Star Trek author and historian Larry Nemecek reads from my novel

These days remind me very much of the 70’s; The world is in turmoil, hip hop (the new disco) has pushed out the dark, whiny music that came before it, and America is war weary. In those days, Star Trek was returning to TV in syndication and catching the eye of a youth culture more interested in an optimistic vision of the future than a monster of the week shoot-em-up. As a child, it caught my eye, never letting go. In those days, there was a toy called the G.I. Joe. Joe went through a transformation in the 70’s, becoming more adventurer than soldier. He and his buddies were called action figures, part of an adventure team. My favorite play memories are of a sandbox and my adventure team.

This universe, this future, which I created for the Indravati, this is my new sandbox. I often think about the future and how I’d like things to be. I see a future where people find worth in bettering themselves and those around them, where politicians and corporations are held in check by the goodwill of those same people. Crazy, right? I do what I can to make the dream real by writing stories that espouse the value of not being a dumb-ass or a selfish prick.

The time is right for stories of hope and adventure. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do writing them.

    Much thanks to one of the celebrities from the Pensacola Comic Con 2016. This is Larry "Dr. Trek" Nemecek, who was kind enough to stop by my table and pose for a picture.
