My Favorite Author

My favorite author is Issac Asimov. I love his character R. Daneel Olivaw as in the Robot and Foundation series: The Caves of robotSteel, The Naked Sun, Robots and Empire, Prelude to Foundation, Foundation and Earth. Is seems to me that Asimov created a new world, lived in it and shared his experiences with us.

I am a relatively new author of sci-fi but I can identify with, what I believe, Asimov did to write his books. Which is live in the world of your writing and see what transpires.

Don’t know if you ever noticed the talented kids in your middle school class who were drawing all kinds of great sketches while the teacher’s monotonous voice droned on and on. Though you may have when the teacher ripped up their art and embarrassed them in public. These are the people who create great stories and art.

Orson Scott Card, created some of his best fiction by doodling and creating a symbolic world,  that just had to be lived in. Then he found characters that knew how to  live there. Whether he was one of them I am not sure, but he surely reported back to us on their lives.

Like the doodlers, I have frequently lived in another world and for me it often happens at 2:00 a.m.  When I awake,  I get a great idea and write it down for the time the sun comes up. The funny thing,  for me,  is I find my books write themselves in this way. Once I draw the landscape, as Orson Scott Card did, but in my mind alone, inhabitants, who I now know well, come and live in it.  They act on their strengths and weakness to live their soon to be revealed lives.

As odd as this may sound, I can then read my story when it is finished and it is almost as if I had never written it. I end up being a big fan of my stories. What I am waiting for is to like mine better than Asimov’s.

BOOK SUMMARY: 

From the first page The Final War grows in intensity as two interwoven story threads reach a crescendo.

Someone or something is killing the peacemakers of Earth and time is running out quickly!

At the same time, the people of Earth are hurdling down a path to a war to end all wars. Somehow the two plots appear connected and may have something to do with the discovery of an ancient civilization’s vacant city recently found under the grounds of Mars.

The conflict however, is fought in more than one dimension and how it will end will keep you hanging till the last page

Janr’s anthology is a taste treat, as it is a variety box of mind candy. Each story is so unique that it will seem as if it was written by a different author; yet, you will recognized Janr’s uniquely descriptive style, one that will leave you feeling as if you have just watched a movie.

These are the 4 stories: “The Touch” explores the meaning of death and its consequences, in “A First Child’s Plan” Mars has a hidden history that will change our future forever, “The 4 Elements Of War” are dramatically unique mystical warfare that determines Earth’s future and finally “A Second Date”, is a human experience with rediscovering love.

Axiom’s Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy » The Sci Fi Internet Connection.

Science Fiction and Fantasy continues to languish on the broadcast and cable as the networks still try to find the next Lost while giving us ersatz shows like FlashForwardV, and The Event or they have resorted to “sci fi lite” like No Ordinary FamilyBeing Human, and Warehouse 13.  So after the double-naught decade gave us such impressive genre output  as FarscapeFireflyBattlestar Galactica, andLost (among many others), the teens decade of the 21st century has thus far turned up creatively vapid.  But that does not mean that episodic sci fi has completely lost its way.  The internet has offered a whole new outlet to creative talents and genre web series have begun to spring up by the dozens over the past few years giving us an exciting new spectrum of offerings to choose from.  True, most of these are done on a micro-budget, but many of the more adept creators of these series have found unique ways to work around these limitations and still deliver a superior product.  Primarily because they have focused on story-telling and or characterization.  So much like legendary shows such as The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits did back in their heyday, these web series rely less on special effects and production values and focus their efforts on telling a good story, something that seems to have been almost forgotten on genre television these days.

Our Internet Connection column covers these web entries and gives you an idea what to look for and where to find them.  Following is a list of the shows that we have reviewed so far as well as some of the interviews that we have conducted with the creators of these web productions.  And check back on a regular basis as we continue to cover more of the genre web series out there in order to help you discover this completely new treasure vault of creative talent bringing you episode sci fi.  Also check out SciFinal.com where they currently have over 200 Science Fiction and Fantasy web series listed in their directory.
