The Welcome: and other sci-fi stories

The Welcome - 141215


In this collection you will find regular people, strange people, astronauts, aliens, the Earth, other planets, exploration and invasion.

The tales are made interesting by manipulating the situations in which the characters find themselves. Sometimes, all is not what it seems …

There is a high degree of ‘What if …?’ in the telling of these stories, which is where I believe the sci-fi aspect evolves effectively.
