“What I found in the form is that shorter works inspire far more immersion than the time it takes to read them. The work is but a seed. Planted, the central element of the speculative fiction is left to grow. The impact of a great short story happens days and often years later. Rather than have the author hand every answer on a silver platter, she buries it and allows your mind and your life experiences to handle the rest.   There”
Samuel Peralta, The Future Chronicles: Special Edition

“The hinges screech as it opens, jolting Anna and I apart.”
Samuel Peralta, The Future Chronicles: Special Edition

“I took on an adaptation of a book called Gossamer. The author played with the hero quest and growing up stuff in some really intriguing ways.”
Samuel Peralta, The Time Travel Chronicles
