Product Description


?This is a wildly oscillating, engrossing exploration of future human bodies in a time of alien contact, of extraordinary space travel and in a climate of suppressed terror? Stelarc ?This is science-fiction at its best; Armstrong takes an idea and runs with it, wherever it may lead. Deeply conceptual, outlandish, and absorbing? Gay TImes

Format: Paperback
A hilarious and sometime painful analysis of the 'human condition' seen through the eyes of an alien whose role within the traditional abduction process has been reversed. Armstrong's ascerbic wit makes for a bittersweet satire on 'being human' whilst introducing some novel and entertaining SF themes. This gem of a first novel keeps you guessing right until the very end ...

Alien Landscapes & Altered Bodies 29 Nov. 2010
By Ben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An intriguing and darkly satirical science fiction story about an alien who finds itself abducted by humans. The Chronicler, whose job on its own home planet Rune 66 is to make documents finds itself needing to keep these human encounters secret from its colleagues, the Grays - a psychic meta colony whose 'coming in to being' or 'birth' takes place - from the recycled remains of 'deviant' Grays - through the birth passage of the mine dwelling Sliica Worms. The Chronicler knows that if its serial abductions are disclosed to the authorities it will be 'recycled' and its memories erased. This is a task more difficult that it may seem since the Grays share a collective mind. The Chronicler decides to hide its deviancy in' plain sight' and disguises its human encounters as a 'game show' style broadcast that becomes a ratings hit with its colleagues. This is a twisted, surprising, alternative-anatomical view of our future as seen through the eyes of an alien observer and keeps the reader guessing about what is coming next. An original and fresh first novel!
