Editorial Reviews

In muscular, emphatic tones, actor Fleet Cooper packs every moment of Jeffrey A. Carver's Going Alien with adventure. The six short stories in this collection shine with Carver's Nebula-nominated talent. Whether wrestling in an intergalactic match, battling aliens, or falling in love in deep space, Cooper draws listeners in to the fast-paced fun with perfectly pitched storytelling. Listeners will be interested in the introductions to the stories included in this volume, which provide context for the writing of the stories. Some of the stories became the basis for Carver's later novels. Anyone who has followed Carver's career will be fascinated by this exciting addition to his work.

Somewhat rare

Thinking and even writing from non-human albeit sentinent perspective. Enjoyed I did them...It's not easy to empath with a potential implacable enemy.
