 Greetings Everyone!

What I like most about sci-fi literature is that it deals with a wider range of topics than conventional literature.  In conventional literature, we find the usual (and to me, rather boring) themes: love, sex, relationships, etc.- the so-called proper topics for people to be interested in.

But sci-fi literature encourages us to think about the larger issues: what exactly is meant by “space”, “dimension”  & “time”? ; what is the nature of reality? ; what are alternate, daughter dimensions & parallel universes? ; what is a “human being” & can humans transcend their own humanness?

H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov & William Gibson have some fascinating theories about these subjects.  Read about them in my new book!
