The first story I’ve ever co-authored is now complete. In June, the first part, “Earth Camp,” posted on Lightning Quick Reads.
Scott Harpstrite and I tell the story of a futuristic Earth where a weapon destroyed most of the Earth’s atmosphere. 100 years later, a team of explorers are sent by the Solar Council to investigate Earth, look for survivors of the war, and test the planet’s habitability. What they discover rewrites their understanding of history.
For December’s Lightning Quick Reads post, we conclude the story with “A Gift to Save the Earth.”
With a newly constructed time travel machine, the explorers from the Solar Council and some refugees from Earth embark on a mission to travel back in time and stop the weapon from ever destroying the Earth’s atmosphere. But can they change history?
Today I posted the first science fiction story I’ve written in several years on Lightning Quick Reads. The march theme: Luck–just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Find out how one genetically engineered human views luck. And is there a genetic code for luck? All this talk of genetics makes it sound deep. Don’t let it scare you off if sci-fi isn’t your thing. It’s actually quite soft on the science and set in a not too distant future. Just a chance for me (and possibly you) to get settled in for the fun to come. I plan on writing science fiction stories for April through June (at least). I hope you enjoy. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
