THIS EBOOK IS AN EXCITING TWO BOOK COMBO OFFER!!

  1. The AWARD WINNING: "NASA's 1st MISSION TO MARS - FOR WHAT?!!!" 3RD EDITION
  2. "BEYOND SOYLENT GREEN - 2050"

"NASA's 1st Mission to Mars - For What?!!!" is the 1st PLACE WINNER IN READERS' FAVORITE 2019 NATIONAL COMPETITION/tall tale category. "Beyond Soylent Green - 2050" has received all 5 star ratings from editorial reviewers thus far.
For those readers who enjoyed the prior editions of "NASA's 1st Mission to Mars - For What?!!!," the 3rd edition features more enriched, entertaining content. The twists and turns in the life of Joksey (Stanley Marczek) and his pals never ends.

Penniless, flat broke, sleeping in a cardboard box in a tent city on the South Side of Chicago, this formerly undistinguished man, Stanley Marczek, becomes the first man to walk on Mars. How is it possible? Why would NASA select a civilian, non-career astronaut for the mission? Obviously, living in a confined space for nineteen months for the journey to Mars, is one consideration. Another, his screening test results prove to be exceptional, better than all other candidates. And this is a man of grit and incredible courage. He accepts NASA's offer, seeing it as an opportunity to remake his life, earn a cool three million bucks, and return to Earth a hero. But the story isn't just about Stanley Marczek, (aka Joksey), and the mission to Mars. It is also about his relationships with his loyal friends: Gnidek, a Viet Nam veteran, his dog Chichi, his girlfriend Hannah, and all his friends at tent city. His journey is clouded with almost insurmountable personal and technical challenges, and it is his friends who provide invaluable moral support; they are all in it together.

But what is the catch? There has to be a catch. The catch is that Joksey is a man of strong will who freely expresses his mind. So when the mission is complete, and Stanley Marczek returns to Earth, he publicly questions the wisdom of all manned missions to Mars, to the embarrassment of NASA. And he does not mince words. He tells it like it is, straight out! This novel features realistic science-fiction. Although it is a comedy at heart, it makes a very poignant argument about manned missions to Mars. As a contemporary work, it contains profanity.

"BEYOND SOYLENT GREEN - 2050" predicts the future of the USA in the year 2050. In the age of flying cars and 3D holographic telephones, the Union of the United States will radically change, producing winners, and losers - by the millions, the latter largely the underrepresented and the vulnerable. "Beyond Soylent Green 2050" predicts the outcome in stark terms, the consequence of years of broken government and partisan conflict. Be forewarned: the story is an adventure of surprises and events that may shock readers. Some will argue it is not science-fiction at all, but a realistic depiction of what lies ahead for the USA.
