More About the Author

Born and raised in the wilds of suburban Long Island, in the shadow of New York City, Larry Allen migrated to Massachusetts in the Great Exodus of 2010. When not writing speculative fiction, he designs embedded computer systems, bicycles, flies, swims the Polar Bear Plunge, and occasionally competes in IDPA matches. He and his bride live at an airport on Cape Cod.

"Speculative Fiction at its worst is pessimistic aliens on dying words (usually due to an environmental catastrophe), never tiring of lamenting their surroundings, yet never quite accomplishing anything either. At its best, it provides a venue to explore what being human is really all about: our strengths, our weaknesses, but most of all our potential. It can also be an opportunity to learn; sometimes about technology, but just as often about people, and what makes them special.

I'm a big fan of heroes. Not the ones with capes and superpowers, but ordinary guys (and gals) in extraordinary situations who choose to do the right thing rather than the easy thing. I'm inspired by authors like Ernest Gann, Robert Heinlein, Neville Shute, Richard Bach, and numerous others. I take pride in the fact that the guy behind the counter at the library waits in anticipation to see what I've put on reserve this week." - Larry Allen

"Not everything in life has a purpose. But everything has a lesson."

A very enjoyable short story about a high school student who befriends an elderly retired astronaut and finds a way to go into space and a way to pay for college. Read this story to find out how.
