philexpON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME… 10 Time Travelers…

9 Aliens, 8 conspiracies, 7 super heroes, 6 corrupt files, 5 Demon Spawns! 4 lost souls, 3 werewolves, 2 vampires, and zombies in a story.

The idea of time travel has fascinated me since as far back as I can remember.  Watching Superman reverse the direction of the Earth in a silly interpretation of going back in time; Marty McFly visiting the past and future in a Delorean; H.G. Wells classic The Time Machine; and Sam leaping from person to person in Quantum leap are just some of the things that hooked me in my youth.

Writing A COURSE FOR HUMANITY and its spinoff THE LOST HOUR was a lot of fun for me, but it took a long time to get right.  Time travel logic is difficult to maintain, but is manageable with some thought and research.  Pictured here is the U.S.S. Eldrige.  It is said that the government managed to send it back in time ten seconds on October 28th 1943.  This was dubbed the “Philadelphia Experiment,” although no one actually knows if the program ever even existed.  What do you think?  There are plenty of photos and historical things that could point to time travel being possible.  Do you think it’s a possibility and if so where would you go and when?

There’s no doubt that we have absolutely no knowledge of what lies out there in the vastness of space.  The unknown is great territory for some fantastic science fiction stories and more.  How much of what we theorize could be real?  When I wrote my novel DEVOURED UNIVERSE and its spinoff COSMIC ORBITS, I aimed to answer just that.  Recently a cigar shaped object came into our solar system from interstellar space and then headed back out.  Scientists are baffled as to what it might be.  The picture attached is a scientific artist’s rendition of what it looks like up close.  What do you think is out there?  Are we alone?  Chime in with your thoughts.

ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME… 8 conspiracies…

Conspiracy theories have been around for ages, but with the internet at our fingertips and technology booming it’s becoming harder to dispute a lot of them.  In fact a lot of them even become much less far fetched sounding once you start looking at the different points of view and available facts.  For my novel PLANET ATE and its spinoff ALIEN ENCOUNTERS I stuck mostly with conspiracies regarding extra terrestrials.  Depicted here are some ancient glyphs that appear to have flying craft in them.  It’s just one of the many pieces of “evidence” toward some of these claims.  What is your favorite or most fascinating conspiracy theory?

ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 7 Super Heroes…

I’ve always been a fan of comic books.  They were a big part of my youth growing up and now I get to see them on the big and small screens.  When I wrote GENETIC MORSELS and its spinoff EVOLVED MUTATIONS, I wanted to portray abilities in a more realistic manner.  I wanted a comic book like novel that wouldn’t be so… well comic booky.  It had to be something any reader can enjoy because it would relate to the real world and how physics actually work.  Aside from the science behind it I also looked to real life examples of extraordinary abilities.  Take Stephen Wiltshire depicted here.  He can fly over a city in a helicopter one time and then draw every single detail he saw accurately.  He’s got the world’s most fascinating photographic memory.  If you had a super ability what would you want it to be?

Artificial Intelligence and computers have come a long way.  Just look at Sophia on the right.  She’s an AI robot that can communicate as if she were human.  You need to look up the videos if you haven’t yet.  Is technology our next step in evolution?  Do you think we’ve gone too far or should we push farther?  What are your thoughts?  My novel TECHNO FEAST and its spinoff VIRAL UPGRADES addresses some of these things.

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME, 3 WEREWOLVES…

What If? (Dan Pipito)

2 vampires, and zombies in a story.

One of the hardest novels I had to write was BONES AT BREAKFAST.  There’s only so much lore to lycans that leave little ground for creative freedom and uniqueness.  Thankfully, I managed to pull it off once I got past the little obstacles.  The novel and its spinoff IN CASE OF WEREWOLF are perfect gifts for the holidays and beyond.  The picture at the left was done by Dan Pipito for the graphic novel version of the spinoff.

Cain and Lilith are just the beginning of the vampire lineage in BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING.  This novel and its spinoff LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE are the perfect gift for any fan of the lore and historical events.  Artwork shown at the right was done by Dan Pipito for the graphic novel version of the spinoff.

Just Another Freak (art by Dan Pipito)

And a perfect novel with plenty of zombie madness is FLESH AND LEFTOVERS.  Shown is artwork that my brother Dan Pipito did for the graphic novel spinoff ZOMBIE INCIDENTS a few years back.

I’m just nostalgic I guess and love the old Christmas classic tunes.  So, in going with that theme I’ve come up with my own 12 Days of Christmas.  Of course this can be applied to any holiday of the season, but works with the song of the same name.

Day 26 – A Little Boy In The Land of The Sleepless Knights

knights

Day 26 of #scrypthalloween looks at my children’s book A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS. @dpipito returns with more awesome artwork for a tale I wrote for my son. My goal was to write a bedtime story that made children realize that they can go on many adventures in their dreams.

It’s available in print and digital at Lulu.com, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble…

official description: When a young boy refuses to sleep he finds himself trapped in the Land of Sleepless Knights. This is where all children go when they don’t get enough rest. Can he figure out how to escape in time or will he turn into one of the Knights and be consumed by the Cranky King?


Day 24 – No, It’s Not. Yes, It Is: Arguments

argue

Day 24 of #scrypthalloween goes in a different direction with my nonfiction book NO, IT’S NOT. YES, IT IS: ARGUMENTS. For the cover, I took two opposite pics of my face and merged them into what you see here. It was my goal to present a funny take on arguing with some unbiased facts from each side, and some stories from my own life.

I will have to update it with a newer version soon, but in its original glory it’s available in print and digital at Lulu.com and Amazon…

official description: Do you know that argument you have that never goes away? Is there someone you know who always seems to fight with others? When you try to debate something, do you lack enough facts? If you answered, “yes,” to any of these questions, then this book is for you. Take an adult journey with author, Rick Pipito, through some very common disputes to see both sides of the story. People argue over things because they are opinionated. This happens often when a person can’t see the opposite point of view. In an unbiased attempt to extinguish some fiery tempers, this book presents each chapter with a few personal, and humorous experiences. Facts are evenly displayed for both sides, in order to truly define where one stands. Movies, politics, religion, science, etiquette, sports and more, may be some things you see a little differently or more concretely by the end of this book.
