About Quexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMS by Tom Stafford

TIME DREAMS. They are dreams, like any other dream. They are dreams about space and Time. They seem real, but so does life.
Dreams are thoughts. You’ve heard it before, “I think, therefore I am.” (Rene’ Descartes). But, the fact is – nobody even knows where thoughts come from.
Most people believe they have free will. They believe they have a choice. They believe they act of their own volition. But, will is not an action. It is only a thought. You cannot will something to happen. You are only free to choose the thoughts in your head. And, no one knows where they come from.

Life is a fantasy. No one knows what Life is or where it came from. No one knows what Time is. No one knows where Man came from or how long he’s been on this planet. No one knows if their actions are truly theirs. No one knows where dreams come from. No one knows what reality is.

Quexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMS is a philosophical fantasy of dreams, space, Time, and love. It is the story of one man’s search to find the meaning of his existence.

But, how can he when nothing in this world is real? Have you ever wondered where Man came from? Did Man evolve from the apes? Was Man created by God? Perhaps Man was genetically created by the “Gods”. Perhaps these “Gods” created other creatures in their attempt to make Man. “TIME DREAMS” is a story that reaches back to the Time of Creation.
Man, the most arrogant of species, has no idea what Life is or where it came from. He doesn’t even know how he originated or how long he’s been on this planet. So, is that important in finding meaning for your existence?

Gork thinks it is. In his quest to find clues to the origin of Man, Gork discovers there may be something even more meaningful.
Gork tells Angie the story of how he met the girl in his dreams, her grandmother, Amani. His Time Dreams begin as he travels to an archaeological site near the Calico Hills in California.
During the drive across the desert, Gork has his first dream, a dream that takes him to another time, another world. In his dream he sees a girl, the girl of his dreams, Amani. He falls in love. It is True Love. It is Eternal Love. It is a love that has been since the beginning of creation.

Gork travels through space and time, compelled to follow his dream. His dreams take him back to a time and place long forgotten. While in reality he discovers an underground cavern that holds the secret to Man’s past. A secret buried in Time.

The battleground between Heaven and Hell is here on earth. Gears, Pax and TL are foster brothers who have spent their lives as combat soldiers and are due to retire when a virus destroys mankind leaving only pockets of humanity desperately trying to survive the evolving dead who are capable of destroying all life on earth. Unexpectedly they save a woman who cannot speak but is deadly to the hunters that now rule the earth.

Gears comes out fighting and refuses to accept that survival alone is their only option and, together with his brothers and the woman they save and name Ip, they set themselves the mission to destroy all hunters and restore order to the world. Along the way they make enemies of the living and the dead but they stay true to their course refusing to stand down from their mission regardless of the odds.

Mindguard by Andrei Cherascu

Mindguard-Cover-Small-1Called out of semi-retirement, the telepath and Mindguard Sheldon Ayers is tasked with protecting an information package located inside the mind of a young woman who claims the knowledge she holds is vital to the future of mankind. Sheldon and his team must help her cross the most dangerous territory in the man-inhabited universe – the Djago Desert.

Hunted by the Enforcement Unit – the all-powerful Military arm of the Interstellar Federation of Common Origin – Sheldon’s team must fight to keep the carrier alive and guard the integrity of her mind. But nobody suspects that Sheldon also has a dark secret, and it could end up changing the fate of the mission.

Targeted Age Group:: 18+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The idea of a “mindguard” is the result of my own obsession with protecting the people I love and the frustration of not always being able to do that. The concept came to me while taking a walk with my wife, a few years ago. She was upset over something work-related and I remember wishing that I could just place an essence of myself between her mind and whatever was making her sad. I wanted to be able to generate a “Weixman Cube”, just like Sheldon. Wouldn’t that be cool?

I mean, I can protect my loved ones from physical threats, to a certain extent. I can make sure no one lays a hand on them while I’m around. But you can’t really protect someone from a “psychological threat”. If something makes them sad or upset, all you can do is try and cheer them up afterwards. But that’s just “damage control”. You can act as someone’s bodyguard, but how cool would it be do be their mindguard as well?

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
I used to think it would be easier than writing other genres, at least for me. I live in Romania and I’ve never even traveled to an English-speaking country, so I’m always hesitant to place my stories in the “real world” for fear of little telltale signs of the fact that I’m not familiar with a particular place.

This way, I get to build my own worlds. No one can tell me “Hey, that’s not how they drink their coffee on Ganthic” or “Toilets flush differently on Noriado2″. They’ll flush however the hell I want them to. That’s the beauty of creating a whole world from scratch. But, in the end, these worlds – these realities – come with their own structural “burden”. The author has the responsibility of making them believable. You can’t take shortcuts. Keeping track with every detail of a brand new world can be very difficult. science-fiction authors also have the task of making this world at last partially realistic. You need to be able to believe that this could actually happen, given the proper timespan and conditions. At least in that respect, I think fantasy authors have it easier.

