Fantasy Literary Fiction Science Fiction dementia caregiving the moon illusion aliens aging Parents Caren Gussoff

Prone to flights of fantasy, my father was also a product of his culture -- lost to him after many years of estrangement from his family, as distant from him as another world. This piece first appeared in mixer (2012)

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?
