Synopsis


The artificial intelligences of DataCom are trying to save the planet… by exterminating the human race. Aurelia finds her perfect man: a robot. The space explorer Captain Arcot sacrifices his life for an impossible conquest, the heart of Vril the vampire queen. A shape-shifting mutant ignites the erotic desires of the galactic police officer who's been tracking her down. Alessio fights against corruption in a universe of his own creation. An innocent man is forced to submit to the domination of a ruthless prison director. A king who's forgotten his own past wanders through a magical dimension where he discovers his own history. Two souls separated after one abandons the other meet again in another life. In an exciting virtual reality game, the hunter of the fearsome black widow becomes her prey.

★★★★ Brave new worlds
By ChristophFischerBooks
"Galactic Energies" by Luca Rossi is an interesting and unique blend of science, fantasy and exploration of the human condition. In this inspired selection of short stories Rossi takes us to new dimensions, planets and technological innovations, yet his heroes remain the same imperfect idealists and corrupt beings.
Highly original and intelligently composed the stories are written with a great distinctive voice. From the first amazing story onwards (where two Italian men invent a new paying system software) that voice held my interest with the promise of importance and meaning. The characters are well thought out creations that manage to make the unusual usual. Love, desire, hunger for power and other all too human qualities are perfectly set off against the artificial and virtual, futuristic, supernatural and paranormal.
Erotic and at times explicit these stories move across boundaries and dimensions; this is a feast for science fiction fans but also holds interest for readers in search of fresh or peculiar themes and innovative writing."

★★★★ Steven J Smith
"I loved this collection of short stories, they have a freshness and an honesty about them and are very modern tales with enough twists and turns to delight any reader of this genre. They are ideal for lovers of science fiction, technology and computers. There is an amalgamation of clear scientific knowledge and experience from the author and he produces a crisp, sharp, intriguing look at modern day and the near future. The stories are written with style, characterization is superb and the d
escriptive prose is effortless in its apparent simplicity; a notable talent and skill of the writer. If you enjoy the laws of physics being altered or where technology almost overtakes humanity and our semblance, regulated sense of the normality, I urge you to purchase this book. I am very impressed with not just the sincere style of the writing but also the sheer exuberance and energy of the stories, which literally jump off the page to enthral, amaze and ultimately entertain the readership."
