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 is Out!

At last, the next chapter in The Chaos Chronicles is available to read! The Reefs of Time is out, and the second half, Crucible of Time, will launch on September 10, 2019! They’re appearing under the imprint of Starstream Publications, in association with Book View Café, with simultaneous release in print and ebook.

This chapter in the story was a major creative challenge. But it’s done! Note: Part of the launch was supposed to include new print versions of all the preceding books, and that’s running late. So I’m still very busy right now.
