Anyway, this is basically just a game to see what drinks people can come up with.

“Hello, Alistair, this is Linda Zimmerman at S.E.T.I. I’ve got the granddaddy of all signals. There are two coming from the same quadrant of space. They’re definitely not ours, but guess what? One of them’s in the neighborhood!”
“What? Please tell me where they are!”
Linda provided the location and waited several moments while the observatory on the other side of the planet pointed its own radio telescope to the same patch of sky. A short time later the voice came back through the

"Suppose you learned that an ancient prophecy about an artifact, said to be powerful enough to dramatically change the world, was true. Would you risk everything to find it?
It has been five-hundred years since the Pulse caused the Great Collapse, ending the Golden Age, and civilization on planet Earth. Humanity has waited ever since for a long-anticipated sign from God, which has finally appeared in

Unlucky/Lucky 13: Will your luck hold-out in 2013?
The number 13 can mean different things to different people. In some cultures, the number is auspicious, heralding the blessings of the gods. In western culture, the opposite is true: you’re more likely to run afoul with the cosmos.
Whether unlucky or lucky, that number is significant.

I've finished nearly 63,000 words out of my target 80,000 words for the first draft of Frontiers, the sequel to my recently released techno-thriller, CYBERSP@CE. This is going to be a great trilogy, culminating in a third novel, tentatively entitled, New Beginnings.
I'm excited to be nearly finished with Book Two, and I have high hopes for the series!
Good Evening, Everyone.
I thought I'd re-post the link to the trailer and to Amazon now that the novel is released.
I hope you'll give it a read, I think many of you will enjoy it! If you like it, please share!
Cybersp@ce on Amazon:
So I finally got a draft of the book cover for my novel. It was a mountain scene with the river snaking forward. This has nothing to do with my book so I've asking for a new cover citing four examples from the story.
So here's my question, should the cover image reflect the story in some way or am I smoking dope again?

Spread the word!
After a long wait CYBERSP@CE is now available in eBook format as well as paperback on Amazon!!!
Paperback- Only $11.99!
Hi all I posted this before on here a couple of years ago in a contest, and I've been thinking lately of lengthening it and turning it into an eBook if there was sufficient interest. Does anyone here see any redeeming value, or should the short story remain just that? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
