Why I Love Science Fiction

As a young reader, I was passionate about the wonder of the planets and stars, and humanity’s future among them. To me, the greatest adventure conceivable was to explore the universe. Now, as a writer, I see the same possibilities, multiplied.

Imagine human cultures of the future, or of a different past or present. See alien worlds, through alien eyes, without having to wait for a ticket on an actual starship. Explore the human soul and scientific possibilities, question the nature of reality, and wrestle with the light and lightning of God.

Science fiction, for me, is a high dive into a world of infinite possibilities, a ticket to the best ride in the best amusement park in the universe. That’s the kind of ride I hope to give you when you open one of my books.

The Reefs of Time and Crucible of Time, coming in 2019!

The next book in The Chaos Chronicles, The Reefs of Time, is coming in two parts, Reefs and Crucible, both in the second half of 2019. I’m making the final edit pass now. They’ll be published under my own imprint, Starstream Publications, in association with Book View Café.Target date for Reefs is late July, and for Crucible, late September. Cover art is in the works. The books will appear simultaneously in print and ebook.

This book has been a major creative challenge. But the conclusion is in sight! Part of the launch will include new print versions of all the preceding books, so I’m very busy right now. Keep an eye out here for updates as it turns into a finished book. Better yet, subscribe to my blog and sign up for my occasional newsletter! (Scroll to bottom for that.)
