Two for the Price of None – FREE Scifi

Get my robot SciFi shorts FREE on 1/1/14 The Energy Scavengers and The One Who Turned Them On at Amazon.com.

I’m running a promotion for new Science Fiction short “The One Who Turned Them On” the second installment in The Energy Scavengers Series. Coincidentally, Amazon is price-matching the first installment “The Energy Scavengers” for free as well. Now you can get both stories for nothing! Download and enjoy.

“The One Who Turned Them On” (Energy Scavengers II)

Synopsis: On a planet exclusively populated by alien robots, machines struggle to find purpose after abandonment by their creators. Kairos, the highly intelligent and massive weather-machine, monitors the world with cold academic curiosity atop of the great canyon system. He cares only for storms and other significant meteorological events. While below, common worker-bots scavenge daily to find scraps of power that will allow them to subsist in this increasingly savage environment. The Body, a growing robot-collective, is slowly taking over the canyons and oppressing all those that resist its will. Viewing any free power source as a threat, The Body, moves to enlist Kairos in its quest to destroy a mythic, sky-deity who has been benevolently restoring power to injured and disabled machines. Only Ophis, an insignificant and crippled worker-bot, stands in the path of this nefarious task. Will Kairos look beyond his own self-interests, or will he too kow-tow to the collective?

Series Overview: This is the second installment in a robot-themed series which tells the story exclusively through the eyes of machines. The works are interconnected but can stand on their own.

“The Energy Scavengers” (Energy Scavengers I)

Synopsis: When mankind reaches far out into the universe to find other life forms it may first find machines. A string of planets on the outer edges of the Milky Way contain the mechanical workers of an ancient alien civilization. Calvin, an exploratory rover coupled with, Nutshell, his landing ship, are sent to discover what all these machines are still doing–now that they’ve been abandoned by their alien owners. First contact comes not by hand of man, but by metal of machine.

First TV Appearance and FREE Day

I’m having a couple FREE days on Amazon for “The One Who Turned Them On” to celebrate my television debut (on 12/10/13 and 12/11/13).

My wonderful author friend, Lydia Ponczak, who hosts “News & Views” in Oak Forest, Illinois (USA) allowed me to come on her community television show and talk about my writings and new book. It was a great experience and I am very grateful to them for making it so. The show broadcasts to local community stations (Comcast channels 19 and 4; AT&T U-verse channel 99; Wowway channel 6) this evening, but you can watch it online here. Check it out: http://vimeo.com/80665740#t=1895s
