▶ Ruin: A Post Apocalyptic Short Film – YouTube


My favorite thing about this short film: the cicadas in the background. Thanks Curio!

Curio Reverie

It’s been a while since I posed a good short film, but I stumbled across this in my ramblings. Excellent computer animation. Make sure to watch to the very end. There’s a little tidbit at the end for ya.

Who knew there was so much ‘stuff’ in space?


 

This is a great update from Wired Science about our favorite space probe Voyager 1 (V’Ger) and how it is baffling scientists.  Even though I’ve written science fiction based on solar winds and ion flows I didn’t know they were real till I read this report.  It seems that there are predicted regions between and around solar systems where different energies flow and interact.  Interestingly, the data coming back from V’Ger is not at all what scientists predicted.

Intergalactic researchers had a map of what they thought the boundaries between our solar wind and the galactic cosmic rays would look like, but they are wrong.  Our protective solar wind died of much more quickly than anticipated and, even more unexpected, the galactic cosmic rays are not coming from random sides, but seem to come mainly from one direction…

This fuels the scifi part of my brain.  What else could they be wrong about?  What else will they find when V’Ger makes its way further outside our solar system.  Could interstellar travel be closer than we think?

(OK, OK so V’Ger was actually Voyager 6.  Give me a break, I’m a nerd not a Trekkie.)

 


Shard Seeker on the ‘Archive’ Blog


sn-largeststructure

Back in January I started posting bite sized pieces of a short story entitled ‘Shard Seeker’.  I just uploaded the compiled story to my other Blog for your reading pleasure:

A shard seeker on the frontier of space is haunted by her past and hounded by her employer.  Will her wits and skills be enough to strike a deal that will put her back into space and onto the trail of what was lost?

Read ‘The Shard Seeker’ and find out.

A while back I posted an excerpt from a scifi project I worked on 8 years ago.  This morning I posted the entire, though still incomplete, project on my author’s page jaurelguay.wordpress.com.  It still needs a little editing, but I’m working on that despite its incompleteness.  Go give it a read and tell me what you think!


A message for Amaleia – Short Fiction

Random Image SciFi Writing Contest #2 progress:

See full current story

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4,

Part 5:

With a shaking hand Amaleia took the paper from her uncle. He didn’t wait for her to read it but turned and silently left the room, leaving her alone with the documents, the letter and her nurse.

My Dearest Amaleia,

As your father I want you to know that you have grown to be nothing less that the living visage of your departed mother. How I loved her, and how I have always loved you. Over the next weeks I may be coming and going a lot, my business keeps me from you at times but do not think that I ever stop thinking about you. I’ve hired a nurse to be with you through this time of coming and going. Her name is Nan, and I expect her to arrive any day. Please make her welcome and obey her like the good little girl I know you are. I will return from Marosea soon, and we will have a picnic among the scarps as soon as I return, I promise.

With all my Love,

Father

RISFWC #2 update


I just posted the 4th part to the Random Image Science Fiction Writing Contest #2!  The 5th is already written and posting scheduled for later today.  If you find that part 4 doesn’t have enough action for you just wait till this afternoon 😉

I was feeling the ‘seasonal affective’ yesterday and blasted out over 1,200 words in an hour or so as therapy.  Despite being inspired by a handful of random images this is turning out to be one of my favorite stories.  I’m going to give it its own page on here so that it is easier for newcomers to follow.  Be looking for that too!
