    Hi,

    I'm starting the research phase for a series of fiction novels. It's important to me that my fiction is based on plausible science, so I need to educate myself on the basics of several scientific disciplines to create a solid knowledge foundation for my books.

    I'm having a hard time finding resources that specifically address the fundamentals of what I want to know. I'd really appreciate your recommendation of introductory-level books or other resources that discuss the different types of known energies on Earth and beyond, how those energies are measured/manifested at a quantum level, and how those energies are perceived by humans and other species.

    Also, please let me know if you are a energy physics expert (or if you know of one) that would be willing to answer questions in return for an honorable mention in the books. Please note that my physics SME (subject matter expert) would need to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement, that Id present questions in batches by e-mail and would prefer to collect answers back via e-mail but could also call if necessary (by appointment), and that the first batch of questions will probably not arrive for several months or longer.

    Thank you!

    Cheers,

    HL Viher

    Hi,

    There is a REALLY good and freely downloadable book called "Motion Mountain" - Unfortunately it is not published, which is a shame because id love to buy a proper hard copy.


    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    As usual, it's at www.motionmountain.net - I now have edition 23 online. I hope that edition 25 will appear on paper. Enjoy!
