Profoundly intimate and inventive, Aliens Got My Sally is an unforgettable forward look into what we risk as human beings in the unthinking path we're pursuing now. Richly drawn and imaginative, it's a stand-alone Big Idea novel with heart that uses the latest in scientific thinking about the nature of the universe as bedrock for carefully-wrought speculative fiction.
An archaeologist extracts a coded message from a pre-Colombian sculpture, disclosing that Earth is a failed colony of an ancient galactic race.
Humanity will not be amused.
Aliens Got My Sally lets you ponder what it would mean to find other intelligent life in the universe. But how will you feel to find that humanity is absolutely alone? Have you stayed out late at night, telling creepy UFO abduction stories with your friend? Have you seen a UFO? Ever been abducted? You back yet?
Archaeologist Anna Lewis has thought about all these things. Chiefly she wondered why we haven't found aliens in radio signals from the stars. She reasoned that if the human race is a latecomer to intelligent civilization in our galaxy, then aliens might have been on Earth wayyy before humans developed out of the deepest rocks. What were those little green men doing? Her biologist friend Sally thinks they were infusing deep-buried microbes with their galactic DNA.
And maybe they weren't little and green at all, but looked a lot like us. So Anna, with her almost-Ph.D. and her curious mind decides to go looking for an alien mine shaft.
She found one! That was right before she fell in. Oops
This is speculative fiction, science fiction, and women's fiction (not chick lit).
