The Day The Sun Changed Colors
"Charming and colorful and wildly imaginative, and very cool--the kind of thing only a mad, iconoclastic genius could have conceived and birthed. Bravo..."
"I laughed so hard, I had tears streaming down my face. . .The ending was nothing like I thought it would be. . . I found it interesting and shaking my head thinking that it figures. . . I had a hard time figuring it all out in the beginning, but all of a sudden the story fell in place for me and I was really enjoying it. This is for the true science fiction lover. Completely different from any other I have come across of. Good story line, good writing (after I figured it all out), good humor and down right unusual."
The year is 4377. The world is a utopia. Robots and superadvanced technology do all the work, and everyone is rich and famous. There are no wars or diseases. Everything is perfect until one day when the Sun, for some reason, starts to glow red, which is quite the conversation starter. Over time this phenomenon intensifies and changes hues, bathing the world in ever changing colors. People realize these colors are affecting their minds. Red causes excitation; green sedation; and blue, violence.
