Resolutions is a collection of science fiction short stories written by Samuel James Richards. These are stories about ordinary people facing extraordinary situations, narratives which explore questions about the future of technology and humanity. Resolutions is all about the way things end. By the final conclusion, you will have smiled, shuddered, and will take away some food for thought.
“That’s No Moon” - a three-part space opera inspired by one of the most memorable lines from Star Wars: A New Hope. The fate of an entire planet is determined by a simple typo.
