From a technological dystopia to small town Canada, this collection of short fiction explores themes of change, memory, and things hiding in the shadows. These tales, previously-published and new, take classic space opera, pest problems, and the recent past in new and fresh directions.

Will electric light cast a world into darkness? Do you remember 1971, when Kennedy was in the White House, Hendrix sang about space, and the extraterrestrials returned? Has the invasion of the live nude aliens already begun? When you look at the world and see things slightly askew - our reality tilted just a few degrees - then you get stories like these.

Reviews for Live Nude Aliens and Other Stories

"There’s enough to chew on in these clever "what-ifs" to make this worthwhile for SFF readers." - Publishers Weekly
