The Aliens Among Us Bundle, curated by Dean Wesley Smith and Allyson Longueira:
Science fiction readers all know that the main theme of all science fiction is the alien among us. Early on, when science fiction was a genre only read by science geeks and kids who built their own telescopes, readers felt that they were the aliens in the larger real world.
And science fiction stories and novels helped explain so much of what they were feeling.
Now, science fiction has grown into this wonderful place of sharing ideas and stories worldwide, no longer just reserved for the science geek. But aliens and being alien is still the major theme of most of the books and stories.
So, when I got the chance to help curate this wonderful bundle with Allyson Longueira, I jumped at the chance to round up some of the top science fiction writers working in modern fiction.

The End of the World by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"The End of The World" is a tale of reconstruction and an alien encounter that is one of the saddest stories I've ever read."– Barry Hunter, The Baryon Review
Fade to Gold by Stefon Mears
"The author's ability to bring characters to life is on full display in this story and draws you in immediately. The story itself engages your brain and keeps you wondering…"– Amazon Review
Scifi Motherlode by Robert Jeschonek
"Playing Doctor" is an almost-love-story between a mad scientist and her slavishly-devoted sycophantic toady…and only Jeschonek would have had the – I don't know: skill? lunacy? chutzpah? – to tell it in the first person of the toady, and to make it work. It is a totally unique, off-the-wall, completely successful almost-love-story, and you don't get any more individualistic than that.– Mike Resnick
Rita Longknife - Enemy Unknown by Mike Shepherd
"A great jump back in time, and a clear foundation for the (damned) Longknife's Universe! "– Amazon Review
Backli's Ford by Marcelle Dube
"Marcelle Dubé has long been one of my favorite writers. Her stories are quietly deceptive. They creep up on you, and make you think."– Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Assemblers of Infinity by Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason
"Only Kevin J. Anderson could write such a fast-paced, gripping, story that makes extremely complex technology understandable via his description of the Moon Base's discovery of the ruined antennae on the far side of the Moon."– Amazon Revew
Undermountain by Eric Kent Edstrom
". . . a rollicking tale of discovery."– Kirkus Reviews
