Top Ten Sci Fi Things I Hope Are Invented:
1. Holo-watches, like they had on the old TV show Earth: Final Conflict.
2. Memory downloads, like they had on Strange Days.
3. Transporter from Star Trek!
4. Tech-enhanced DNA so humans could be better, like in Blood Crown.
5. Technology to enhance innate psychic ability, like in the series Lensmen by "Doc" Smith.
6. Make-up boxes like in Fifth Element.
7. Instant dinner like in Fifth Element.
8. The Tardis. Duh. (from Doctor Who, just in case!)
9. Avatars like from the movie Surrogates or Avatar.
10. Flying cars. Where in the world are the flying cars? I was promised flying cars, people!
About BLOOD CROWN: Serantha is the daughter of the Emperor of the West, who rules over the remnant of humanity who escaped a dying Earth and took to the stars a thousand years ago. With no habitable planets found during their exile, the android Servants who were supposed to care for them rose up, took the name of Mind, and murdered her father. Now the androids amuse themselves by forcing humans like her into mindless drudgery. But flashes of memory hint that Sera is no ordinary human.
On the other side of the galaxy, Nicolai, Son of the East, has abandoned his crown and joined the rebel forces in the war against the Mind. Humans have no real chance... unless the enhanced DNA developed by the Blood Crown scientists can unlock mankind's potential. When Nic and Sera are united, they discover their true potential--and together, humanity just might have a chance. But there's a legion of androids and nine years of mistrust between East and West... and coming together will require more than they ever expected.
