Cocoon is the last entry into our first contact series and is the most complex character wise.  Each of our entries has had a quite different take on first contact, from war to alien superintelligences and this one is no different.  Three occupants of an old peoples home and a boat owner make contact with a group of aliens and the result will change their lives.  Science fiction is not renowned for a large number of stories that involve older characters so this is an especially welcome entry.

It’s been a lot of fun looking at First Contact, I am looking forward to the Singularity starting next week.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
