Sci-Fi Lampoon Exhales

We took a deep breath when Volume One hit the market. Would anyone read it? Do the people we appeal to even read? Are these Letters to the Editor indicative?

“Highly offensive to my sensibilities”
“extraterrestrial abuse!”
“ETs don’t even have genitalia”

Or, and this was our conclusion, are we so enthralled with the many talented submissions that we just have to release a second issue?

And here it is, thanks to the humorous stories from Y.J. Jun, Romana Guillotte, Jim Webster, Christopher Hinkle, Jeff Gard, Geoff Habiger, Margret A. Treiber, Ralph Benton, Candice R. Lisle, J.P. Roquard, James Rumpel, Bill McCormick, Carl Reed, Ian K. & M. Frank Owen, and the Space Love Sage:

  1. Very gratified to have been published therein! I’ve read the submissions from the other writers; very funny stuff–ranging in tone from the whimsically wry to manic screwball-comedy ‘Course, you have to be on a certain wavelength to appreciate these affectionate subversions of the genre. . . .

    • I laughed, reading your story, “A Matter of Displacement,” Carl. 🙂 That insightful amusement is a delight. Readers surely appreciate the disciplinary wisdom of a deep space naval commander who forbade “… in strict accordance with naval regulations, more than four to six seconds of homoerotic clenching, a brawl lasting more than three minutes, or impulsive buggering of superiors.”

    • Thanks, Curtis. We’d definitely welcome your story. Maybe, a take-off on the noir, or a satire of a crime or detective? Set it somewhere in space, on a station, a starship, a newly colonized planet, the future – wherever or whenever.
      The wonder of sci-fi, to me anyway, has always been that basic human behavior never changes no matter how far fetched the setting.

    I do agree that it’s a fabulous cover. I’ve been enjoying the stories from Volume One. I think there is a niche for this type of story and subject matter. Kudos to all who have worked so hard to provide an outlet for this creativity to be shared. RXICHIIDELPTIS [burp]!
    (that’s Telaxian for great job!)
