Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a dazzling portrait of the world millions of years from now, as seen through the eyes of the character called “I.” It is the kind of sci-fi that can be characterized as visionary. The author uses different genres to focus on a setting that features humanity at a very advanced stage, grappling with the problem of survival in a failing world. Considering the state of the world and how fast technology advances, this story may not take that long to happen. The author shows a lot of ingenuity in creating new cultures and governments, offering access to other planets, but it is what humankind does in the face of extreme adversity that will capture the hearts of readers.

There is a lot I enjoyed in this book. It’s a little gem featuring all sorts of writing and art. I enjoyed the dialogues and the drama. I enjoyed the beautiful prose, engaging and constant. I enjoyed the idea of preserving human heritage and memories through journaling and other forms of art. There is variety in the writing, but it doesn’t make it boring to read, perhaps because the stories are like dreams interrupted at dawn. The author uses a lot of symbols to paint a reality of a very distant future. Then there are the compelling characters, geniuses, aliens, and robots. Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks asks many philosophical and ethical questions, including the fate of humanity vis-à-vis rapidly growing science. It’s a work that will be adored by fans of sci-fi, short stories, futuristic essays and fantasy.

Third Review for WIS!

November 14, 2016

Here is my 3rd Review for my sci-fi novel Writings In Science by Romuald Dzemo.

Highlights:

Writings in Science: A History of the Future can’t be read as a novel with a linear plot; no, it’s a compendium of beautiful writings depicting the future of humankind and the world human beings inhabit.

Tom Hendricks is a gifted writer, and there is no doubt that his stories, essays and drama are very provocative, especially for readers who love rethinking the future. I will surely be going back to read some of my favorite parts.

WIS, 2nd Review of Sci-Fi Novel

November 10, 2016

Dear Readers,

This is my second review for Writings In Science. I have some favorite lines from the review.

The first thing I can say about this book by Tom Hendricks is wow.

It is hard to know where to start in sharing my thoughts on this book other than just how much I enjoyed it.

Reviewed By Kathryn Bennett.

Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a collection of poems, essays and stories all compiled into a novel, written in two parts. The reader is taken to a world where the earth is no longer viable and is, in fact, dying because of the sun. People are leaving the blue planet in droves and one man with the name of “I” works to gather his favorite science writings to preserve them as a legacy for the future. Follow the history in this book and all of the changes that have happened to the planet before it began its death throes.

The first thing I can say about this book by Tom Hendricks is wow. It may not be the longest science fiction book ever, but it delivers on what it says that it will – a great span of information, a literal treat for your eyes as you read. The breadth of information is wonderful and the format with two parts and a collection of writings is fantastic. You don’t get to meet just one group of characters like in most books, but many groups, all of them rich and fascinating. It is hard to know where to start in sharing my thoughts on this book other than just how much I enjoyed it. Anything theatrical has to go into my favorites category because of my love of the theater. This is not the usual book, but if you like unique reads and science fiction, you will enjoy this book, and who knows, you may learn how to prowl like a house cat while you’re reading.

Musea is known for contests. Here is one open to all.

Love Sci-fi? Want to make money reading it?
How about a contest where you read for prize money and the first person who reads it gets $100 and the first THREE that enter and read it are guaranteed to win?

My sci-fi novel Writings in Science is pretty good. I want to get the word out, but with all the books out there, somebody has to READ it.

Be the first, second, or third, and you will get a check.

Rules

Be the first to read my novel and get $100
Be the second and get $60
Be the third and get $30

Fine Print. The first THREE people that contact me and promise to stream and read the novel will be the only ones entered. The book costs $5.99 up front, but I will add that amount to each of the prizes.

WHEN I GET THREE PEOPLE, I WILL E-MAIL ALL OF YOU WITH THESE WORDS GO! THE CONTEST STARTS NOW.

It is streaming at AMAZON / I-BOOKS, and BARNES & NOBLE

Finer Print. You must have a US mailing address for me to send the money. You must prove in some way that you have purchased and read the novel to get any of the prizes. (I may ask a question or two about some section – nothing too tricky). You must e-mail me when you are finished reading..

It is big with many pages, so if you get a dry section you may skim, IF you don’t overdue the privilege.

I get to decide all ties and such.

What do you think?

WRITINGS IN SCIENCE , a History of the Future, is a sci-fi novel told in stories, essays, poems and play.

The premise is this. The Earth is in it’s final days as the erratic Sun is about to expand. A man named “I”, collects his favorite Writings in Science, and leaves in the last days. This is that collection.
