I drove out the the desert with some friends in the middle of a heatwave. The good part was that there wasn’t a soul out there. The bad part was 30 mph winds smacking us in the face with 115 degree heat. It was so hot that the coolant in the Jeep was boiling the whole time.

Science Fiction aliens religion teleportation catholic church

The usual warning for me: This story contains sex and religion in ways that might not be considered nice by everybody. It appeared in the first issue of Future Orbits, edited by Tom Vander Neut. There's a nice entry about the magazine on the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.

Science Fiction aliens

I think, when it comes to my writing, that there will be this dividing line between my ‘bleak’ phase and something else. I feel like I’m straddling that line right now: with no clear idea where to go from here, but with a distinct feeling that I need to make something less… sad. Can I write hope? Can I imagine something better than what I think we’re in for? I don’t know. Let’s see. Anyway, this is not that. This is from my bleak period. Enjoy!

Fantasy Literary Fiction Science Fiction dementia caregiving the moon illusion aliens aging Parents Caren Gussoff

I wrote The Moon Illusion as a way to make sense of my father's organic dementia. He moved near us after my mother passed, then in with us after a broken shoulder. Prone to flights of fantasy, my father was also a product of his culture -- lost to him after many years of estrangement from his family, as distant from him as another world. This piece first appeared in mixer (2012)
