NOMINATED FOR THE 2016 PHILIP okay. DICK AWARD
“When the alien will get round to unzipping her jumpsuit it’ll be very unlikely to work out what’s underneath.”
UFOlogist Harold Flint is heartbroken and depressed that the extraterrestrial beings that experience landed at the White condo garden seem to be directly out of an outdated B motion picture. They wave to the tv cameras of their sequined jumpsuits, shape a nonprofit association supplying new age enlightenment, and hover their saucers over the streets of latest York trying to find converts.
Harold wishes no a part of this kitschy invasion until eventually one of many extraterrestrial beings, a stunning blonde named Asket, begs him to enquire the saucers back and write one other alien craft e-book. The extraterrestrial beings and their project should not as they seem.
Asket isn’t who she turns out both. monitoring down her precise character leads Harold and his cowriter via a maze of identification and body-swapping insanity, descending into paranoia as Harold realizes that fact, or not less than humanity’s notion of it, might be extra versatile than somebody will admit.
After the Saucers Landed is a deeply unsettling experimental satire, putting writer Douglas Lain along contemporaries like Jeff VanderMeer and Charles Yu as certainly one of his generation’s most fun and difficult speculative fiction voices.
