Have you ever wondered: What about poor, old Jacob Marley?

Then, this story is for you….

Dearest Reader:

While this story remains for anyone who may ever have wondered, “What about poor, old Jacob Marley?”, this “other” ending is for anyone who, like me, recognizes the parallels between Dickens’ masterpiece and Sci-Fi classics, where time travel and alternate universes are tapped and outcomes are explored, which cannot help but to illuminate possible, additional aspects to even such as the rest of this story; for, thanks to the infinite realms that are our universe and the creativity we possess, everything remains possible.

A Christmas Carol is a ghost story and a Christmas story, but it could also be considered Science Fiction’s best-loved ancestor.

As free speech advocate and champion of freedom of creative expression, I have chosen to exercise my right to let Art, in this case a deeply personal literary project of mine, to speak for my beliefs as citizen and parent, and to share as creative contributor my intention, which is to help foster conversations that can ultimately unite and carry us all forward – individually and together.

I like to say: The Arts are a Bridge between Man and Mankind.
