Is the United States losing its creative edge and unrivaled position in producing and commercializing big ideas for over a century? These stories explore contemporary issues where innovation is a central theme and characters push the envelope.* A retired college professor in Savannah's Historic District is swept into a super-secret program designed to prevent autonomous machines from running amok.
* Returning home, a disabled vet helps hold a young family together, energizes a floundering business, and refuses to succumb to living as a broken man doing odd jobs and cleaning up behind the able-bodied people he fought for.
* Frustrated by escalating college costs and a lackluster job market, three students team up at a Homecoming party to develop and sell a radical military surveillance technology.
* Bored and unchallenged, a single working mother risks raising the National Security Threat Level to escape her humdrum life and re-kindle the competitive spirit of her youth.
* An idea from an incomplete item discarded during a garage sale could pay off big.
* If Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had allied Ford and GE, built electric cars, and relocated from Detroit to a mega-site in the South that Ford was promoting after WWI, how would history have been written?
