To all of my regular visitors, hi, and thank you for your continuous patronage and support, without which I couldn’t have done this. Again, thank you my friends!
To any new visitors, greetings and welcome to Dad2059’s Webzine of Science Fiction, Science Fact and Esoterica.
This project started out as a personal blog, but soon started to take on a lifeforce and personality of its own.
Partisan politics was the primary purpose of the blog and many of my friends still participate in that endeavor, but I soon discovered a “world” behind the world, and all isn’t quite what it seems.
So partisan politics started to take a backseat to studies of the New World Order and its various incarnations throughout the past – ancient and present.
Science, and science fiction were always my first “loves” however, and has had a continuous presence on the old blog since its inception. Despite all of my research into parapolitics, I always came back to what I always wanted to do, write my own science fiction.
I don’t claim to be the next Stross or Egan, those authors are already considered Hugo and Nebula Award Hall of Famers for their generation and I could never hope to compete on their level.
In fact, I consider them major influences on my own writings, amongst others like Niven, Bear, Pournelle, Clarke, Stapledon and of course, Asimov.
Famous science fiction author/ufo researcher Daniel Brenton, “discovered” my short story “fiblets” I posted on the old blog and suggested I shop them around to various webzines and regular magazines like Locus, Asimov’s, Analog, Interzone and others. While I don’t quite have the faith in my writing yet to shop them around to legitimate concerns, I told Daniel I will give it a try after the beginning of the New Year and I intend to pursue it, despite my reservations about it.
To Daniel I say, “Thank you for your faith and encouragement.”
You don’t know how much that means to me.
In the meantime however, I’m going full speed ahead with a goal I had set for myself at the beginning of this past year, establishment of a sci-fi/sci-fact webzine to post classic stuff, up to date science, transhuman research, Singularity updates and of course, my own fiction.
Hey, self promotion can’t hurt, right?
In closing, I would like to thank all who have patronized the old blog the past two years, hopefully the updates I instituted will pass muster.
To all old partisan political folk who are no longer patrons, or haven’t been this past year I say, “You will always be welcome and I wish continuous success in your own endeavors.”
Sans personal attacks of course.
To everyone else I say, “Welcome and enjoy the show!”
