The Rescue of Lucy Fer

Andrew Vecsey

A single father and his son risk life and death to rescue the lady of their life out of a prison called Hell.

Joe and his son Chris are in heaven. They have everything they want, except Joe lost his wife a Chris lost his mother. She is locked up in prison for life. Realizing that the only way to get her back is to break her out, they decide to try. But it`s no ordinary jail and it`s not your ordinary life sentence. She is locked up in Hell for eternity.

This short book is a satirical fantasy about technology and religion and stands them face to face.


A Short History of a Long Futu....

Andrew Vecsey

Account of history and the future. Topics on physics, chemistry, nutrition, biology are treated in a simplified form using analogies and easy-to-understand language.

Humans destroy nature and re-invent it. They replace their bodies by robots and achieve immortality by storing their brains in a centralized safe haven called Heaven Inc.and by controlling their replaceable robot bodies remotely. They find a new world and use a collection of best genes from animals and plants to create a new life form called new-man. They teach new-man all they know, and in turn new man leads them to god.

This book is written to guide new-man much like our bible was written to guide us. Written in a poetic and simplified style full with analogies, it outlines the history of the universe and of mankind and of the physical and social sciences and philosophy. It offers rational explanations of physical laws of gravity, inertia and light as well as a rational answer to the circular question of how a creator god came to be without being created.

Lives of famous people real and imaginary like the one who tamed fire, the builder of the pyramids, Buddha, Attila, Khan, Gutenberg, Luther, Galileo, Adam Smith, Marx, Hitler, and the developers of new technologies in our future as well as the creator of new-man are described.

This book is obviously not for you. The book's main aim is not to teach but to make you think, much like a fantasy novel. And it includes many distorted simplifications. The two points of view in this book are those of the scientists in the far future who (I'm sorry to break it to you) do end up... view book

Thanks for reading my book. To answer your questions, this is a science-fiction in a format of a guide book much like the bible. It attempts to explain things with simplifications, analogies, and common sense concepts. With this in mind, the universe in this book is finite. The actual size is not... view book
