Winner of Honorable Mention in Future Writers of America contest (Electric Raspberries, 2nd Quarter Honorable Mention 2019 FWA by Galaxy Press)

Have you ever wondered what a UFO abduction is like from the alien’s viewpoint? Can a machine provide comfort to a dying woman? What would it be like to fall into the hands of a get-rich-quick scheming extraterrestrial? All these questions and more are answered in this book of wonderfully crafted short stories by breakout author J.J. Harlan.

If Ray Bradbury and Douglas Adams collaborated on writing, they’d present something like this incredible collection of science fiction short stories. Ranging from achingly beautiful to uproariously hilarious, this remarkable compilation of stories will evoke nostalgic feelings of the golden days of science fiction, when the promises of the future mingled with the pains of the human present. 

In these short stories, you’ll listen to:

  • Alien first contact and their surprising reason to visit Earth
  • UFO abductions gone wrong
  • A shocking population control program in a dystopian future
  • What androids can learn from humans
  • Hilarious extraterrestrial comedy
  • And much, much more...

 They will both remind you of the classic shorts you know and love, and turn sci-fi comedy tropes inside out and upside down.

Scroll up and click "buy now". You'll be glad you did!
