  1. I recently finished a book called Discipline by Paco Ahlgren. I don't normally spend time on forums, but this book has me so intrigued, that I must know if anyone else had read it. It was written over 7 years ago, and it's about time travel. The things this book touches upon are closely linked to what is going on in today's world, specifically our economy, the state of the nations, and digital currency. I was blown away by the accuracy of this book. How did the author know? Was it just mere coincidence? I did some research on the author, and this is the only book he's written. Any thoughts by
  2. Hey I'm unapologetically going to show off my new novel Waking Dreams. "Devon Prower was a having a pretty normal day for an almost broke college student. Sitting in his broken down car, waiting for the mechanic to come and dreading the end of summer break. That is until the dragon showed up above his quiet suburban town. The next minute it was gone, a hallucination. Hallucinations that came back with a giant striding through the hills. But hallucinations don't usually cause huge tremors everyone can feel in an area with no other explanation for them. Hallucinations definitely don't incl
  3. Arthur C. Clarke is such a good writer it’s hard not to chuckle even when he is trying to explain the most complex of scientific facts or theories. Also, he has the gift of explaining complicated stuff in a clear everyday way. Also, he’s a genius - with a brilliant imagination. I had no idea I was going to enjoy reading ‘Profiles of the Future’, especially since it was first published in 1962, (revisited in 1972 to make a few modest notes against some of his future predictions that had within that decade become common fact.) The essence of this work of non-fiction is that given the state of
  4. This Hugo and Nebula Award-winning science fiction novel, written in 1969, is a worthy classic. It has been mentioned alongside Tolkien’s 'Lord of the Rings' and Frank Herbert’s 'Dune', which is unfortunate and could put some people off. However, it is definitely sufficiently different from either to stand alone. The world is called Winter and located in a far part of the galaxy. It could be Earth except for two significant differences: its climate is Arctic, and its inhabitants are sexless - until they come into ‘kemmer’ - and even that has its twist. Both these differences give this novel
  5. I was wondering if anyone has read books that they feel predicted the future -- you know, were written ahead of their time. I just finished Discipline by Paco Ahlgren, and I must admit, I was surprisingly shocked by some of the subjects this author touched on, especially since it was written over 7 years ago. What he wrote about is exactly what is going on today with our economy and the US dollar. Coincidence? Insight? He's an intelligent man with a history of being educated in finance and physics, but still... I can't help but wonder just how he knew, if he knew at all. I also heard some
