I’m happy to announce that I have an anthology of my stories out and available for the Amazon Kindle.
“God, Time, Perception & Sexy Androids” features 27 of my short stories, written over the last 30 years or so – all completely revised and updated for this book.
Trying to come up with a title for this thing, we batted several ideas around, considered using the name of one of the short stories, but then finally I kind of summed up a thread I found among the majority of the tales.
There’s a lot of what-if stories dealing with religion and/or the occult, several time travel fantasies, and a good dose of sexy androids. And the one major thing I seem to explore among just about every story is the mystery of perception – what’s the difference between what we perceive, and actual reality? Is there a difference? Does our perception of something actually affect reality? Can we change reality? Are there other realities?
Or, basically, “What is reality?”
That’s been my favorite question to explore since I was a teenager. That and all the facets of reality – free will, destiny, synchronicity, and ultimately existence itself.
And, also, what is perception? Do we alone perceive things? If we program a machine to observe and recognize, is it truly perceiving?
This pretty much marks the end of my short story writing career. I know you should never say never, but unless this anthology actually takes off, I’m going to concentrate on both longer, and conversely much shorter, works of fiction: novels and flash.
