Science Fiction allows an author to opine on all aspects of the society we live in, from the unfairness of racial, gender, or age discrimination, to the dishonesty of political leaders, to the questions of religion and a spirit that never dies.

It also allows us to explore how future technology might find answers for all of these questions.

Such are the thoughts and worlds of William Lee Gordon.

“The Earthers I respect don’t ‘go along’ just to ‘get along.’ The bravery to stand alone, to defend the unpopular, to insist on what your heart tells you is right regardless of personal repercussions; that is what I am most proud of in my fellow Earthers – and I hope we never lose it.”
William Lee Gordon, Destiny

“After all, why would I need a government to build a road if I could print a machine that would do it for me? Why would I pay taxes for protection if I could print my own gun (or fortress); and why would anyone want what I have if they could print their own? What was really left for the controllers to offer?”
William Lee Gordon, Emergence

“the Founding Fathers of the United States were generally among the opinion that government was inherently evil and that men couldn’t be free unless they were protected from it. In other words, they felt that government, by the nature of man, would always be a growing, power-hungry monstrosity that would constantly need pruning. These same Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize our modern world; where we teach our school children that government is our friend. I didn’t know if she was saying these things for my benefit or those that would be listening in but I nodded for her to continue.”
William Lee Gordon, Emergence
