Love to read but don't always have time to finish a long story? Here's a series of five minute Sci Fi stories to read anywhere and anytime.

These are bite sized pieces meant to entertain you but they are based on real science and are also meant to make you think about how we use our scientific knowledge to change ourselves and the universe around us. 

Let me know what you like and don't like about science, my stories or the world in general. I love hearing from readers.

Ah, yes. Bureaucracy at its finest. But I'll admit, I'd buy time for my cat, too.

Hey, thanks for the dedication (and the recommendation).  I really enjoyed this story, so it's great to be associated with it.
A perfectly balanced tale. Strong and relevant commentary and a tone that teeters between light and dark without going too far in either side.

This is a clever short story. Nothing like policy to brighten up your day.

Oh. I am sad. But intrigued! But sad.  My old cat is sitting on me right now and I would go through anything to get him some more time.  I have too many feelings now.  Well done!

I'm not sure I would buy time if it was 50$ for a waste of it... Imagine how much it would cost!
