Science Fiction Shorts – PB Box Set


Thank you for choosing to read some of our favorite short stories. Most of them represent ideas that do not fall within one of the main plots of our novels. Still, they need to be told for enjoyment and for awareness of things that could go wrong. Most writers are aware of the principle behind the following quote about Chekhov’s Gun:
“Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.” 
- Anton Chekhov
Historically, Chekhov’s Gun has proven valid with every deadly scientific or technological advancement. If it can fail, it will. If it can kill, it will. 
We are approaching a day when reprogramming and creating new DNA will be relatively simple with computer-assisted development and engineering tools such as CRISPR-cas9 available to anyone. The quote that begins in my soon to be published novel, Genecaust, expresses my thoughts:
A Holocaust must be remembered so it will never happen again. A Genecaust must be anticipated so it will never happen.
