Alien Morning

Peter Holman is a freelance sweeper. The year 2030 sees a new era in social media. Sweepcasting, a multisensory interface that can convey every thought, touch, smell, sight, and sound, can immerse the audience in another person’s experience.

By fate, chance, or some darker design, Peter is perfectly positioned to be the one human to document the arrival of the aliens, the S’hudonni.

To Leuchars

Rick’s novel To Leuchars (Wildside, 2000), which gathered together a novel’s worth of his previously published S’hudonni stories, was called a “minor masterpiece” on SFSite.com.

Peter Holman would become a central figure in a power struggle of Galactic proportions, a man whose fate dictated the fates of worlds. And in the end he’ll pay a price for his ambition that no man could bear to pay.
