You might notice one thing fairly quickly — we’re an interesting, diverse bunch of people. Fascinating, even. So what are we all doing hanging out here? Well, all of us love writing, and we love science fiction. Sooner or later, we were all going to get around to writing science fiction. We write all different […]

A trailer for the upcoming superhero movie Lucy starring Scarlet Johannson and directed, written, and co-produced by Luc Besson, looked pretty damn awesome until I reached 1:13 … … That’s when Morgan Freeman, portraying a professor and scientific researcher who should have known better, said, “It is estimated most human beings only use ten percent […]

Dangerous Rendezvous

Greetings! Heather Massey here. I run a sci-fi romance blog called The Galaxy Express. I’m also an author of the genre. Having sold a science fiction romance to SilkWords, I’m here as an ambassador to discuss the topic of interactive stories. Where did they come from, where are they now, and where will they be […]

The future is now. And the ethical implications are…uncertain. We’re on the verge of literally being able to change people’s minds in the here and now. There are new medications—or new uses for medications—that will allow people to change how memory and trauma affect them. Anti-depressants already alter the chemistry of our brains for better […]

Science fiction romance

The most famous treasure hunter of all time is of course, Indiana Jones. He’s raced across our screens in pursuit of treasure (and to save the day!) with his fedora, bullwhip and fear of snakes. I read a super fun fact about Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day: that R2D2 and C3PO appear […]

erotic science fiction romance by Charlotte Stein

Recently I read Almost Real, a wonderful erotic science fiction romance by Charlotte Stein. When I finished, I knew I’d enjoyed it, but I was also struck by the intensity of the story in a way that made me think of how much I do enjoy “claustrophobic” science fiction. In this case, two highly trained […]

The year is 2036 and we now live in a grim world. Art and culture have been outlawed and freedom is a thing of the past. But in a secret location, a rebellion is forming. A rebellion of dancing soldiers… This is the premise of the new video from Jabbawockeez, an eight-member hip-hop dance crew […]

Science fiction romance

The countdown is on to the release of AT STAR’S END on March 31st! Today I’m excited to share the very first excerpts from the thrill ride of a space adventure. First lines: Dr. Eos Rai gripped the edge of her seat and gritted her teeth. The pilot of her hired minishuttle executed a dizzying […]

The future is already here in many ways, bringing us ethical challenges that make for fantastic stories and gripping conflicts, both now and in the distant future. Some of those issues have been explored in blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, which speculates about a present in which science has outstripped present progress. Bringing back the […]

Yikes! February is almost over and I nearly missed my blog date AGAIN! This time I can totally blame the hubby. He introduced me to Marvel Puzzle Quest and all I can say is thank all the powers that be that I’m not on a horrific deadline because I am ADDICTED. I don’t play a […]

Dirk_Gently_(2010)

I heard the words, “the fundamental interconnectedness of all things,” while hunched over my laptop at the dining table. I couldn’t see the TV but I could see my husband. “Is that Dirk Gently?” I asked. Voice infused with incredulity, he said, “How did you know? It’s only the first minute of the show.” He […]
