My new volume of science-fiction short stories has just been published by Inner Eye Books, and is available on Amazon and Smash Words as both a print and an ebook. This second collection continues the weirdness of Passing Strange. Some of these new stories carry on my concern with contemporary social issues (such as global warming, bullying, abortion, animal rights, gun control, etc.) by extrapolating them into the future or exploring them thru unusual perspectives. Other stories briefly ponder philosophical questions such as the nature of good and evil and the concept of justice. Some are simply for the fun of making our spines tingle a bit. I like to think that each story will be a thought provoker that you will consider the implications of after reading. You’ll find arrogant vampires, woebegone werewolves, scaly aliens, super cyber AI’s, the gremlin on the plane from the Twilight Zone, Elvis, and some sexy future humans. Check out both volumes for a double dollop of thought-provoking weirdness. They are both available at the Michael Baldwin Amazon Author page: ...
