DAVID M. HARRIS, “Changing the World”: We’ve received a message: Hold on. We’re coming. The aliens are coming! Now what do we do? Dr. George Metesky faces this problem when he gets the message from space. And how can he know whether or not he has the right answer?

History surrounds us. You cannot open your eyes, not in Paris, and see something that wasn’t touched by someone long gone. You, maybe, run from your ghosts. Here, they live among us.

Lynn Sheene, The Last Time I Saw Paris (via quoted-books)

INDRAPRAMIT DAS, “The Widow and the Xir”: When newly-widowed Sanih’s grief begins to call the desert ghost of her husband Namir to her tribe’s travelling camp, she must find a way to put his death behind her or endanger them all. “A neat fantasy world and a strong story of love… Recommended.”—Locus Online
