Synopsis/Details: 

Welcome to the story of the origin and fate of Mankind!

Ever wonder why our cars run on noxious gas instead of clean electricity? Or who or what Bigfoot really is? What about those Elvis sightings? And especially: Why did we descend from Homo Sapiens instead of Neanderthals?

Well, those might be too many to go over in this little story, but it could be because of a bunch of time travellers who come and go to make sure that Humanity makes all the decisions it must, for better or worse, in order that we turn out exactly as we have.

And I haven't even gotten to the romance yet!

Actually, love is behind everything that goes right and wrong in this story, so if you'd like to view the script/synopsis for this brain-teasing, Pythonesque adventure, which may be enjoyed especially by fans of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", I look forward to sending the PDF(s) to you.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008: A "fan fiction" sequel to my favorite film that served as a release of my pent-up wishes and hopes for what might have "happened next". This sudden writing outburst was a surprise, yet it was predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between then and now, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology for my early fan fiction, and all of my original stories since, is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully... Go to bio
