Of Man, Sun and Stars

Post by relatedRelated post

I don’t know if it was worth the wait, but here it is – “Of Man, Sun and Stars” is a science fiction short story anthology

The front cover for the e-book "Of Man, Sun, and Stars"

The collection’s front cover

I decided to go ahead and publish this as some sort of teaser, or a sort of test. See what people think. In a departure from Forge of Stones, this is almost purely science fiction.
Available from Amazon and Smashwords.
Since it’s not that large in size, a paperback option is not available.
In the future I might release a second and/or third volume, and then re-release as a paperback.
Hope you buy, rate and enjoy thoroughly!

A collection of five short science fiction stories.The Exchange – a strange gang of buyers prove to be much more than meets the eye

Eden – the daily fight for survival in the first extrasolar human colony, Eden

The Suit – a ground-breaking experiment goes as planned, even though no-one knew what its real purpose until the very end

Yar’s Plume – a man uniquely gifted to communicate with an alien entity across vast distances in real-time, retells his personal tale


5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Quick Read! December 21, 2013
(Stories) Of Man, Sun, and Stars by Vasileios Kalampakas is composed of five different stories of science fiction and fantasy. Each one is a good story and a short read without fillers and a lot of unnecessary writing. The stories get straight to the point and although none really go into any great length of character development, the author provides enough so you understand who and what is going on without any difficulties.

As I said, all the stories are good but my favorite is Eden. It is something I would expect to see on an episode of The Twilight Zone. (Actually they all are! Maybe this author is missing his calling and should be writing for TV.) It was extremely entertaining due to the humor, the mystery of where the teens went, and the edge of your seat thrill to see if they get back in time. Although I admit, I didn’t like the ending. (Not that it was a lousy ending, I just didn’t like the outcome at the end of the story.)

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction and quick reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good natch March 4, 2013
Quite a wide collection of rather good stories. I usually read only SC FI with some history thrown in. This was good enough for me to finish.
