The book includes the novel ‘Alterwall Objectives’ and stories ‘Just Search for the Spirit, ‘Vank Island’, ‘Aftershockwaves 2D-11D’, ‘Down Mill Road’, ‘Trimecraft Crash’ and more. Every human being has an implicit realm of freedom of thought; privacy within his own mind that no other can violate, though many have tried. These stories began the effort to describe some political and empirical analysis that impinges upon human liberty within and without. If war is a continuation of banking through other means, writing is a way of expressing the desire for freedom from war-from-others in many instances. These draft stories were started in 1990 and were the first non-poetic science fiction stories by Gary C. Gibson after the loss of a prior fiction story of Mars ‘The Chamber’ in 1988.
Gary Clifford Gibson was an Alaskan writer during much of the 1990’s, although Alterwall Objectives was written graveyard shift at a Texas State Office Building while George W. Bush was Governor a few blocks away in 1996. Leaving Texas the author completed the novel at more than 30 public libraries around the United States. One of the more recent short stories was written during a particularly tough summer of wildfires in Montana outside camping and riding North to the small border of Havre. Sadly Bob Hope passed on during that long, hot bike trek on noodles and Hostess mini-muffins rescued from a dumpster.
Gary C Gibson’s writings reflect a variety of academic interests in the social sciences, humanities and space exploration synthetically put together along with ordinary direct human experience. With a 99% rank on C.L.E.P. General Social Sciences and History exams and a pure optimism believing that Utopian scenarios are the only acceptable outcome, pragmatism has tempered his writing with the knowledge that humanity screws up a lot, is greedy and philosophically retarded, and perhaps may destroy itself in the drive for power and creature comforts at the expense of the environment.
This book has some yet unapplied scientific applications that could provide better ways of human economic and social development. It is a collection of Gary C. Gibson’s first works essentially still in a draft form, unadulterated by composite book packaging editors.
