Save The Coffee For Tomorrow

“I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love” John Lennon, Paul McCartney 

However for less than the price of a cup of coffee just this weekend at a special price it can buy you three of my science fiction books for under a dollar. This sale is on April 14 and 15. 

Science Fiction photoScience fiction is the dreams of the future based on a reflection of the past and present. Where are we going as a people? What new and exciting things will the future bring? Science fiction is bound only by our imagination.

Like any book of literary science fiction examines what we as human beings are. What lurks in our souls. Of course in science fiction, we take that to the extreme. In Dark Matters, in three novellas I explore the wicked side of humanity. “Johnny Can’t Run” is a story of Nazis exiled on a planet. They dream of returning to Earth as conquerors as their violent ways eat at them like cancer. In “Heretic” I explore religion, especially the aspect of how it controls the population. The main character Zach finds irrefutable evidence that the religion is a fraud and must come to terms with that. Finally in the “Psychology of Lady Jane Perkins”, I look into the world of the mentally ill. As a sufferer of bipolar, I can speak of this aspect from the inside and outside. Our hero strangely falls madly in love with one Lady Jane Perkins. Of course, there are nefarious things afoot.

“From Chaos to Cosmos” is a collection of short stories. These are hardcore science fiction each with my unique twist. The stories are fast-paced and entertaining. The characters are diverse and complex, ranging from a psychotic businesswoman, a union leader, an assassin, a brilliant scientist, FBI agents and an anarchist to name a few. Stories take place on planet Earth, the moon and into the galaxy. I tend to stray away from the violent solution. That is the stories don’t whittle down to a physical fight in the glorious end. Rather these books are ones that will make you think and see life from a somewhat slanted if not perverted perspective. “From Chaos to Cosmos” will show you the future as you never imagined it.

Finally “I Should Have Been A Rock Star” is definitely the diamond of the gems. It is perhaps the best book that I have ever written. The plot is broken up into two sections, one on planet Earth and the other in deep outer space. Poor Don Colandri has whooshed away in a whirlwind on his way to a statics exam. He becomes a tool in a ‘game’ between the witch Nellie Watt and the nefarious Time Lords. Nellie’s long-term goal is to win the game. Victory will give her the right to go to the ‘Twinkling of Twilight’ and press the ‘reset button’. Pressing this button will return the universe to its origin. Meanwhile back on planet Earth, Don’s three roommates are clueless as to what has happened. So they concoct a lie saying that Don was kidnapped by Satanists. They hope to exploit his disappearance to rake in money and score with checks. However when the real Satanists come knocking on the door trouble starts. Exactly how deep is the dark domain? “I Should Have Been A Rock Star” is a book that will make you laugh.

So take a chance on purchasing one of this books. Give up your coffee for a day and buy something that you will remember for the rest of your life.
