Transcript (J ut of this world Beyond Justin Lieber's teaching lies a trilogy Justin Leiber thinks he's a science fiction writer. Therefore he is. Leiber, a professor of philosophy, hopes to continue his success in science-fiction writing with his latest book, Beyond Gravity . This novel is the latest in Leiber's "Beyond Trilogy," including Beyong Rejection and Beyond Humanity . References to UH appear in all his non- philosophical writing. "I feel that the University of Houston and, in particular, Shasta IV contributed to the books. It gave me something to write about.'' Leiber said he used his experiences with Shasta to form a cat character in his early works. In 1979, Leiber served on the Cougar Guard and worked with Shasta IV. "I developed a relationship with that cat," Leiber said. "She was very special." In the two fantasy novels and Beyong Rejection, Shasta IV makes an appearance, interacting with the main characters. In Leiber's newest book, UH is mentioned when the main character recalls results from the 2109 Solar Spaceball Series — in which the Houston Cougars beat the Titan Tigers. "This book is as much play as it is sober philosophy," Leiber said. "(It explores) our long-run destiny to get off Earth." Leiber says the novel also "jokes about human pretensions of intelligence," he said. In the book, computers and monkeys show remarkably human characteristics. "It puts them on an equal footing with humans," Leiber said, "To many, that't a frightening prospect." "One theme (of the nov el) is that getting beyond gravity is natural. I try to correct it with the childhood dream of flying." Leiber also examines the question of the degree of intelligence in monkeys and apes. Leiber has already started writing his next fiction work. "I hope to call it Lord Getty Grey stroke," he said. "It's about a crazy empire-building Texan who sets up the stronghold on Earth for chimpanzees and computers." The title is an allusion to Getty Oil and the Greys- tokes, which was the family name of Burrough's Tarzan. The action will be set before the events in the 4'Beyond Trilogy." It will tell the tale of the Brazoria Republic in 2015, which is alluded to many times in the other books. ► Shannon Crabtree Chemical Engineering led Moore to write fantasy John Moore, a 29 — year old UH senior was named a finalist in L. Ron Hubbard's 4'Writers of the Future" science-fiction contest. A chemical engineering major, Moore was nominated as a finalist for his short story fantasy, "High Fast Fish." The story is set in the near future of the U.S. space coloniza tion program and centers on an oversized catfish roaming freely in a space colony. As a finalist, Moore had his story published in Vol. IV of Writers oj the Future Anthology. The book has sold more than 50,000 copies, and Moore said he received a tremendous amount of publicity with various publishers. Moore received $400 for his published story and won a trip to Los Angeles for a seminar and awards ceremony. The contest entries are received quarterly and is open to novice and amateur writers who have not professionally published any novels and not more than three short stories. ► Liesl Owens 48 ■ People
