With the Christmas holidays over and the winter blahs setting in (even here in Arizona), Mr. Valentine’s fancy turns lightly to thoughts of … vacation! But where to go? Maybe you folks can help me out. I can’t decide between these glorious vacation spots:
The travel posters are courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech, for planets that have actually been discovered. As of this writing, PlanetQuest has confirmed 1804 planets outside our solar system, and another 3199 deep space objects that are candidates for planethood. That’s a total of 5003 exo-planets!
Exciting news, certainly. But it makes vacation planning hard.
In the spirit of NASA’s travel posters, I’ve created posters for some of my own science fictional vacation destinations. Here’s the first of them. Check back tomorrow for the next travel poster–and a FREE book offer.
Planet Jones, setting for The Midas Rush
Following the discovery of an ancient village of aliens transformed into gold, Tresky Buffrum leaves his sheep farm on the planet Jones to seek adventure—and immediately finds himself marrying a mysterious beauty who lures him onto the long trek to the Midas Crater. Can Tresky defeat the interplanetary conspirators seeking to destroy the Midas Crater—and shatter his dreams of independence?
Read the opening of The Midas Rush, a science fiction novel.
On which planet would you like to vacation? Drop me a line or a comment and I’ll see if I can arrange passage. For a price, of course. 🙂
