"Aliens! Yes, I said aliens.  They're here, right now, among us!  You, sir!  Will you listen to me?  Are you ready for the end of the world?  No?  Just gonna walk away, eh?  That's all right, you will believe soon enough.  How about you, madam?  Yes, you with the little girl.  Do you love  her?  Of course you do.  But time is growing short.  This is your final warning.  Hug her.  Tell her you love her, before she dies.  No, don't run away.  I'm sorry, but you have nothing to fear from me.

ORIGINAL FICTION: "The Last Gun Turret" by David Teach

Ginrummy's picture

A clump of tumbled stones lay at the center of a small valley, far out in the arid desert; the remains of an ancient outpost, abandoned since the time of the last men. It was quiet and still, and it seemed all rather peaceful.

And so it was, while the gun turret watched.

Republibot 3.0 (aka Kevin Long) is now on Smashwords

Ginrummy's picture

Up until now all of the books by R3 have only been available on Amazon/Kindle. There are, however, several other E-reader formats for virtual books and he's basically been neglecting them up until now due to his massive technical ineptitude. (<-R3 wrote that) That's done, though. As of this morning, both his anthologies were posted on Smashwords! We've even dropped the price a buck in celebration! Smashwords publishes formats for iPod/iPhone, B&N Nook, Sony reader, and most any device using the Android O/S.

EDIT: THE NEW BOOK "It's Not Rocket Science" IS NOW ONLINE ALSO. See inside for links and more details.

I've had this one on my virtual book pile for about a year now since I read a glowing review of it upon it's release but only now got around to it a couple days ago. I wish I hadn't waited so long; it is just a wonderful book for those of us in the target audience. Who is that? Well, let me run down the story setup and it will become apparent.

BOOK REVIEW: "I Am Legend" (1954 Novella) By Richard Matheson

Ginrummy's picture

Three movies have been made (at least) directly inspired by Richard Matheson's classic novella (longer than a short story, shorter than a novel) "I Am Legend". Nobody really has gotten it "right" in the sense of not adding or subtracting significantly from the original. I'll touch on the story elements first then do a bit on the movies and how they changed things.
