Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks. I will be publishing a free collection of themed short stories on Amazon and Smashwords for your reading pleasure.

What is the theme you ask?  Imagine our world fifty years from now. How will we live? Will it be a transcendental utopia or a Orwellian nightmare? What if disaster strikes? Or what if it’s nothing too out of the ordinary? What if our world is exactly as we know it today, but just with that little nudge in technology that keeps us guessing and dreaming?

It’s three ordinary guys. Three unique visions of the future. Three pint-sized yet powerful vignettes.

I’ve seen a great deal of rules and laws out there that every science fiction author supposedly must adhere to. Most of them are just laundry lists of somewhat annoying cliches and blatantly obvious no-no’s. This list, however, is really quite good and insightful. Every time I get lazy and think I could use just one itty bitty harmless one, I slap myself on the wrist and tell myself ‘No! Bad writer! Bad!

It’s here! Grab your iPads, smartphones and Kindles! My very first short story is available on the Amazon Kindle for $0.99! Give it a go all you readers out there. Even non-sci fi lovers might love it. And if you DO end up loving it, be a fan of/like the page on Facebook! It brings good karma 🙂



In a distant future, where humans have colonized all but the most barren solar systems in our Milky Way galaxy, a new frontier begins 87,000 light years away. With rampant piracy and corruption bringing the newly founded civilization to the brink of collapse, decorated ex-Alliance Navy officer, Eli Saffinger, is hired to protect a freighter that could single-handedly revitalize the economy and morale of the intergalactic pioneers. Knowing the inevitable consequence of escorting such valuable cargo, Saffinger prepares to confront the most ruthless and dangerous privateer in the southern Messier region – a mission that many have undertaken but none have survived.
