Hello there! Online I’m known as Kyologist, my real name is Kyle Ketcham (yes, I’m being serious), but you can just call me Kyle. If you’re here, then I assume you’ve heard about my story, Phantonics, and wanted to check it out? Or you just happened to stumble upon this place somehow? Either way, welcome!
Phantonics: The study of the phanton.
Phantons are tiny particles that make up the soul of each and every person. They are responsible for things such as the existence of ghosts, as well as “Abilities,” which are mysterious powers one can unlock upon “awakening” their own inner phantons.
Adam Grayson meets Charlotte Ouderkirk, a ghost of the royal family of his country known as Requiem. He awakens to one of these Abilities, which Charlotte seems to recognize as the “World Mirror,” a power closely connected to her family. With Charlotte’s memories wiped of important information on the matter, Adam begins to explore for the truth behind his unique Ability. He, along with many others in the story, will soon come to a painful realization:
Do they know anything at all about the world they live in?
Head right on to the first chapter if you’d like!

Or Wattpad (Just started posting as of July 9th, so it may take a while to catch up)!
Phantonics is a story I’ve been trying to write since 2010, going through many different changes as I age and learn more about the world. Those past forms… are awful. I may post snippets of them at some point for the fun of it, but I officially want to post the current version here on this site.
My goal here is to grow as a writer and bring this story that has meant so much to me out into the world. Feel free to share any comments or concerns you may have about the series!
