REALITY FLUX: BOLO AND DIGIMON
Gregory P. Wong
To those curious about the "Reality Flux" event, it's a quantum anomaly that occurs in as-yet unfinished indepedent novel I'm working on. Of course, the origins of the Reality Flux are not entirely relevant to the story, just that it does happen.
Bolos are gigantic, heavily armed, sentient armored fighting machines, created by Keith Laumer.
Digimon, or "Digital Monsters", are a creation of Japan, and span cartoons, comics, toys, and games.
To those curious, the Digimon in this story come from the post-Tamers continuity featured in my other Digimon stories.
