“The Stars in Hoshi’s Eyes” is Out!

I got the email while I was on a work call. The Saturday Evening Post wanted to buy a story of mine called “The Stars in Hoshi’s Eyes”. THE SATURDAY EVENING POST! This is the American magazine that was started in 1897, has featured famous illustrations by Norman Rockwell, and contained the best American writers like Agatha Christie, Ray Bradbury, and John Steinbeck. It was dizzying to say the least, and it was pretty much …

It also breaks new ground, for me, exploring the philosophical and religious implications of a non-biological human consciousness, and some of the …

Let me give you a few examples: Ever tried to drag a recalcitrant teenager (and I am speaking here from when I was one) on what seems to you like so much fun. Like hiking five miles to see Native American petroglyphs you just learned about. Or …
