SciFi Short stories for Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Carl Sagan Fans

As a writer of scifi short stories, I can’t overstate the impact of authors like Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Carl Sagan. Not only were their ideas interesting, their characters were engaging, and their stories inspiring. Those golden age scifi stories said “Imagination is a powerful tool that you can use, too!” I felt seen, I felt understood. My dream as a kid was to make universes like they did, and so if you’re reading this, you’re seeing my dream come true.

I think there’s compelling evidence to suggest we’re entering a new Golden Age of science fiction, and I want to be a part of it. Improvising on Golden Age scifi is to great writers what jazz standards are to great musicians. These stories are my variations on those old ‘comfort food’ concepts. Welcome to my treasure box of new twists on classic tales.

  Let Me Tell You a Scifi Story - Science Fiction Short Stories Call of the Void “I picked up his trail at the edge of a crater. Over my shoulder, three moons dangled in the reddish-purple sky. Faint starlight outlined the junky little craft I use for rescue trips. My spacecraft has no frills, no creature comforts: just two seats and basic life support. With luck, that’s all I’ll need to save this kid’s life. The control surfaces on this spacesuit sucked. I could feel worn plastic and clunky attenuators when I put it on. The third-class air filtration smelled like farts and dirty sweat socks. If I had time, I’d trade with the locals to buy better gear, but I don’t. We’re on the clock. The kid’s been here for weeks. If I don’t get him out in the next few hours, he’s not coming back at all.” Ryan is a kid with a past. In order to find his future, he has to help someone else find theirs. What will he find out there on an uncharted moon: ruin, remorse, or … redemption? He better find out fast, because time is running out.
