First Part of my First Story is Posted

The first part of my first story on SOL, What the Future May Bring, has now been posted. The story is fairly long, running about fifty chapters altogether, is completely written, and will be posted over the next several weeks. Having been disappointed and frustrated by incomplete and inactive stories that I had really gotten into, I will not be posting any stories unless they are complete.

I began writing What the Future May Bring in late 1983 and didn't finish the first draft until 1994. I had put it aside for a while, then wasn't able to transfer it from one of my old computers to a newer one a few years ago. A couple of weeks ago, I was going through some old 3.5 inch diskettes and ran across it, so I went through the whole story and edited it for posting here.

I wanted this story to be one which would make people think, and to try to come up with some possible solutions to address some of the long term problems facing the US. There were a number of issues I wanted to address in the story, and it took a great deal of time, energy and thinking to come up with possible, workable solutions to the problems.

I am hopeful that I will be able to keep your interest and attention throughout the whole story. I also welcome any feedback you may have.
