Moondust Memories brings together eleven of Vaughan Stanger's personal favourites from his published science fiction. Ten of these short stories have previously appeared in Kindle editions, while the eleventh is the seed for his novel-in-progress.
Stories included in this collection:
- Moon Flu
- Slices of Life
- Touching Distance
- The English Dead
- Stars in Her Eyes
- String-driven Thing
- First and Third
- The Eye Patch Protocol
- Star in a Glass
- Dark, They Were, and Strange Inside
- Survival Strategies (new to Kindle)
These innovative and imaginative short stories explore a wide variety of themes: from an alternative outcome to the Cold War to the reminiscences of an aging ex-astronaut; from flesh-crawling virtual reality simulations to monetised SETI dreaming. But without exception, their main focus is on ordinary people whose lives are changed by extraordinary events. If you crave intelligent, literate, thought-provoking science-fiction, then this collection is for you.
Moondust Memories contains 43000 words of science fiction, also the author's introduction to the collection, notes for each story, and biographical and bibliographical details.
BIOGRAPHY Formerly an astronomer and more recently a research project manager working in a defense and aerospace company, Vaughan Stanger is now a full-time writer of science fiction and fantasy. His thirty-nine published short stories have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Abyss & Apex, Postscripts, Nature Futures, and Interzone, amongst others, and have been translated into seven foreign languages. Vaughan is a member of the British Science Fiction Association and the British Fantasy Society. He has attended the Milford SF Writers Conference five times and is a first reader for submissions sent to Albedo One magazine. Later this year, he is co-curating an evening of near-future fiction readings for Virtual Futures. Vaughan expresses his concerns about the future in his fiction, but still craves the holiday on the Moon he remembers being promised as a child.
