This is a big day for me. My first book, Archaeology In Fiction, is now available via Amazon in both paperback and Kindle versions. I have taken my popular Archaeology in Fiction discussion which I have presented at various sci-fi and fantasy conventions and transformed it into an in depth discussion of Archaeology as it is depicted in fiction.
What is the truth? In this book we will explore:
- The fictions surrounding archaeology
- Why we love and perpetuate those fictions
- What the truth behind the fiction really is
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.
Archaeology In Fiction is available here.
Back when we began our investigation into the flying car, Terrafugia, makers of the Transition, were more focused on making a street legal airplane than a flying car. That is no longer true. Enter the Terrafugia TF-X. Terrafugia will focus the TF-X™ program with clear goals that enhance the safety, simplicity, and convenience of personal transportation. Check out this simulation.
Skycar® and Neuera™ aircraft have announced that it has received a signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreeing to create a US-based Joint Venture (JV) with Athena Technologies Inc. of Harbor City, California. The goal of the newly formed JV is to establish co-production for its aircraft in the US and the People’s Republic of China.
Under the provisions of the memorandum, MI will team with this US company-led JV to jointly produce numerous models of its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. The JV will initially invest $80 million (USD) of a planned $480 million investment with the objective of producing a variety of VTOL aircraft by 2014. Production will include the Skycar® 200 LS, Skycar® 400, Skycar® 600 and Neuera™ aircraft.
