You remember Satchmo singing that song, What a Wonderful World? I particularly like the second verse. It reads,
“I hear babies cry, I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more then I’ll ever know.
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
But I mean even more knowledge of things we can’t conceive.
Cures for cancer, travel to Mars and beyond, renewable energy running the world, giant desalinization plants providing plenty of water, lifespans averaging beyond 100, and things we can’t even imagine now will be commonplace in one hundred years. The years your great-great grandchildren will be running things.
Two years ago I couldn’t get that idea out of my head. The idea of what my great-great grand-kids would know and how they would be living.
So I wrote a novel about it. I guess you could call it a Science Fiction novel because much of the book does take place in the year 2135. But, it’s also a love story, an adventure story, a family story and a surprising story.
I named the novel, “CKS.” The letters stand for Compu-Kinetic Syndrome.
You’ll have to buy the book to know what that means. I guarantee it will keep you turning pages.
CKS will be available in a few weeks.
