Science Fiction aliens military tentacles

My daughter, my lover, my missing baby brother. She had been one of them once, left searching for Matt after the colossal security failure at Kauai. Nothing since had been as bad as that. The uncertainty, wondering if he was out there somewhere, in pain and alone . . . She'd found him. Once in a lifetime, impossible stroke of luck.

Science Fiction aliens space spaceships

According to my mom, the only thing I've ever been good at is sitting around like an idiot, and she's 100% right. Whereas my co-pilot Allie O'Donovan--with her calibrated synesthetic schizophrenia, and her ability to fly spaceships through Ureality for faster-than-light travel--is interesting, and probably the sort of person who's good at everything. So how come when we fly missions together, she's the one who's afraid?

Science Fiction aliens first contact motherhood

The Sulusk is a special guest on the Johnny Carson show. Its body looks like broken glass, and its voice emerges through a staticky translator to say: one human of their choosing will become ambassador to Earth. At home, Sally immediately knows they speak of her infant daughter—even if no one else believes her.

Premee Mohamed is an Indo-Caribbean scientist and spec fic writer based in Canada. Her work has been published by Automata Review, Mythic Delirium, Pseudopod, Nightmare Magazine, and many others.

Science Fiction aliens mother children mistaken identity strange visitors hobbits

Stephen King once said that he used his writing in the horror genre to confront his worst fears. His philosophy was to call them out, not hide from them. I decided to try this out and got one of my favorite science fiction stories out of it. It first appeared in Analog magazine and was later anthologized in a fantasy anthology from Questar, placed firmly in the midst of actual fantasy stories. Did writing "Hobbits" really help deal with a mother's fears? It did.
