Silent Landing, the wonders of an alien world

One of the fun things about science fiction is to imagine something more spectacular than Earth. While I didn’t envision Viridian quite like Pandora, it is certainly described as being more exotic and varied than we know Earth, not that there aren’t spots of paradise on our home planet. Viridian is slightly smaller, slightly faster spinning, slightly lower gravity, with mountain 4 times higher, trees 2 times taller, and of course Jurassic type monsters. It is a plethora of life, […]

On Writing Fiction

If I were Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz, or about any author other than who I am, you might actually be seeking me out for my opinion. Since you are here, I have to assume you happened to stumble here because of Google or some other search engine. Well, welcome. Do I think my work is every bit as good as some of my favorite authors? Better in some ways. I like my work. It’s honest. I don’t write […]

The Future Teller, a hope for sanity

The world may seem pristine in many places we visit, but appearances don’t always show the true picture.

We worry about climate change, and although global warming is probable, it’s hardly the issue it’s made out to be. The real killer is chemicals, and all the little byproducts that end up in landfills, in streams and rivers, in the soil and air, and eventually in […]

Planet Passing, a plausible holocaust

Disaster movies come in all flavors. 2012 is a good example, but hardly seemed plausible. How does a shot of neutrinos from solar activity change the weather and destabilize the globe, heat the core of Earth and create massive earthquakes? Far-fetched ideas, myths about calendars, prophecies that have been promoted through religions, and man’s need to invite disaster are mostly fear mongering and pretty bad fiction, yet a fair amount of people love to buy into such nonsense. Do real […]

Trek to the Future

The future is perilous and uncertain. We are destroying our environment. Without change, man may face extinction. Trek to the Future looks to logic and truth to be man’s salvation. Slideshow Text: Without a future there is no sense in our existence! Enlightenment is the true hope for all tomorrows, where wisdom will grow from logic and truth, then knowledge and common sense will be our guiding beacons! The future will demand we face reality, where independence will be the […]
