Companion

by Misguided Child

Caleb Connor's life is out of control: understatement! An extraterrestrial space ship crashed on his campsite, and an ancient, ethereal alien took up residence in his head. He doesn't get along with the alien, partially because the alien thinks he landed in a defective human. The Army investigates the crash, and the General in charge has more plans than just protecting the country. Throw in a pretty doctor and a hole in the fabric of creation... Yep. Very out of control.

Anomaly of the Fates

by Celtic Bard

Immortality. What does that mean? Not the definition but the actuality of living forever. What is the difference bewtween living a life you know will end and a life that could go on until the sun burns out? This silly notion is what confronts a young man on his 30th birthday as events spin out of control and go from a surprise family get-together to a struggle of cosmological proportions. This is the tragic story of Tiernan Cathal MacCormac's 30th birthday and what happens in the aftermath.

Once Upon an Alien

by Misguided Child

This story is fiction, but not the facts. Information from Sumerian translations are true. Hindu texts of battles in space...true. Einstein's brain autopsy proved that he used more of his brain than other humans. How is that possible? How do men get flashes of genius, and why doesn't everyone function at that level of ability all the time? Why did the Dark Ages happen, and why does mankind seem to be sliding that direction again? This story is fiction, I hope.
