For the last several years, I’ve had a free sale for my ebook of political stories, Political Pies, around the Fourth of July. Normally, I’d just have one ebook free at a time, but last year I started doing big sales with four or five at a time, which seemed to work better. So here are the four ebooks that will be free to download from Thursday July 1st, through Monday July 5th. So grab them before you get too drunk.
Everybody complains about politics, but does anyone do anything about it? My attempt to do something about it is to collect forty of my short stories with a political element into this anthology. The stories are either politically neutral or equally condemning of the national parties. Instead of trying to sway you to one ideology or another, my goal is to just get people thinking about politics in the hopes a rose might grow out of all the political manure.
As a science fiction writer, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how technology will change the way we live. I’ve come up with these ten short essays about science fictional elements that will – almost certainly – one day become science fact as a way for people to start coming to terms with them. Because I’ve spent time thinking about clones and AIs, I feel I’ll be okay when they do finally show up whereas most people will probably freak out. I hope these essays will get people to start thinking about the future because, no matter what we do, the future is coming.
