My Book

My book,An ASTOUNDING War, came from my interest in both science fiction and naval and military history. I was able to find what I considered interesting facts and historical details here and there on the Internet and in a large number of books, but there was not one book that put it all together. Although I did not discover it until after my book was published, there is a quote by Toni Morrison that describes the situation perfectly:

If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

Price Reduced

The price on Amazon of my book An ASTOUNDING War has been reduced from $24.95 to just $21.95.

Science Fiction and Inventions

You can look on the Internet or at various books that consider the connection between science fiction and inventions. What you see tries to show that a particular invention or discovery was inspired by a work of science fiction. I can only say that many of these claims are questionable. But what about looking in the opposite direction, at works of science fiction that contain some new invention or discovery?Take a look at the home page of my website to see what I mean.
