AN ARTICLE WORTH READING TIME

I am posting this on the landing page so that people may see it.  It is also on the IDEAS page

IS SPACE EXPLORATION WORTH THE COST?

This article, on the Sci-Tech Universe site, should be read, for a number of reasons.  

The information it gives is important, not because it contradicts the argument that space exploration is too costly to sustain (which it does), but also because it is so centered on the US economy.  It gives the slightest of nods to other world space nations, with a huge non-acknowledgement of  European endeavours.  It shows how vital to the US amour-propre space exploration has become and how necessary it is that the US should lead the whole world into space.

A NEW PAGE FOR CHARACTERS

CHARACTERS – from Different Places

I HAVE OPENED A NEW PAGE, featuring characters from independently published books.   They introduce themselves and tell us about themselves, but they are not being interviewed.  They reflect and comment, each in their own way.  If they intrigue us, then we can go to the book(s) they appear in and discover more.

The first featured character is one of mine – of course.  My favourite villain, Darland Courvenier.

During the next few weeks, more characters will appear on the page, coming from a variety of genres.

There are some very fine characters out there.  And there’s no doubt about it.   They make the book.
