9781463583064: Intriguing Science Fiction Short Stories and Tributes: Thrilling Adventures in Fantasy

Subtitle: "Thrilling Adventures in Fantasy" Among the subjects covered, is "time travel", "living prehistoric monsters of the deep", "Alfred Hitchcock -- a master of Sci-Fi as well as suspense", "Bigfoot -- a mystery finally solved?", and "UFOs -- a subject of reality and science fiction". With this book (at approximately 9,712 words in length), I have returned to my short story roots. I feel that stories of science fiction give many of us a nice little departure from the difficult realities of life and a short vacation from our problems. While we know the stories are derived from fantasy, we still find pleasure in contemplating the “what ifs” they present to our adventurous minds. It is my hope that the stories and tributes within the chapters of this book will do this very thing for its readers. - Jim Lowrance TABLE OF CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONE: The Day I Killed the Kickaloo Lake Monster (A Fish Tale of Science Fiction) CHAPTER TWO: Time Traveling 30 Years to the Past and Back to the Future (Jolted from 2009 to 1979 in a Split Second) CHAPTER THREE: Time Traveling Radio Transmissions (The Air Fan Who Knew Too Much) CHAPTER FOUR: Alfred Hitchcock: Master of SciFi as well as Suspense (My Tribute to the World’s Greatest Movie Director) CHAPTER FIVE: Has the Mystery of Bigfoot Finally Been Solved? One Man's Claim to Understanding the History of Sasquatch CHAPTER SIX: UFOs -- A Subject of Science Fiction and Reality When Life Mimics the Movies or is it the other Way Around?

About the Author:

I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in successful invention marketing. I also have extensive experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I received Editor's Choice Awards for my articles on health subjects. I am a huge fan of Science Fiction, Adventure and Suspense-Thrillers.

Review:

In this collection of short stories the author covers a variety of topics, which he narrates in a traditional fireside manner. These are stories your grandfather might have told at family gatherings. ...The author engages his audience in a manner which entertains without demanding more than a willing ear. I believe these stories would be good for young children, who might find delight in their telling, and re-telling. ...Read the stories aloud at the campsite, the little ones may find wonder in them, which will put a smile on all the adult's faces...
--An Amber Jones. Editorial Review
