The Lost Memory

1 star1 star1 star1 star
In the future... memories and thoughts are stored on devices strapped to our arms, freeing our minds from the need to remember. This seemed like the perfect kind of future for Jason. But when he encounters a figure who strikes a chord in the deepest recesses of his heart, he comes to the realization that he would give it all up in order to find his "Lost Memory". More

About John Krissilas

Hi! I'm John Krissilas, a sci-fi/fantasy writer based in Toronto, Canada.

My path to becoming a writer follows a much more Indiana Jones-ey and Don Draper-ey route than others. I spent my university days as an archaeologist, digging for artifacts in Jordan and falling in love with classical mythology. Recently, I've taken to the world of advertising, and so brands, insights, and marketing have become my forte.

My favourite aspect about writing isn't the writing itself, but the storytelling. I believe that the key to a great story is an over-arching concept - a theme - that drives the flow of the narrative and the conflict of its characters, and I'm particularly intrigued by the idea of using archetypes (universal ideas, characters, and story arcs) to make my stories more impactful.

What I'm working on:

With a passion for dark tales with heart, I've completed a collection of 15 dystopian short stories called IN-FUTURA (In the future...), with three of the stories published so far, in the online magazines MindFlights, Static Movement, and Aurora Wolf.

I've also completed my first YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, 151, which I'm in the process of seeking representation for.

Currently, I'm working on my second YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, called PERIAPSIS.

Visit my writer's blog at, where I'll post the latest news on what I'm working on, how my writing is coming along, and where you can view or download my latest stories.

Review by: Enjay Elm on May 31, 2011 : star star star star
This is an entertaining, fast-paced story. The ‘science’ is certainly leaning closer to fiction than science, but the future world building is nicely done and the writing style easy to read.
