When Science Makes Fiction Obsolete

It used to be that you could write a novel and put it in a drawer for six to twelve months. In fact, that used to be recommended. Lately, you can’t stop for long at all before your science fiction just becomes the present. NASA has just validated the principles behind an “impossible” space drive, […]

It’s time to go “In the Black”!

I’m pleased to announce Carina Press has just released “In the Black”, the first book in my new series, “Tales from the Edge”. It’s a rip-roaring science fiction romance/adventure series with I like to explain as “Firefly” meets “Best Little Whorehouse”… but why not read an excerpt and you can judge for yourself? *** This […]

erotic science fiction romance by Charlotte Stein

Claustrophobic SF and its intensity

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 […]

To boldly smooch where we haven’t smooched before

Speaking of sci-fi romance and anniversaries, we recently passed the 45th anniversary of the first scripted interracial kiss between a white man and a black woman on American television in the Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren.” The episode aired to U.S. audiences on November 22, 1968. The kiss between Uhura and Kirk wasn’t the first interracial […]

Science Fiction Romance

Let me start where it all began. In my dad’s book collection. Like any good dad, he made sure to build my Nancy Drew collection and when the time came, Jane Austen and the Brontes, but he also gave me hard cover Stephen Kings for birthdays and Christmases when I got to my teens. But […]

Hi-Octane for Breakfast: The SFR of Nathalie Gray

When you hear the words ‘Science Fiction Romance’, what type of scene automatically springs to mind? Is it two lovers floating in zero-g, with or without sparkly bedclothes, for a well-earned HEA? Is it a pair of doomed friends-turned-lovers aiming their cripped flier into the munitions hold of an enemy base ship? Is it a […]

Sci-Fi Quiz: Movie Couples

From budding teen romances to epic love sagas that cross light-years and even alien species, the pairing of science fiction movie couples has kept us enthralled, nauseous, captivated, and eye-rollingly amused for decades now. Some take centre stage, while others bubble away in the background. The best are for the ages; the worst can suck even the most promising premise into […]

Paranormal – Sci-fi Romance FREE Read

I read somewhere the other day that the first science fiction story is considered to be Lucian’s (a Syrian author of the 2nd century), True History. Apparently it’s filled with travels to space, aliens and interplanetary warfare! I am feeling super motivated to track it down and see what it’s all about! My son’s name […]

I’m honored to be among this interesting, intelligent, fun and creative group of authors. – J.L. Hilton Cathy Pegau Caught in […]

Cover art: Stellarnet Prince by J.L. Hilton

I finally received the cover for my next book, Stellarnet Prince, which is coming out in November. Not that the art was late or anything, I was just impatient to see it! I’m so excited about this next installment in the Stellarnet Series. I think I’m starting to feel like a “real” author now that […]
