DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Sometimes the smallest things can have the biggest impacts. Dystopian Spacetime presents 5 hand-selected tales of the fantastic. Take a trip to the 1980s and see how humanity’s place in the universe was really determined in ‘Earth Year 1982.’ Did humanity doom itself without even knowing it long before you were born? ‘In Space, All Bets Are Off’ will give you some insight. Ever wondered what you’d really do if you could kill Hitler? The mysterious stranger presents this in ‘Incident at Phil’s Arcade.’ What if we could change some small detail about the past with a new, powerful device? And what if the wrong person possessed it? ‘Winds of Change’ will make you think before you place your next football bet. Finally, how do we persevere in a world now alien to us? ‘The Final 7th Inning Stretch’ shows us hope through the eyes of a young boy on the verge of manhood in a dystopian world. Special Note: There are no viruses, contagions, or plagues in any of these 5 stories. Humanity has had enough of that in the real world for the time being. (About 33k words).