Featured SciFi Book: The Alex Cave Energy Saga by James M. Corkill

About The Alex Cave Energy Saga by James M. Corkill

Alex Cave, a retired CIA operative, is drawn into a situation where the fate of civilization will be determined by his actions, in this three part saga.

Episode 1. Dead Energy. 4.5 out of 5 stars Amazon. (32 customer reviews)

The tanker left Valdez Alaska with a full load of heavy crude oil for a routine trip down to Washington State, until the crew brings the ship into the Puget Sound. One crew person manages to scream for help on the emergency frequency, but it is too late. When the U.S. Coast Guard arrives to investigate, a lone man is standing at the railing, but he is not part of the crew. His name is Alex Cave, a vacationing geology instructor who had seen a brilliant flash of light around the tanker and also responded to the distress call. When Alex explains to the Coast Guard Captain that the ship is deserted and the crude oil has mysteriously vanished without a trace, the Captain thinks he’s mad, until he learns Alex is also ex-CIA and advisor to the Director of National Security.
The next day the Coast Guard frantically searches for the massive spill, but cannot find a trace of the oil, and the corpses of the crew are discovered frozen on a mountain, one-hundred miles away. Soon panic grips the Pacific Northwest when the oil in the Alaska pipeline and west coast refineries mysteriously disappears. Transportation of basic necessities cannot reach the cities and common citizens turn to primal instincts to survive. The only clue Alex has to work with is a dollar size crystal found in the hold of the empty oil tanker. Can Alex solve the mystery before it’s too late? Or will the world succumb to . . . DEAD ENERGY.

Episode 2. Cold Energy. 4.6 out of 5 stars Amazon. (27 customer reviews)

When the Polar Ice Sheet mysteriously expands by thousands of square miles, the sudden freezing temperature begins to alter the weather patterns on a global scale. The weather experts call it: The Polar Vortex.
Alex Cave joins the scientists on the high-tech research ship Mystic, and they head north to investigate, where they discover a massive wall of crystal clear ice. As the ice continues to expand into the Bering Sea, Alex and the scientists realize if it continues the world will enter a new ice age. Will Alex figure out a way to stop the expansions? Or will humanity be extinguished by . . . COLD ENERGY.

Episode 3. Red Energy. 4.6 out of 5 stars Amazon (11 customer reviews)

From a distance the island appeared as a black nodule in an otherwise empty ocean. From the air, a hollow center was visible. But inside the crater, an unimaginable treasure was embedded in the rock: An alien spaceship.
When Alex discovers a piece of incredibly powerful advanced technology inside the spaceship, he realizes if it falls into the wrong hands it could end all life on the planet. Everything goes well until he is betrayed by one of his colleagues, who steals the device and kidnaps the one person who can figure out how to harness its power. His friend, Doctor Henry Heinz.
And if this wasn’t enough, Alex’s past actions while working for the CIA have come back to haunt him, and his loved ones are put in grave danger. On this emotional rollercoaster, Alex literally feels the weight of the world on his shoulders as he is torn between saving the ones he loves, and saving humanity from extinction. Is there a way he can save both? Or will all life on the planet be destroyed by . . . RED ENERGY!

Featured Book: The Epherium Chronicles: Embrace by T.D. Wilson

Book one of The Epherium Chronicles

Hope. Captain James Hood of the Earth Defense Forces remembers what it felt like. Twenty-five years ago, it surged through him as a young boy watching the colony ships launched by mega-corporation Epherium rocket away. He, like so many others, dreamed of following in the colonists’ footsteps. He wanted to help settle a new world—to be something greater.

Then came the war…

Hope. During years of vicious conflict with an insectoid alien race, it was nearly lost. Though Earth has slowly rebuilt in the six years since the war, overcrowding and an unstable sun have made life increasingly inhospitable. When mysterious signals from the nearly forgotten colony ships are received, Hood is ordered to embark on a dangerous reconnaissance mission. Could humanity’s future sit among the stars?

Hope. Hood needs it now more than ever. As secrets about the original colonists are revealed and the Epherium Corporation’s dark agenda is exposed, new adversaries threaten the mission, proving more dangerous to Earth than their already formidable foes…

About Short Circuit and Other Geek Stories:
Short Circuit and Other Geek Stories is a fascinating tribute in memorial for Kenna’s son Steve Wild, 1968-2012, who loved “hard” science fiction, robots, and high technology. Authored by Kenna Mary McKinnon, with topics ranging from music of the spheres to death, this book contains short stories written for all ages to enjoy.
