I am a retired professor of Computer Science and Mathematics. I needed some place to put my daydreams, so I started writing science fiction. Those dreams began with an apocalyptic, utopian, and near-future story of an unsatisfied God who returns to humanity by choosing a mathematician as his next prophet. The dreams followed the prophet's Family of Man off the surface of the Earth, into the solar system, then into the galaxy, the multiverse, and eventually, beyond physical reality. The journey has taken me into the world of Independent Publishing and to places I could not imagine.

If you enjoy contemplating realilty and are not afraid of mathematics, physics, philosophy, and religion, I invite you to enter my worlds.
