Former Honeywell Vice President of Technology Ronald E. Peterson spent a weekend in early November selling copies of his debut sci-fi thriller, Gardeners of the Universe, at GalaxyCon Minneapolis . The festival celebrating pop culture took place from Nov. 8 - 10 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Gardeners of the Universe begins in the not too distant future with the births of three children destined to change the world. Rianne grows up to lead biological revolutions. Dan creates sentient computers and guides the direction of human evolution. Sarah, in an age of information dissonance, becomes the most trusted individual on Earth, and convinces the world that it must change. What sets the three apart from the rest of humanity are genetics and “gifts” that were no accident.
The book shows how the children and their totally different families adapt to disruptive new technologies in transportation, medicine, communication, as well as global catastrophe. The focus is on how people will change themselves, through mechanical devices, augmented intelligence, and ultimately altering our genetics, and how these shifts will affect real people.

A lot of people are convinced that dogs know exactly what's going on around them, and if they could talk, boy would they have a lot to say. Well, the latest adventures of a Lina, a Toy Australian Shephard who has figured out how to commuicate with humans, thanks to help from her owner, are shared in a new book launched at the Barnes and Noble Galleria in Edina, Minn.,on Nov, 9.
About 50 people attended the public launch event for Sit Stay Pray, in which the topsy-turvy life Lina first wrote about in Lina Unleashed, has only gotten crazier! There's the time Momma set the house on fire by mistake (presumably) and Lina almost got arrested during a photo shoot.
Proceeds from this laugh-out-loud funny book will be donated to two great causes: the Animal Humane Society, which cares for over 23,000 animals per year, and Helping Paws of Minnesota, which breeds, trains, and places assistance dogs to help the disabled, veterans, and first responders with PTSD.

More than 70 years have passed since they served their country, but their sacrifice will never be forgotten. On Nov. 7, 18 veterans who now make their home at The Waters on 50th senior living community were honored for their service during the community’s Fall Ball, which was covered by KSTP Television, The Southwest Journal and the MN Sun Current.
Among them, three World War Two heroes who each received Quilts of Valor. The honorees are Dr. Sheldon Mandel, who is now 97. He served from 1943 - 1949 in the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Medical Services Corp., and did a tour of duty with a M.A.S.H. unit aboard the hospital ship U.S.S. Comfort.
96-year old Chape McCabe, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. from 1942 to 1946, spending time in the South Pacific.
And 95 year old Harold Lundeen received the Purple Heart for wounds suffered while in action in the Pacific Theatre. He served with the U.S. Army’s Company B 187th Parachute Glider Infantry 11th Airborne Division from 1944 - 1946. A 4th resident who has previously received a Quilt of Valor also lives at the community. His name is Jim Kemp.
Quilts of Valor is a program started in 2003 by Delaware resident Catherine Roberts, whose son, Nate, had been deployed to Iraq. She felt a need to say “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor” to as many servicemen and women as she could.
After the ceremony, the celebration continued with a champagne reception, dinner and dancing to The Execs Big Band, a 17 piece orchestra.
Elliott Foster's latest novel, Panic River, published by Calumet Editions, officially launched with a party at the Black Dog Cafe in St. Paul on Nov. 2.
Panic River is the story of Corey Fischer, a gay man on the cusp of his 40s. As the story gets underway, he stands to lose all connections in his life, from his family, which has disowned him because of his sexuality, to his chosen husband Nick, who has betrayed his trust. His artistic pursuits do not hold the promise they once did, either, and this is one of the reasons Nick, who has been largely supporting them, has grown distant and disappointed.
In her review of the book, D. Donovan, the senior reviewer for Midwest Book Review says, "In many ways, Panic River is the quintessential story of middle-age revelations and angst; but it also presents an edgy exploration of the impact of an inheritance which changes everything and exposes the darker underside of a much-changed relationship.... Elliott Foster excels at creating a hard-hitting story that begins softly, with a life on the verge of big changes, and then moves into the protagonist's ability to accept illusion and, finally, reality. This forces him - and readers - to understand not only the pull and power of past influences, but their ability to craft and warp present-day reality."
