High SciFi. John T. Cullen writing as John Argo. I've written across the spectrum of SFFH, but my two major series are SF. I chose the term High SciFi as a glancing riff on High Fantasy. My SFFH can generally be divided into two series, each with over half a dozen novels plus a number of short stories. One is DarkSF (not scary but artful, glossy, and rich with nuance and flavor). The other is Empire of Time.
DarkSF: The Dark Chocolate of Science Fiction. John T. Cullen writing as John Argo. The term DarkSF refers to literary quality, finely crafted fiction that is rich in art and nuance. DarkSF does not rely onnor necessarily exclude someHorror elements. Fans of gore, grue, and slasherfic please look elsewhere. For cinematic examples of high art, think of Blade Runner or Dark City. More examples soon. For a few quick book examples, think of Cordwainer Smith, Ray Bradbury, or Jorge Luis Borges. Mine are generally stand-alones that form a series by their continuity in texture, art, and nuance. Doom Spore San Diego is what I call Science-Horror (as opposed to Fantasy Horror), and is an homage to the 1955 SF novel (1956 classic film) about the Body Snatchers. My SF novel
Empire of Time. John T. Cullen writing as John Argo. Empire of Time (over a half dozen novels so far) is a mysterious saga with time agents and more, sprawling across light years of space and eons of time. A special transit system in the Motherverse, outside contained space and time and called the Temporale, allows time agents to operate across multiple universes. Titles include Mars the Divine and America 2018: Orwell in Orbit (soon).
