Product Information
Specification

As the title suggests the stories in this compilation deals with events when science hits back. Disasters through complacency, nuclear war through losing control of events, or just an experiment going wrong all give science or rather nature a chance to show just how far we have to go. 'Fracture Point' deals with the consequences of our dependence on electricity in general and automated systems in particular. It dominates the book at 50,000 words especially since 'Leave 'Em Laughing' allows you to put the book down with a smile on your face at just 215 words. 'The Rising Moon Disaster', 'Time Done' and 'Gods and Demons' are more conventional short stories. Rising Moon is a space ship on its maiden flight to the moon, while in 'Time Done' a careless time traveller risks unravelling his future world. Gods and Demons deals with the consequences as events impinge on a society scarcely able to comprehend the outside world. The cause of a war is dealt with in, what else, 'World War III' but it is another ultra short story though I did cheat. As you read it, imagine that you are hearing it on the radio. The styles vary, I hope the tales interest so enjoy a mixed bag of tales about where science can lead us.
