conspiracy of three dark figures -two of whom work at the school- and the fact that Trevor accidentally got a girl pregnant when he thought he’d only been fantasizing about her, plus a P.E. teacher who thrusts him into a game of dodgeball where Trevor has to quickly adapt to avoiding balls of fire, lightning, and worse, and the first book of Untrue Tales gets the series off to a potentially apocalyptic start.

About the book:

Book Three picks up from the same instant that Book Two left off: in Hell. It is primarily concerned with Trevor’s attempts to free his companions from eternal damnation, but has a few twists and turns that will leave you wondering what really happened.
