"Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private Eye" by Christiana Ellis

People found, mysteries solved… In this universe or the next.

When you need someone found, you hire a detective. When that person is an elf from a parallel dimension, and on the run from killer robots, you hire Phyllis Esposito. Armed with an inquisitive mind and a cybernetic portal generator, Phyllis scours the multiverse, searching for the answers to life’s mysteries.

The ones that pay, anyway.

After taking a simple missing-brother job, she uncovers a massive conspiracy involving dwarven mafiosos, corrupted artificial intelligence, amoral sorceresses, and even U.F.O’s. With the entire multiverse under threat, Phyllis will have to confront enemies both new and old to crack the case.

Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private-Eye is a noir-inspired detective story that explores a multiverse of science-fiction and fantasy, with a steadfast heroine solving mysteries across parallel dimensions, and within herself.

What started as an experiment in daily serialized fiction is now a full-fledged ebook, available for purchase now at!

An introduction to Phyllis Esposito

So, what is “Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private Eye”?

It’s a fiction experiment that simultaneously excites and terrifies me.

For a long time now, I’ve flirted with the idea of doing a true, write-as-I-go serial fiction story. Something about the lack of the safety net really appeals to me, and the excitement of discovery has always been my favorite part of writing. In a way, it’s a bit like a webcomic, except I can’t draw, so I shall paint a picture with words instead.

When choosing the subject matter for the story, I wanted something that would be both in-keeping with the classic pulpy-serial vibe of the project, but also something with enough established tropes that it will give me a bit of a skeleton to improvise around and dress up as I see fit. So I chose detective story, but with a science-fantasy twist.

Enter Phyllis. I won’t say much about her here, because I don’t know her that well yet. I hope that she will introduce herself to me, and to all of you, as the project progresses. I have no outline, and only vague plans. That’s half the fun!

As I write this introduction, I have only written the first installment. There will be another one tomorrow. And another the day after that. How long can I keep this up? I guess we’ll see.
