I am wondering if people have thoughts, tips, suggestions on how to build a subtle world within the world we already live in. I am writing a novel where the world is Earth, no different from our own in any sense, but for the fact that my character is having what others would consider to be super-natural experiences (psychic experiences, experimenting with time travel). I am trying to strike a balance between making her actions and experiences be anomalous, but at the same time, not wanting to…See More
"One thought on how to do this is to replace,supplemental or augment an element of our society with the supernatural or super technology. The first example to come to mind is John Dalmas' Farside series.

I am a science fiction enthusiast and short story writer. I particularly enjoy stories on time and time travel. I am also fascinated with philosophy, astrology, astronomy, physics, and metaphysics, and try to interweave these elements throughout all of my stories. I'm also working on a few philosophy of physics papers in my spare time, in true nerd fashion. I hope to one day publish my stories and essays.
I have a blogspot and tumblr full of thoughts and quotes. No stories up, but I would love to exchange stories for mutual critique, so feel free to contact me on that note if you'd like.

Two white dwarfs head toward a collision in this artist’s illustration. New research suggests that the Milky Way's preponderance of positrons could come from a specialized type of supernova from colliding low-mass white dwarfs — an explosion that is difficult to detect, but rich in an isotope that generates this kind of antimatter.

I planted my feet firmly on the ground. I never felt more connected to the planet where I stood than where I was right then in that moment. I took in a large, deep breath. It felt like I was breathing in the essence of crisp fresh snow.
And then I released.
This part of the plateau no one was allowed near. Off to the distance, I could see our city, Sheba, the buildings were made of gold and the streets were littered with diamonds and gems.
I zipped my jacket up and hid behind a large rock and waited.
The reason why people weren't allowed out this far from Sheba was because of the instability of the terrain. The scientists said that our world sometimes would converge with another world; a more dangerous world.
But this terrain was also where the agents came in and out of around this time of the evening. I wanted to see who they were bringing back this time.
