Title: Perjure: Welcome to the Multiverse
A virus escapes from a lab and ravages an ancient kingdom in another universe, and Carter must help it spread if he ever wants to see the Earth again.
Your universe has died. The Earth has been destroyed. Everyone you love is gone forever.
That’s the first thing Carter hears when he wakes up in a facility owned by the ultra-advanced Watcher Government. They tell him he’s a Detached, doomed to roam from universe to universe, space-aged world to stone-aged world, for the rest of his life.
But Carter wants to go home.
When a sentient virus that controls its victims’ bodies escapes from a Watcher lab into the primitive kingdom of Cribdahl, Carter is horrified to learn that he needs the virus’s help to revive the Earth and all the people who died. Unfortunately, the Watchers are currently chasing it down with particle pistols.
How far will Carter have to go to see his family and friends again? Or better yet, how far is he willing to go?

–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
For any “fish out of water” story, first establish your main character’s “water.” Consider how his or her expertise, experiences, and core beliefs clash with the new world.
