The Predicates of Fate: Robots and Time Travel Make for a Quick Summer Read

Ah, summer. The time when you just want to grab a fun book for a quick beach read. There’s nothing like sitting outdoors with a cool drink and a great story. The main character in my book, “The Predicates of Fate”, starts off just like that (except a crossword puzzle is his diversion of choice) when he’s suddenly confronted by some nasty aliens and a rift in time.

One of the joys of the written word is its ability to take you away to wonderful new worlds where imagination is limitless. My debut novel fits that mold: it has time travel, space ships, robot uprisings, distant worlds, martial arts and swordplay. And jokes. Don’t forget the jokes.

I wrote this book to be something that would have entertained me; it’s the kind of science fiction book I would have loved…had I not written it myself. Among the points going for it:

  • Not very long
  • Not very expensive (i.e., it’s cheap!)
  • Fast-paced with lots of action
  • Contains some big sci-fi ideas

As a life-long sci-fi fan, I wrote the book both as an entry into the genre I love but also as somewhat of a parody, purposefully using many of the tropes commonly seen in speculative fiction, but not in a mean way. I poke fun lovingly.

So if you find yourself at the beach this summer with a hole in your reading schedule, give “The Predicates of Fate” a shot. Just like our main character, you’ll be thrust into a future robot war. Figuratively, of course. I hope.

“The Predicates of Fate” is sure to thrill and amuse fans of adventure sci-fi comedy like Red Dwarf, Futurama and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

    This book looks interesting. Fast paced and sci fi 🙂 and the cheap part helps a ton too 🙂

  2. 🙂 – I enjoy parodies! I enjoy a good verbal or written twist of a genre that for the most part, takes itself very seriously.
    Which is why I love Galaxy Quest so much, I guess. lol
    If the premise is along those lines, then it sounds like a terrific premise for a story with some fun along the way. Sounds like a winner.

  3. Interesting concept
