What Technologies Do You Use or Want to Read About In Your SciFi Books?

~Seven Scientific Concepts of GOD GAMES~ The SciFi novel GOD GAMES explores the philosophical and competing aspects of an advanced scientific society with deep roots in religion and how this civilization can affect another less technically advanced culture. But driving the story line is science and technology. There isn’t time to write about them all in this post. So, I’ll just mention seven concepts with…

Quantum Entanglement and SciFi Romance

So, in GOD GAMES, Yahweh is a geeky scientist married to Gwendolyn. Their romance is so deep you can say their relationship follows the Law of Quantum Entanglement. First discussed by Albert Einstein in 1935 then further developed by others, the Law of Quantum Entanglement basically says two separate particles, that have been properly conditioned, will know what the other knows and you can not…

What’s GOD GAMES about?

GOD GAMES is an upside down SciFi retelling of the greatest story ever told where a tech-utopian Heaven has sworn off religion but trouble brews as a new religious movement threatens Heaven’s peaceful society. Now, it all comes down to a secular Yahweh who must fight a losing battle of wits and brawn against an imposing evangelical Lucifer over the fate of humans discovered in…

The Three Most Important Things for A Good Science Fiction Story- Part 2

In my last newsletter post, I showed why the most important thing for a good Science Fiction story is a Bad Romance.

The Three Most Important Things for A Good Science Fiction Story- Part 1

Sorry for my short writing hiatus this past week or so, but I was drafted to do some heavy (and free… sigh) videography work for my family’s grand Zoom Family Reunion event. It was a smashing success! But in between breaks and the working to 5:30AM sprints, I thought about what’s in a story. There are lots of things that go into writing a good…

Jungle Introduction Etiquette: Me Yahweh, You Abram!

Here’s a scene from my SciFi book GOD GAMES.  This is from a chapter titled “Abram.” A little background here. Having chased Lucifer to Earth, Yahweh finds himself in a paradise like forest (later to be called Eden located in eastern Africa). But before Yahweh runs into Adam and Eve, a tall dark skinned village leader saves him from being skewered by a giant wild…

WARNING: The Neighboring Universe

What happens when you create a new universe?  I mean, how do you interact with it?  And what about the life that pops up there?  Do you treat them like ants?  Do you try to communicate with them? Do you try to teach them what you have learned, like a parent child relationship?  Or do you consider them lesser than you, more subservient?  After all, you created the environment, the elements,…
