Can we colonise Mars? Can we make robots more like humans? Can we travel backwards and forwards in time?
"A Science Fantasia" consists of three short science fiction novels. The first one, "A Tale Of Two Planets", deals with the possibility of transforming the planet Mars into a habitable world. Its essential theme examines whether or not mankind can ever be free of contentious politics. The basic question is - "can a solution to the social and economic problems which humanity faces be tackled through routes which are non-political in their nature?"
"Only Half-Believe What You See" examines the likelihood of constructing more human-like robots. It is centred around a newly married scientist whose relationship with his spouse is often put at risk as a result of the demands placed upon him in his scientific career.
"Christmas At CERN" explores the relationship between science and religion. Are these two disciplines destined to be forever in conflict or can sufficient common ground be establsihed to reconcile their apparent differences?
