Lanethros by Richard Sills In a futuristic society, conflict
situations are resolved peacefully. Lantheros, though also an
engaging novel, is a statement against war. Its pages present the
reflection of the positive and peaceful alternative to war.
Lantheros poses answers to age-old questions and those of ages to
come. What are beings of other planets like, how do they relate to
each other, and how do they solve their conflicts? How do they
relate to their thinking computers? What do they think of less
advanced planets, like the planet Earth, for instance? Lanethros is
a humorous puzzle. You can read it as a puzzle to be resolved in
the second book of the series, Antivion. About the Author Educator,
computer scientist, and humorist, Richard Sills was named "Educator
of the Decade" for his experimental and groundbreaking use of
children as teachers. Artwork resulting from his educational
experiment was displayed throughout New York City in the late
1970's. He received quite a bit of publicity during this time. As a
computer scientist, he has held five patents in computer systems
and has developed a means to create a sentient, a "thinking
computer." Mr. Sills is the founding sponsor of the Walter and
Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center at the Ronald Reagan
Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, California. He ran
a humorous campaign for President as the "Children's Party"
write-in candidate for President in the 1980's. Mr. Sills currently
lives in Florida and continues to write.
