One last book give-away. The Kindle edition of Book of Dreams Second Edition: Science Fiction and Speculative Fiction Short Stories is free for one day only on Wednesday March 13. You can download it from Amazon here: Book of Dreams 2nd Edition.

About the book (From Amazon.com): This expanded Second Edition contains three new stories in addition to the five original short stories that appeared in the first edition published in August of 2011.

What really caused the catastrophic failure after the first full-scale test of the Large Hadron Collider?
Motivated, ingenious terrorists are about to try their own field
experiment to replicate the classified results of the test on a large
scale using two suitcase nukes and a modified jetliner in an attack
that, if successful, will eradicate all life on earth, destroy our
corner of the universe and, in time, give birth to a new addition to the
multiverse.

If we could communicate with the other sentient, intelligent species with whom we share our planet, what vital lessons
might we learn from them and they from us?

In a not too distant future in which all human beings on earth are connected and integrated
into a single neural net, what price might be exacted for one wishing to
opt out?

What price would you pay to revisit a crossroad in your
life when you had made a terrible, life altering mistake? Would you
give up an unfulfilled life for the chance of virtual happiness in an
alternate reality?

Would you sacrifice everything if you could attain absolute knowledge? If so, could you live with the knowledge you attained?

It is said that no man is an island, but what if even the least among us is a god in his/her own right?

If an alien visitor offered you a lifetime of health and the gift of
telepathy for a small service, would you be quick to accept?

If we purportedly use only a small fraction of our brain's capacity, what
possible purpose does the apparently unused portion serve?

Above are some of the questions raised in this collection of science fiction
and speculative fiction short stories that explores the
interrelationship between dreams and reality, the nature of reality
itself, and the dangers attendant to the single-minded pursuit of wish
fulfillment that all too often results in unexpected and unwanted
consequences.

Thanks for the gift! Now, to get time to read it :-) I have always loved science fiction that is within the range of possibility in my mind. I don't like the genre that emphasizes horror.

I guess there's a possibility that Mars might have supported life. Hmmmm.
