E W Farnsworth's DarkFire at the Edge of Time brings together twenty-five visionary science fiction stories focusing on events leading up to and following the launch of the Spaceship Arcturus, destined to an epic voyage through space to the edge of the universe and back again. Avatars and AIs mature by programming themselves and acquiring human characteristics as they discover romance, sex, joy and pain. While alluding to works by Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Norbert Wiener, H P Lovecraft and Alan Turing, Farnsworth's brainy stories break new ground. Amongst the twenty-five stories, "The Joys of Rayovision" explores early experimentation in teleportation; "Shell Game" features using DNA for encoding messages in outer space; and numerous other stories postulate the practicality of a neutrino communicator. The reader can read sequentially or delve into this collection in any direction. The variety of perspectives caters for every mood, inclination and intellectual capacity.

Since the appearance of E. W. Farnsworth's 'DarkFire at the Edge of Time' in early 2016, the importance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has increased exponentially. From AI to robotics, 2016 was long prophesied as the year when the machines would start "taking over,"" Now it is happening, according to Vivek Wadhwa of Crunch Network. Yet AIs and robots have come as our friends and helpmeets to improve our lives. They will become, as Lincoln wrote, the "better angels of our nature." From the 'Sarah Tetralogy' through the journey of Spaceship Arcturus conveying brilliant humans, artificial intelligences and avatars beyond the end of the universe, to 'Renaissance', which recounts the spaceship's successful return to instantiate a new Eden which replaces the black crisp that humans have made of Earth, these stories continue in the vein of DarkFire and his friend, the inimitable Loc Phuket. Science Fiction to some, perhaps, yet, day by day, increasingly part of our current events.
