A paradoxically silly and wise collection of satirical science fiction prose that rips on popular culture, the science fiction genre in general, literature, history, and society itself and that continues the "Greenmyn Moons in the Wormhole Pocket" series that "Extra! Extra-terrestrial" started. It appeals to young adults and adults alike. Includes 2 new novels (1 never before published) in the aforementioned series, illustrations, winners from the New Year-ical poetry contest, and a little extra.
Ron Baxley has written a science fiction story, “TreasureIsland.com” that was published in the November, 2000 issue of Parsec, a Canadian science fiction magazine, and an article on the former child actor David Henesy that was published in the February/March, 2001 issue of Filmfax: The Magazine of Unusual Film and Television. He has also had poems published in Nostalgia. He has written an essay and columns for The Baum Bugle and a very limited edition Oz novel "The Talking City of Oz" published by the late Swedish sojourner March Laumer’s The Vanitas Press. He has worked as a newspaper reporter for a small daily paper The Aiken Standard, has free-lanced for an independent news weekly, and has been featured on science fiction web-sites.
He has worked for a non-profit children’s literacy organization, has coordinated a middle school after-school program, and taught over a year in an outdoor education program. He graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts in English from the University of South Carolina-Aiken in 1998. He has taught English in private and public school and judged a poetry contest for “Second Wind.” For the past two years, he has been a Developmental Reading and English instructor at the Newberry and Laurens campuses of Piedmont Technical College in S.C.. Most recently, he has had reviews of The Demon Inside and Legend of the Dark Messiah published on POD Reviews and More (podbram.blogspot.com) and has posted reviews on Amazon.com.
