Dark Matter
Sheree R. Thomas (Editor)
anthology - 2000

Anthology of African-American speculative fiction with contributions spanning from the late 19th century to the present.

"This anthology's critical and historical importance is indisputable. But that's not why it will prove to be the best anthology of 2000 in both the speculative and the literary fiction fields. It's because the stories are great: entertaining, imaginative, insightful, sharply characterized, and beautifully written." - Amazon

The Rocket Men
Daniel Cline, Steven Ziplow
Audio tapes
"Set in the late 40's, this entertaining, full-cast science fiction melodrama give us Howard Hughes throwing his hat into the ring of the Cold War space race. The producer has carefully and effectively orchestrated production values to augment lackluster performances. The script boasts some high adventure and flashes of humor, as well as the usual sci-fi conceits." - AudioFile
