Steve Dean's Short Story All In The Timing

All in the Timing

Where the idea for this story came from, I don’t know. I was sitting in front of my computer with a blank document open trying to create some short story ideas when this one arrived. It’s a near-future SF story about a young man who is something of an artist. It’s not to be taken seriously, but it does predict the future.

Genetic Programming

What is a moral dilemma? While in self-drive mode and faced with a collision, the car might have to decide who or what to run into.

I hope you like it.

Alien Interaction

Astronomers have been finding exoplanets out there. Planets may mean life, although this doesn’t necessarily mean intelligent life. The question is not why we haven’t found them yet. It’s more like how they will react when they do turn up. Will they steal our water and make us into burgers, or will they bring immortality and reliable Wi-Fi?
