The Niantic Project: Ingress

Written by Felicia Hajra-Lee and with a comic from Tycho, it describes the events that surround Devra , Farlowe and 855 after the events in Zurich. This story before publishing was known as An Exotic Matter.

Currently available at Amazon and Google Play.

When she first agreed to lead the research team of the Niantic Project, Dr. Devra Bogdanovich knew she was headed into the unknown. What she never could have imagined is where her dangerous, and potentially world-changing, exploration of Exotic Matter would lead her. After the chaos of the evening known as Epiphany Night explodes into murder and betrayal, the NIA seeks other ways to continue the ongoing research while Devra finds herself on the run and ensnared in a game of cat and mouse with the most powerful thinking machine ever created, a detection algorithm known as ADA. As ADA follows her digital trail, Devra is also pursued by both a relentless assassin and a rogue NIA agent. Now determined to restart her quest for understanding this transdimensional building block known as Exotic Matter, Devra recruits a team of her own to stop Niantic and uncover the ultimate truth of XM. Is it the key to unlocking an enlightened future? Or is it a tool for the ultimate enslavement of mankind? simple centered box

The Niantic Project: Level 8

Written by Felicia Hajra-Lee

Currently available at Amazon and Google Play.

Publication Date: November 18, 2013

An intense night takes an unexpected turn as the Niantic Project Laboratory located inside of CERN is finally shuttered. But the mysterious origins of Exotic Matter, and its potential for mankind, are too important for the corporations interested in exploiting it, and they converge on what was once the NIA's prized project, intent on getting their hands on the remaining researchers at the facility.

However, what starts as a military operation quickly takes a turn into the unknown as other dangerous players with their own agendas also arrive on the scene, intent on turning the chaos to their own advantage, and redefining the future of Exotic Matter.

Pre posts

Before Issue 3 was published several posts were made by several characters


It is interesting to see the new comic from Tycho.  It appears that he didn't 'see' me there. Psychic 
shielding.  It is interesting that he saw me quite clearly at the Magic castle.


I will never confirm nor deny the veracity of yesterday's release from Hulong which concerned a private 
conversation between Zeke Calvin and myself.  However, I do protest the posting of such things without 
verification.  Private conversations should remain private.

On a lighter note, I have heard rumors that Tycho is releasing another comic.  It is fun to see the events of 
your life illustrated, despite the fact that those were very hard days.  Of course, as much of what is in 
Tycho's comic relates to classified material, I have to be careful about what I say.

Misty 2

I am getting very bad vibes about Tycho.  If anybody out there is in contact with him, tell him to go 
underground. Stay on the move.Forces are closing on you. Energies familiar to me.  Elude and evade.  Expose 
your art to the public.  Your art is your weapon.  Use your vision to blind them.
