About this title

Synopsis:

Good stories are about people Good science fiction stories are about science and people. So how to you put good science into a story that is about people? That's what this book is about. It's about looking for how science changes peoples' lives, and how to make that change an interesting story about people. This is about making Technofiction-science fiction where science matters as much as characters. Welcome to a Tales of Technofiction book.

About the Author:

In Roger's words, "More than most people, I've 'been there and done that' And while I was doing it, I was taking notes" Roger is a careful observer of the human condition, technology, and history, and this is what he writes about. He was a soldier in Vietnam in the sixties, an engineering student at MIT in the seventies, a personal-computer pioneer in the eighties, and a writer, traveler, and teacher in the nineties. He has visited twenty countries and worked in five. He has worked in five industries with both superstar and falling star companies. He's seen a lot. Other Fun Facts about Roger Helped engineer the Space Shuttle Climbed 4,000 meter peaks in the Colorado Rockies and bicycled from Boston to Minnesota Is a nephew of Margaret Bourke-White, photographer for Life magazine Has a commercial pilot's license with an IFR rating Was one of the first hundred people to play Dungeons
