One way to Mars

(This is a complete story that was once presented in serial form ) ~ ONE WAY TO MARS ~ We started a joke… In June of 2067, the world finally ran out of 12-year-old Scotch. It was also the 100th anniversary of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This had many people wondering why we... Continue Reading →

Once, in a blue moon

What happens up there on that day-faded see-through moon? (A long long sail, by any nautical standard.) No one is certain. My scholarly theory says there are silent factories dug down deeply. There, they make cups and saucers. (But not the kind you think) The Engineers think and design. The Builders build. And, many thousands... Continue Reading →

I had a brother.....I have a brother! Michael and I were separated during the great invasion of 2067. World communications had been disrupted, or destroyed altogether. The last I knew, he had been working in the space program. There were missions to Mars that had taken flight before and after the invasion, but I did... Continue Reading →

Earth, Mars, and beyond.

"Raymond, before you ask, I know who they are, where they have been, and where they are going.  I know, perhaps, why you are all so happy, but I am puzzled as to why there's so little dissention amongst you....I've been told things that amaze me, excite me and fill me with awe."
