NOT ONE OF US STORIES OF ALIENS ON EARTH Edited by Neil Clarke If you find a bit of yourself in these stories, this book is for you. Introduction Throughout the science fiction landscape, aliens have been used to illustrate our own best and worst traits, but from a distance that makes it more palatable than a closer look in the mirror.

The Days of Solomon Gursky by Ian McDonald Illustration by Darryl Elliott Monday Sol stripped the gear on the trail over Blood of Christ Mountain. Click-shifted down to sixth for the steep push up to the ridge, and there was no sixth. No fifth, no fourth nothing, down to zero. Elena was already up on the divide, laughing at him pushing and sweating up through the pines, muscles twisted and knotted like the trunks of the primeval bristlecones, tubes and tendons straining like bridge cable. Then ...

After Kerry by Ian McDonald Illustration by Darryl Elliott November is the dying season in our family. The light fades out of us, we grow pale and cold and fall like leaves. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins accidentally killed all the dead of November. Now, my mother. Its a good month for burying, November. The low between-light of autumn-going-winter shows the bones and struts of things the land, the things growing from it, the people standing on it. Ireland is a country that looks best by ...

Where the new bridge crosses the Ganga in five concrete strides, garlands of sticks and plastic snag around the footings rafts of river flotsam. For a moment the body might join them, a dark hunch in the black stream. The smooth flow of water hauls it, spins it around, shies it feet first through the arch of steel and traffic. Overhead trucks roar across the high spans. Day and night, convoys bright with chrome ...

Ian McDonald CHAGA Preface Though this book shares the same setting, background and many of the same characters and situations as my 1990 novelette Towards Kilimanjaro, it is not a direct sequel to that story, but rather an expansion and refinement of its ideas. Readers of both may notice a number of seeming inconsistencies these are deliberate Towards Kilimanjaro should be read as a working prototype for this book. Thanks to CEM Computers, who saved a sizeable portion of this book from ...

I dont think thats going to happen anytime soon, if it ever does, but the e-book revolution has been impressive nevertheless, and ...
