An Anthology of Possible Futures . . .
The Old Man- Living a long time can have unexpected wrinkles- in more ways than one.
Lightship- Necessity is the mother of invention. Boredom helps too. Technology may lend a hand. Is it all enough to cause a guy to invent a new kind of spaceship?
Long Shot- People rarely leave vengeance to the Lord. After a nuclear war that leaves the Northern Hemisphere in shambles, what’s left of American leadership wants the Russian who started it to pay. There’s a small problem- only the Navy has the reach to complete the mission after so much of the U.S. and the world has been destroyed. Can the ships and planes of the fleet get the job done? Damage Report- It’s fun to think about space aliens in flying saucers coming to visit, or even coming to invade. If there are any who can get here, they certainly wouldn’t need a flying dish to explore a strange planet. If there are any who would like to live here, they may be waiting until the crowd gets out of the way. Maybe they won’t have to wait very long.
