Featured Fiction Title:

Flight of the Siren

A scientist discovers an alien artifact with a faster-than-light engine. She launches a search for its creators: a search which reveals a disturbing truth about her own world.

“Flight of the Siren is a masterpiece. It isn’t about outer space or aliens, it’s about us, and we are the weirdest subject imaginable. It is probably the most detailed study you will ever read of the near-infinite number of ways nations, organizations and individuals will compete for purely imaginary advantages over one another. An amusing satire well worth reading. Recommended.” –– Review in Amazing Stories.

It’s a name for the most glorious of humanity’s monuments and cultural achievements. Yet it also speaks of the conquests, oppressions, and empires which make that glory possible.

It’s the process by which we find what it is to be human– not by discovery, but by invention.
