A New SciFi and Fantasy Community

So here it is, the big reveal! Last week I posted about the Science Fiction and fantasy hub that I was planning. I've worked out how I think this is going to work, the intention is that each contributor will add their own work, link it back to their own site or blog. The idea... Continue Reading →


Humans on Mars – My view on the Logic and Insanity

The concept of human colonising Mars isn't new - it's decades old and has been talked about since space travel started in the 1950's and 60's. Since the Moon landings the science community has viewed that travelling to Mars as being the next logical step in manned space exploration. The science and engineering behind this effort...

The Grind, Seeds, & Patience

A reminder for us all from the lovely Niki.

Simon 🙂

The Richness of a Simple Life

This goes out to all of you who need a gentle reminder that results aren’t always instant. In a world of instant gratification, it can be hard to grind every day and not see the results. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. The process reminds me of plants. When my daughter was in 1st grade, we did a project where we planted seeds inside ziplock bags and watched them grow. Had we planted them outside, we wouldn’t have been able to see all that was going on!

Two Wolves – A Cherokee Teaching

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He... Continue Reading →

Suzie Speaks

Easy steps and life hacks

This was a list of physical, psychological, financial and emotional things that I created a couple of months ago to make life that little bit easier… and it really works. Of course, it’s impossible to do all of these in a day, but I have broken it down into smaller chunks – I’ve found that incorporating things into a daily routine, while occasionally adding in a few extra tasks makes day-to-day life easier and good for the soul.

1. Find a mantra. I have one that I refer to regularly during difficult times: Create a life that you don’t need to take a vacation from. This is what drives me in almost everything that I do.

2. Learn the power of no, and recognise what you do and don’t owe others.

3. Declutter. Be ruthless. Anything that you haven’t read, worn or listened to in a year serves no…

A guest post by Simon Farnell

We had just left the wormhole that brought us here for a brief time we were in normal space. There it was before us. Our destiny, a circle of blackness, darkness like I had never seen before. Even the glowing gasses that shone brightly as it was being annihilated couldn’t light it up. This black hole named Goliath for our mission sucked matter, light, time, energy into its immensity and destroyed it was a sight that I could see but not even start to comprehend. They say when you look into the abyss the abyss looks into you but here there was nothing looking back. The darkness before us was something that I could never imagine in my worst nightmares.

Our mission was to find the other end of eternity, we were going to sit in orbit of this black hole, just outside its…
