G. Alan Simpson started working as an Engineer-Writer just as the phenomenal growth of the large scale computer industry began. After a career of writing about, building, testing, and delivering some of the world's fastest computers he is now retired and enjoying writing fiction. As an Engineer-Writer he had to get the facts (not always easy to do) and get done on time. As a fiction writer he can make up the facts and get done when he wants (and no one can tell him he is wrong). Fiction is more fun
Aurora Terminalis is the story of two people working at the frontiers of science; she with the Earth's shifting magnetic fields; he with the turbulent emissions from the sun. They meet and the interaction of the two of them is played out against a backdrop of the changing interaction between the deadly Coronal Mass Discharges of our sun and the protective shield of the earth's magnetosphere.
