Dark Side

Click To Buy

The print version of the Remembered Earth Universe novella Dark Side should be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other retailers in the next couple of days (the epub will be released July 20). This is the eight story in the Cislunar Series and introduces the reader to Moon settlements, facilities in cislunar space (basically Earth-Moon space), and the friction that may develop between commercial and scientific interests on the Moon. 

In this case, mining interests threaten the operation of an already building radio-telescope on the far side of the Moon. The scientists are worried that the mining operations will create electromagnetic interference, making the successful functioning of the telescope impossible.

Into this situation comes a recently graduated law student whose job is to find a way to make sure the use of the telescope will not be impaired. But he fails, and in failing succeeds.

To see how, read Dark Side in print now, or later in an epub (July 20, 2023) version.

While part of a series, Dark Side can be read as a stand-alone.

The Remembered Earth Universe: Cislunar Series extrapolates the development of cislunar space over the next century and tends to use more probable science and technology than my other universe Future Chron which uses more speculative science as a background.

The Realm?

In cleaning up this website and trying to make a more uniform presentation I have taken out any references to my in progress story, The Realm, I hope to add back a sample of this story once I start working on it again.

Robot Planet Sample

This is one of my favorites because of the interplay among the robots. It is the second story in the Spin-Two Trilogy. Look under the Story Samples tab and scroll down.
