A Collection of Stories
by Duain Bennett
Beyond the year 2022, the Earth is experiencing scarcity that people dare to travel in space to find either raw materials or a new habitat. If they cant find one, they may make one. Humans are slowly but surely getting accustomed to meet alien life-forms from different galaxies, and the new experience is quite an adventure. With this big leap in intergalactic happenstance, could it be that the Apocalypse is just a rumor? a myth? Or something just intervenes?
Duain Bennetts rich imagination creates a spur of the moment, humorous collection of sci-fi spoofs that could have taken place anywhere at anytime.
Laugh as the top men of two mining companies outsmart and outmaneuver each other in their search for mining prospects in space, and then work together to increase their profits through schemes that will otherwise be disastrous if it hasnt been beneficial to Earth in The New World in the Making.
Be amused as a sixty-five year-old man, planning an exciting summer sailing, meets a twenty-one-year-old daughter of the one who discovered ancient aliens and gets his adventure of a lifetime in search for a disk that will stop Apocalypse in The Pontoon Houseboat.
Discover the funny side of a different kind of love story between a young scientist, his colleagues, and the robots from outer space in Things.
Chuckle at every turn as two friends and their wives ride their modified vehicles against visiting aliens in The Race of the Worlds.
Lastly, turn back time in The Little Black Time Box, where a professor and his two women colleagues try to discover how a little time box can affect events and people while at the same time exploring possible relationships that will get your mind in the gutter.
