Featured Book: Midshipman Henry Gallant in Space by H. Peter Alesso

Alesso_Gallant_finalAbout Midshipman Henry Gallant in Space by H. Peter Alesso

As the last star fighter in squadron 111, Midshipman Henry Gallant is on his way from Jupiter to Mars. With the United Planets’ fleet on the verge of annihilation, he can expect no help as he passes through the asteroid belt and threatening aliens. With so much uncertainty about the aliens’ capabilities and intentions, analyzing the captured computer equipment in Gallant’s possession could prove crucial. The fate of Earth could rest on the abilities of Midshipman Henry Gallant. Unfortunately, it is his abilities that have been much in doubt during his tour of duty.

In an era of genetic engineering, he is the only Natural (non-genetically enhanced) officer left in the fleet. His classmates and superior officers have all expressed their concern that he will not be up to the demands of the space service.

Only bright and attractive junior officer Kelsey Mitchel has shown any sympathy for him. Now as his navigator on the last fighter in squadron 111, her life as well as a good many others, depends of Henry Gallant.

Religion, morality, love, environmentalism, and randomness are the main themes in this book.

Boredom

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
It isn’t. You’re just testing the limits of believability. Are tentacle aliens believable? Depends on how you write it. How about a billionaire marrying a coke-head prostitute he’s only known for a week? Depends on how you write it. You’ll notice the last one is the plot for the movie “Pretty Woman”, a sci-fi cult classic. It certainly tested my limits on believability.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My love of military science fiction and having a story I just had to tell. This is the second book in the trilogy Gray Panthers.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
I love SciFi because it lets you use your imagination with your knowledge of science to write things no one else has.

Squirrels & Puppies: Dark Morality Tales by Russell A Mebane

squirrelscoverA collection of short stories involving some puppies, a couple
squirrels, a kitty, a cyborg, some aliens, and some Black people. All of
them revolve around some moral theme and all of them involve something
or someone getting raped, killed, or tortured; but in a creative and
meaningful way. There are other people in the stories, too. Together
they’ll be exploring moral relativism. What is moral relativism? It’s a
bunch of good fun! That’s what it is!

Targeted Age Group:: 13+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Poverty and boredom.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
It isn’t. Your mind just goes to a different place. Two people walk into a room. In a romance novel, they fall in love. In erotica, they have sex. In an action novel, they fight. In sci-fi, one of them’s an alien. But it’s all still two people walking into a room.

A Few Things You’ll be Needing to Know by Gary Loffler

A-Few-Things-Youll-be-Needing-to-Know_coverFor ten-year-old Walker Viatori space travel was just another childhood notion until his Uncle Nathan returned from a Grand Tour of the Palindrome Trading Ring. The tales of this 240-year-long voyage stirred young Walker’s imagination and set him on his own path to the stars—a path requiring the exploration of his terraformed world and learning the skills needed to survive a trip to the stars.

Targeted Age Group:: YA to Adult

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
In the course of helping a friend write a book, I created a universe. Eventually it occurred to me that I could also write a book in that universe and so I did. There will eventually be at least three books with a collection of short stories to provide some background for the novels. Ideas briefly mentioned in the long form stories will be explored more deeply in the short stories.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
You write SciFi exactly the same as you write any other genre, you simply add scientific speculation. What happens to romance when you live to be five hundred years? How do you solve a locked room mystery when you have teleportation available? Writing about the future does mean that you have to imagine what will happen rather than interpret past events. Unlike fantasy writing where you can create your own set of rules, Science Fiction should be based on established theories.

Reason for Existence by Richard Botelho

ReasonforExistence“David Jordan. Successful, intelligent, connected, and with a mission. Now at the center of a global crisis. Can he bring peace to the world and maintain his secret? Or will he fail and cost humans everything?”

Targeted Age Group:: 18-70

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The category of science fiction needed a genre bender featuring thriller, romance, philosophy, and adventure combined into one novel. Reason for Existence is a return to classic science fiction novels which were not so formulaic and predictable. Reason for Existence is very original, unlike any other current science fiction novel.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
Science Fiction allows the author to dream more than any other genre.
