And now Jim has produced a couple of fine and funny science fiction stories. He comes from a hard science background, but with his funny bone intact. The first story is:
Proton, protector of the innocent and oppressed, roams the world of Chem fighting evil and injustice. But if she can't escape the ambush she has wandered into, all life on Chem will be in peril.An adult story for those who appreciate chemistry.
When Amanda Murphy accepted the command of the spaceship that would test a revolutionary new propulsion system she didn’t bother to ask why she was selected over dozens of veteran Captains with more rank and seniority. Until, that is, she learned that the computer would actually have total control of her ship. A human couldn’t think fast enough to make course corrections at the speeds the Dark Drive was capable of reaching. But what if something went wrong?
Both books are available as ebooks from Amazon and Smashwords
(and soon through B&N and iTunes and Sony and Kobo) and in paperback from Amazon or CreateSpace.
I'd put previews or teasers up, but they are in a nicer format at the bookseller sites anyway.
