Triptych by JM Frey
"“You know those movies where the aliens come to Earth, and they… I dunno, they try to steal our natural resources, or create a nuclear winter so they can turn the Earth into slag, or they melt the polar ice caps and New York is under fathoms of water, or they clone us for slaves, or create terrifying bioweapons and wipe us all out and use our cities for farmland, or…all that stuff? It was nothing like that.”
Part District 9, part Lost in Translation, partStranger in a Strange Land, Triptych is a poignant, character-driven science fiction story about tolerance, love and loss."
