Short Science Fiction Collection 061 by Various ( - ).

Science fiction is a genre encompassing imaginative works that take place in this world or that of the author’s creation where anything is possible. The only rules are those set forth by the author. The speculative nature of the genre inspires thought and plants seeds that have led to advances in science. The genre can spark an interest in the sciences and is cited as the impetus for the career choice of many scientists. It is a playing field to explore social perspectives, predictions of the future, and engage in adventures unbound into the richness of the human mind. ( A. Gramour)

Hi Matt,
Thank you for starting this off.
The link is helpful. It would be great if they all were on Wikipedia, but alas.
I will PL soon.
Cheers!

Hi Scot,
Please increase the volume by 5 db. I started to proof listen but there are many stumbles. Some spots are 0.17, 0.52, 3.50, 4.13, and so forth. The file needs more editing. Please give it another listen and edit out any stumbles, repeats, etc... along the way. I look forward to hearing the rest of the story.
Cheers,
Amy

I have a longish story I can submit, but would be in four parts. OK?
