A Second Coming and Other Stories
After a sudden, silent, but brilliantly dazzling meteor shower one night, nothing seems very much different…except for an odd little fungus that appears on computer consultant Stanley’s deck next morning. But then his cat Livingston begins acting strangely and has what seems to be a fatal seizure. This is the prelude to a suspenseful and romantically enlightening journey of discovery into the Oregon wilderness for Stanley and the feisty but alluring veterinarian Penelope. It might also mark the beginning of a whole new epoch of human/animal/alien relations. That’s the gist of A Second Coming, the first in this witty little collection of science fiction and magical reality that takes the reader on a comic trek around the galaxy and back again. From extra-terrestrial bureaucratic disputes, to a magical cure for foot-in-mouth gaffes, to an up-to-the minute twist on the revenge of the machines, A Second Coming and Other Stories will keep readers amused and musing about both the past and the future with every page turn.
