The NULL Solution = Episode 146

…The world-wide public cannot get enough; so intriguing, so foreign to those with the least bit of an astronomical leaning…

Astronomy Picture of the Day – NASA

“If I can interrupt, my favorite moment was when we drove Solution into a river. What a kick to see how she handles underwater!”

It certainly was a kick, just not quite for the reasons he described. He leaves out the juicy parts, like the actual force field enforced by a riddle-master; a two-way closed door that is stuck shut. AND that, in everyone’s qualified opinion, he is back with his family and Rick is back tending to his nuts, is a flat-out miracle.

“Let’s take a look at the pictures your drone took, after you men were safely inside the drone and on your way back to Earth. I hear you named it the Martian Mule.

While she speaks, the director in the control room is showing file footage. That “structure” is visible in the distance, as will be the ash plume that rises just as high, without strong prevailing winds to spread it out.

“We were happy to have Mars in our rearview mirror,”… that and an alien behemoth {Collapsar Axis}. No footage of that though. This is a time for celebration not worry.

Pistachio Growers Association Incorporated. PGAI

“Lt. Commander Stanley, Prez Roy tells me you have officially retired?”  People want details and Randi Gilbert II delivers.

“Yes, I bought a little pistachio grove in California. A few cattle, some chickens and a small herd of quarter horses too.”

“Sounds like that will keep you busy.” She turns, “What about your plans Gus McKinney… with your time off, I mean?”

“Well, my daughter Marscie is growing like a weed. I think I’ll watch her develop, teach her about space stuff, maybe do a little sky watching on the side.”

“Aren’t you tired of looking at stars?”

“There’s more out there than stars and planets Randi …”

Bzztt… Fresh pictures of the Green {formerly red} Planet abruptly pop onto the broadcast. The public cannot get enough; so intriguing, so foreign to those with the least bit of an astronomical leaning. It seems someone in the studio control room was afraid that Gus may be referring to approaching unmentionable alien fortress.

RG II thanks her all-star guests and signs off from this exciting and informative new episode of Good Morning Mission Control.

…If you are reading this post and you are one of the hundreds who have also been reading THE RETURN TRIP, I want to personally thank you for the privilege of sharing my very 1st book…  originally written in 1986…

And truth be told, I had to do mucho updating to make the book currently relevant. As I edited and posted and posted and edited, it was an absolute GAS adding in graphics, music and others’ photography and art into each & every Episode.

If you would bother to take the time and click thru the Episode Catalog – from 1 to The End – what a transformation from 100,000 words into a picture-book-potpourri-experience.

When I envisioned posting one of my books in this fashion (original & my way), I thought it would be a convenient way for readers to take in approx. 400 words/day and be entertained along the way… 10 minutes/day and off you go with life. Finding & keeping a repeatable format from episode to episode was important to me… every day it has that consistent, comfortable comportment.

It is also important that I properly credit each artist or photographer if I use their works to enhance the theme of the day’s post. So, if you click the link to the painting or photo, it may take you to THEIR or another website.

Like many of my “original” creations, it probably will not catch on. I am either to far ahead of my time OR better off doing this 30 years ago … or whenever the Internet hit town.

So as THE RETURN TRIP is in the can, so-to-speak, I proceed undaunted by dubious success. The NULL Solution will begin tomorrow 9/20/2017, virtually where the last book ended, as the saga of the Space Family McKinney soldiers on.

I hope that Sampson, Celeste & Co. have the depth of character necessary to make you want to care ABOUT them, as well as what happens TO them. They have been a part of my life for 30+ years and I am writing a 3rd book in the series (Chariot of Chaos) as I am penning this love letter to all of you.

About the Author  3rd person

Gwen was born in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin in an unnamed year. She grew up with Mom, Dad and younger sister and lived there until going off to university.

At Oconomowoc High School, she would fall in love… with the written word and after graduating, Miss Hoff immediately began her writing career; Science Fiction being the unlikely genre of choice. Her studies in English and Meteorology at UW-Milwaukee are mere window dressing to the greater passion of fashioning phrases; original ways to arrange the English language.

A Trekkie (Star Trek NBC Television 1967-1969) to the core, Gwen would go on to complete three Sci Fi novels. In a pre-computer world, all but the third has survived the passage of time (THE RETURN TRIP 2030 – 2051) currently posted at www.writingisfun-damental.com. The newest novel concerning THE SPACE FAMILY MCKINNEY is The Null Solution (2051-    ).

She has 3 wonderful sons and a solid group of quality friends. The satisfaction of family and faith in the Living God are what drives this writer of both books and just about any other form; if it requires the right words, she can do it.

To this very day, Gwendolyn still loves Science Fiction, cries at  every new big-screen  STAR TREK movie and looks at the stars, with a fond and unique eye to the heavens.

But as the years wear on, Historical Fiction has become the comfortable literary vehicle of choice. Personal website: www.gwendolynhoff.com .

That brings us to the year 1994. In that year, she would meet the Granddaughter of the subject doctor of THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A BLACK SOUTHERN DOCTOR  1896 – 1959 (Alpha Omega M.D.). She entered into a partnership for the purpose of bringing the story of Alpha Omega Campbell to light. With informational trips to book’s setting of Tallahassee FL and a treasure trove of realized history, adding Washington DC to her bag of tricks, the epic story of a medical groundbreaker took form.

During the intervening 12+ years, the life & times of a fine southern physician and gentleman would be lovingly crafted into words; some fact, some fiction. The final result is a unique writing style and an unequaled perspective on history; an interesting blend of relevant characters and what was really happening around them, at that particular time.

And now it is on to a series of books concerning Constance Caraway P.I., a skilled private investigator from Tallahassee Florida. CONSTANCE CARAWAY & ASSOCIATES will transport the reader to a confoundingly wonderful combination of cases and places. The 1st installment is titled Constance Caraway ~ Forever Mastadon (1951 Chicago) and can be read in its entirety at Writing is Fun-damental.com.
