“Vooorh” Is Out in Analog!

 (ahem. Note name at lower right) :-D

Vooorh is an alien, one of two that Sara and Jason and their dog Shep encountered on the mountain back of their farm in the short story “Two Look at Two” (Analog, April 2011.)

This story takes up the account four days after that meeting, but stands firmly on its own.

As a novelette, it allows closer examination of the wary but evolving relationship between Human and Other. But questions remain: Who are these beings from the stars? Why are they here? What do they want? Does their presence bode well or ill for humans. And … are they the only aliens on the mountain…?

Like “Two Look at Two,” “Vooorh” is adapted from my novel in progress, a present-day “people-to-people” alien contact story set in the mountains of western North Carolina.

    • Thank you Kristen. I have to say, I am very excited about this.

      I’d like to say again, too, how much I appreciate and enjoyed the opportunity for the guest post on Fantasy Cafe this month. Thank you.

        Thank you for writing a guest post! I very much enjoyed reading about your influences and research. I also read the article about your physics professor you linked to and found that very interesting too.
