Welcome science fiction & fantasy fans!

As a science fiction/fantasy writer myself, I enjoy taking voyages into the unknown. Looking at the universe as it isn't often helps us put the real world into perspective. It's also fun to take an occasional vacation from the often-harsh reality around us. Unlike the theists, the religionists, the god-groupies who feel compelled to live in fantasy realms, we visit them and then come back home--and then go voyaging again.

I hope you'll all feel free to congregate here and compare your experiences in other worlds and times.

Looks intriguing - would also make a great comic book plot...

Geostorm, a new sci-fi film, will give everybody who is depending on technological fixes to save us from Climate Change second thoughts.

I'm excited to announce I have a new book about to be published--a science fiction adventure entitled Into the Out. Told through the eyes of a teenage girl, it concerns eleven high school students on a field trip in the desert who come across a long-buried starshi;p. The ship takes off with them aboard and whisks them away into interstellar space. They don't know where they're going or why, but they have to pool their resources to survive their mysterious journey into deep space.

The book is being considered by Kindle Scout, and this is where you come in. For those of you unfamiliar with it, Kindle Scout is a reader-driven program by Amazon. It's somewhat along the lines of Kickstarter, where the readers themselves choose what they'd like to see published. In this case, though, you don't have to put up any money, not a cent. You just visit the campaign site and read the opening section of the book, about 5,000 words. Then, if you like what you see and want to read more, you vote for it. If the book gets enough votes, Amazon will publish it as an ebook under their own imprint.

Oh, and as a thank-you gift for supporting it, you'll get a free copy of the final ebook

What can you do to help? Just a few simple things:

  1. During thee campaign period (May 15 through June 14, 2016), visit this Web page.
  2. Read the opening section of Into the Out.
  3. If you enjoy the book and want it to get published, nominate it. You can have up to 3 active nominations going at any one time.

That's all it takes. You'll be notified when the campaign period is over. If enough other people agree with you that the book should be published, you'll get an early ebook copy with my compliments.

And tell your space opera-loving friends. The more, the merrier.

I hope you'll enjoy the sample, and thank you for your support.

Pleasant reading!

Some days it's hard to tell reality from sci-fi. (Nice use of gifs.)

Have Space Suit - Will Travel Robert A. Heinlein

At least PART of Clyde Tombaugh got to fly by Pluto!

If anyone is really interested in atheistic post-apocalyptic fiction, you might look at my book, The Road To Welkin (or here).  Not merely atheist, but polyamorous as well.  This book has not done well with sci-fi fans.

Thank you Steph S. I hope you enjoy it.

I am interested - I will go and get it from Amazon - and thank you Robert.
