Meet the Author

I'm a Geek who dreams of one day being a successful Science Fiction Writer. My influences include Isaac Asimov, Stargate, Star Trek, Farscape, and many other sources.


I've always loved Scifi for it's ability to transport you to another realm. For an hour or two you can escape from the troubles of life and be transported to the realm of imagination. Whether that is to the distant future or past Science Fiction always has the ability to amaze.


My favorite drink is Inca Kola! Props to you if you even have the slightest idea what that is! :)

    D

    Good story, but the dialog isnt very good. Nobody talks like that to each other making it unbelievable and scripted. Every character may as well be the same person. A cyborg is surprised about a computer that talks? Come on.

    Terrible

    Typos aplenty (spell check much?) and a narrative that is nigh-impossible to coherently follow. I put it down twenty pages in.

    Piece of $h!t

    This junk was just a waste of time. Put it down after 10 pages. Many spelling and grammatical errors. No wonder it was free. Dont hit the "Free" button. It is a piece $h!t, and thats the nicest way I can put it.

    Very Plausible

    For the timeline in which it was written it makes a plausible prediction of where science is going and the effects of cyber access on society.

    Very interesting.

    Awesome short story about AI and where the line between man and computer is if humans were implanted with mechanical/computerized parts.
