I'm very pleased to offer you a ten story collection of my science fiction and fantasy stories. I have been a fan of science fiction since I was a child watching the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs in the 1960's. I began, like most children, reading comic books mostly related to science fiction. Super heroes, UFO's, aliens, anything that smacked of science fiction or fantasy I would read it. And any movie or television show with science fiction or fantasy elements were my staple of entertainment viewing, and believe me the special effects weren't what they are today. What was common about science fiction and fantasy stories then was the stories often had uplifting endings and the good guys won. They always won. Or if they didn't win the story told how they survived their terrible circumstances. Don't misunderstand me I really still love science fiction today, even without endings where the hero clearly wins. I hope you enjoy this collection of my stories and hope they will become your favorites as they are mine. In the science fiction section of this collection you will find stories with impossible odds, satire where the fast food companies run the future, AI robots locked in a civil war, and space travelers with very human problems. In the fantasy section are stories of alternate realities, a vampire castaway, dragons, cheerleaders, and a man asked to fix a UFO. It's quite a collection and diverse enough for most readers of fantastic fiction to enjoy.
