"Ancient Cosmologies and Modern Prophets" Day 1 of SEAC 2012

Welcome to Ljubljana, Slovenia!

Being a cultural astronomer and member of SEAC has taken me to places in Europe I have never imagined. Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia until 1992. Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia. It has a river running through it and a castle above it. This time of year…

Preview of the new short story series by H. Wolfgang Porter, 'THE PANDORA ULTIMATUM'

Way back when I was a kid, I wrote two sci-fi space operas for an ongoing homemade comic series. They were popular with the kids in my school. Too popular, because someone decided they wanted it more than I did! I hadn't written in the sci-fi genre since then because I feel it necessary to be serious about the balance between the story and tech. I didn't want to get overwhelmed by either. Well, after so long a silence on sci-fi I've worked out the bugs and…

Basilica of Santa Croce...



A pleasant recollection birthed serindipitously from yesterday's posting: I visited the Basilica of Santa Croce in 2000, well before 9-11, a trip my wife won to Italy - Rome and Florence - for her sales at Dell.


I recall it was somber, silent except for the tourists - of which we…

REALITY

My new novella Reality is available now in ebook format from Amazon. This is an action packed fast moving adult novel set more than 3 million years in the past before humanity diversified into races to the most advanced society our planet has ever known. Dark brown people from the continent of Africa have settled around the world in the temperate zone. This is not a teen age dystopian story with a hero motif. This novella tells the story of a ten centuries long feud between two families. One…

As Dreams Are Made On...

Prospero:

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,

As I foretold you, were all spirits, and

Are melted into air, into thin air:

And like the baseless fabric of this vision,

The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,

The solemn temples, the great globe itself,

Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,

And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,

Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff…

Added a "New Books" page to my website

I've been thinking about this for a while, that I should have a page for the new additions to the website, then after a month or so, move them to the appropriate page.

So today I did it. http://www.alienstarbooks.com/new-books.html

Question on Grad School Program of Neuroscience

Posted by AL Bey on November 19, 2017 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

Hello Peeps,

Currently I'm in the final stages of applying for a grad program at Michigan State called Literary Neuroscience. This program has had "general" internet info circulating for maybe only 7 years, with arguably a location of no more than 5 schools in the whole USA. After taking the GRE today and sending out my scores to these scores, I was curious in wondering, "Are there any predominantly/historically black schools that house programs with similar combined studies of literature and cognition?" Even though the term "literary neuroscience" is relatively new, I'm sure the concept isn't. As an old saying goes, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Plus, one of thee world's foremost conventional experts on Brain Surgery & Neuroscience is renown doctor/author, Ben Carson, also from Detroit, MI. If anyone has answers and/or feedback to this vital question, let me know. And even if I do end up in Michigan, East Lansing is likely to be somewhat of a post-gentrified Nu…

CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by KENNETH E JAMES on November 18, 2017 at 12:53pm 0 Comments

That's right i said it Challenge for the week if you are an Artist,Writer, whatever the case. If you are a writer do 10 Pages a day for the next week and prove it by Saturday the 25th. That is 70 pages by one week. Now here is the caveat you have to do it in the time frame of your normal day if you cant than try using an hour by hour schedule to see what you are doing that is wasting some time. Nuff said we are all adults here we go!

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
