I wrote Date Night on Union Station while taking a break from work on a science fiction epic I've been struggling with for years. The goal was to cheer myself up and to find out if there is still an audience for a science fiction comedy that gets its laughs from dialogue and funny situations rather than from gross-outs and shocks. As many readers have pointed out, the EarthCent series could be rated PG under the old fashioned system, no bloodshed, no graphic sex, no four letter words. And after years of imagining a galaxy for my epic in which multiple human civilizations are at war with each other, it did me a world of good to write about a galaxy where most people are just trying to make a living and find some joy in life.

Audiobook Podcast of Turing Test for sheltering at home

Rather than obsessing over virus news the last month, I've been recording an audiobook of Turing Test, Book #1 of my AI Diaries Trilogy, to give away as a free podcast. I already have sixteen of twenty chapters finished, so I've started posting them, one a day, and should have the final four finished in time.

Traders On The Galactic Tunnel Network by E.M. Foner
"Excellent science fiction

The world building is excellent; the book is well-written with characters I care about. The aliens are awesome and fun. I missed the Farling doctor, although he does make a cameo appearance. Semmi is my new favorite character" Read more of this review »

"kindle unlimited, not sure how I came across this one, but did understand the Turing reference so wanted to read it, bit too slow in places or too much extraneous detail but between a 4 or a 5 it went more toward a 5, even though I actually somewhat " Read more of this review »

Turing Test by E.M. Foner
"Very good story!!

But I don't like writing these stupid reports. This may be one of those good stories that I re-read. Actually, if a book is pretty good I'll do a re-read if I get bored and can't find a new book. Still a little new to kindle plus or " Read more of this review »

“The ambassador was part of the special remedial dating program,” Jeeves explained. “All of the other species on the station sign up with a dating service to find their best match, but some humans can’t coherently describe what they want for breakfast, much less for the rest of their lives.”
E.M. Foner, Wanderers On Union Station

“How many G’s can your body tolerate without permanent damage?” In Joe’s experience, nothing good ever came from responding to this type of question.”
E.M. Foner, Date Night on Union Station

“Aunty Kelly has a very important job, and someday she’ll make a living at it.”
