Featured Website: Author Stuart Miller

Visit Stuart Miller’s Website to read about how experiences of rejection, bullying, education, friendship, and more lead to the book Stopping a Dangerous Revolution: Providing insight into some of the biggest cultural and social challenges with solutions.

Stuart recently added a page of “Recognizing Author Supporters,” to bring more attention to other indie writers. I’m grateful for the inclusion there and that so many indie creatives amplify each other’s voices.

“There are most definitely flavours of Star Trek: Discovery....”

Tik Tok SciFi Booktok.

“The site is on fire!” His voice cut out. “… swarms of them, dipping in and out of the atmosphere and killing us with some kind of ray.”

From Sons of Taldra: A Science Fiction Adventure

Duane Simolke

“There are most definitely flavours of Star Trek: Discovery, which is particularly interesting as the book was published in 2016 - a full year before the first series of the aforementioned show. Just like Discovery, there is a broad spectrum of diverse characters - each with purpose and prominence, and despite being a short read, everyone fits in perfectly without any overcrowding.” –Doctor Who Online

Not The Future Funny Star Wars Video

For #StarWars newbies who need the clarification: "Extended version of the song featured in the Empire Strikes Back Bad Lip Reading." It's funny, the music is good, and the nostalgia makes it even better. @BadLipReading #scifi Not The Future.

I also love their Star Wars video Seagulls (Stop It Now!).

A Satisfying Collection of SciFi Stories

J. D. Sanderson’s Around the Dark Dial blends everyday characters and situations with the fantastic while also mixing storytelling elements of classic science fiction with modern concerns. Most of the stories seem to stand alone, but even that line gets blurred. Sanderson brings it all together in a satisfying collection that should appeal to science fiction fans or anyone else who enjoys well-told, thought-provoking stories.
