Product description


"An intriguing look at colonization from the viewpoint of those being taken over." --Publishers Weekly

"This is the start to a great trilogy . . . and an enjoyable read for any lover of first-contact sf." --Booklist

"A first contact story like no other: it eerily and wittily depicts a fast-forward vision of a near-future in which our own world is both utterly recognizable and utterly transformed. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Neither will you." --Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss, Available Dark, and Hard Light.

"Brilliantly crafted, fiercely real, Alien Morning is first contact as it may very well happen: experienced by one, shared by all who subscribe. Relentless and original, this is science fiction that matters now. Highly Recommended." - Julie E. Czerneda, author of The Clan Chronicles

"A startlingly credible reflection of how our society copes--or doesn't cope--with its own strangeness." -- Stephen R. Donaldson

"Rick Wilber's new novel brings together elements of a vivid near-future family saga and the global consequences of the arrival on Earth of technologically superior aliens. Through a charming first-person celebrity narrator who struggles with his flaws, Wilber deploys these elements so that the human drama reflects and illuminates the interspecies conflict, and vice versa, in a compellingly original way. You'll not soon forget either Peter Holman, the narrator, or Twoclicks, the S'hudonni prince with his alien antagonists and allies." -- Michael Bishop, author of A FUNERAL FOR THE EYES IF FIRE and PHILIP K. DICK IS DEAD, ALAS

"Effortlessly mashes up its big science fiction theme of mysterious aliens and the terrorists who love them with a gritty backstage tour of semi-professional sports and also with an unflinching look at a troubled family. . . . Rick Wilber has definitely arrived!" -- James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards

"What happens when journalists use senses, not just words? This nifty look at an eye-opening future is well worth your time." --Gregory Benford, author of Timescape

"An enjoyably thought-provoking novel about human and alien sibling rivalries with potentially civilization-destroying ramifications, punctuated by basketball, high tech, and a unique alien seductress." --L.E. Modesitt, Jr.

"Chalk up another home run for Wilber, one of the most thoughtful and literate science-fiction writers working today. Alien Morning is classic shoe-on-the-other-foot speculation about Earth itself being colonized, and Wilber pulls it off with sophistication and panache." -- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Quantum Night

"Rick Wilber has written the best "first contact" story I've seen in decades: deeply human, eerily alien, and altogether an exciting, moving and thought-provoking novel." --Ben Bova

"A rousing adventure. Kept me guessing to the last line." --Jack McDevitt

"The best first-contact novel I've read in some time." --Joe Haldeman

"An engaging blend of humor, skepticism and wonder, and the futuristic elements of the story sound in many cases all too probable." --Tampa Bay Times

About the Author

RICK WILBER has had short fiction published in the major science fiction magazines, including The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. Parts of Alien Morning have been published in Asimov's Science Fiction. He lives in Southern Florida.
