Science Fiction By Scientists
This anthology contains fourteen intriguing stories by active research scientists and other writers trained in science.
Science is at the heart of real science fiction, which is more than just westerns with ray guns or fantasy with spaceships. The people who do science and love science best are scientists. Scientists like Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Fred Hoyle wrote some of the legendary tales of golden age science fiction.
Today there is a new generation of scientists writing science fiction informed with the expertise of their fields, from astrophysics to computer science, biochemistry to rocket science, quantum physics to genetics, speculating about what is possible in our universe. Here lies the sense of wonder only science can deliver. All the stories in this volume are supplemented by afterwords commenting on the science underlying each story.

Fear in the French Quarter
Book 6 of the Displaced Detective series
Fear in the French Quarter, book 6 of Stephanie Osborn’s acclaimedDisplaced Detective mystery/adventure/science fiction series, revolves around a jaunt by no less than Sherlock Holmes himself — brought to the modern day from an alternate universe’s Victorian era by his continuum parallel, who is now his wife, Dr. Skye Chadwick-Holmes — to famed New Orleans for both business and pleasure. There, the detective couple investigates ghostly apparitions, strange disappearances, mystic phenomena, and challenge threats to the very universe they call home.
It was supposed to be a working holiday for Skye and Sherlock, along with their friend, the modern day version of one Doctor John H. Watson — a bit of federal training that also gave the team the perfect chance to visit and explore that most exotic of American cities, New Orleans. That was the plan, and a good one. It was just too bad that the universe had other ideas.
New Orleans — possibly the most foreign of all American cities, and certainly the most haunted — now becomes the setting for the latest adventures of Skye and Sherlock Holmes, along with the modern day surrogate of Holmes’ dearest friend, Doctor John Watson, even as the ghosts of the French Quarter become exponentially more active. When the couple uncovers an imminently catastrophic cause, whose epicenter lies squarely in the middle of Le Vieux Carré — the French Quarter — they must race against time to stop it before the whole thing breaks wide open — and more than one universe is destroyed.
The Displaced Detective Series by Stephanie Osborn is a science fiction mystery series in which hyper-spatial physicist Dr. Skye Chadwick discovers alternate realities which are often populated by those we consider only literary characters. In continuum 114, a certain Victorian detective (who, in fact, exists in several continua) was to have died along with his arch-nemesis at the Reichenbach Falls. Knee-jerking, Skye intervenes, rescuing her hero Sherlock Holmes, who inadvertently flies through the wormhole connecting his universe with ours. Unable to send Holmes back without causing devastating continuum collapse, he must stay in our world and adapt to the 21st century. Hi-jinks ensue, and the series has been aptly described as “Sherlock Holmes meets the X-Files,” as he and Chadwick take on modern spy rings, UFOs, mass spontaneous combustion, and more.
