Chris' story follows an original character (also named Chris) and the Pokemon Lucario through their delightful adventures in and around various video game universes. But the biggest challenge for this team lies inward, as Lucario has to adapt to the "real world," where there aren't any Pokemon battles or anything. Chris, in turn, tries to help Lucario search for a purpose outside of glorified cockfighting. Of course, they also venture into other non-Nintendo universes and meet characters from all over kingdom come. Branching out is kind of required when your video game daydreaming is so elaborate that most Russian novelists would think it's going a bit overboard.
Currently, The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest comes in at a whopping 4,000,000 words, and that's just where we are at the end of chapter 219. This can/will go on forever. That's six Les Miserables, seven War And Peaces, or four All Of The f*****g Harry Potter Novels Combined. This is made all the more impressive by the fact that Author Chris speaks English as a second language. Anytime he finds himself bored, he busts out his laptop and starts writing, and it has improved his English immensely. Kind of makes that pretentious guy with a leather-bound notebook in a coffee shop who's "looking for inspiration" seem a bit silly. Well, sillier.
