Fiction Friday: Miscellaneous Notes From The Time An Alien Came To Band Camp Disguised As My Alto Sax

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is finally out! Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Help support a fresh new author with a fantastic read this winter season.

Fiction Friday is a series where I talk about what I’ve been reading. Short Stories (and sometimes Novellas) are featured as in-between posts and the first Friday of the month will feature a new novel review. Today, I review Miscellaneous Notes From The Time An Alien Came To Band Camp Disguised As My Alto Sax by Tina Connolly.

 

One thing that drives me to stories is absurd titles. Just read the title of this short story. “Miscellaneous notes from the time an alien came to band camp disguised as my alto sax.” What is it about? Who is this alien? Why does he disguise himself as an alto saxophone? Who knows, but it’s a good flash story for a busy week.

So yeah, the title’s up there, written by Tina Connolly, as featured in Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine. You can buy the issue featuring it here. It’s been a busy week, trying to get my work done, but I figured a fun flash story would suffice. Plus, it’s rare I review flash fiction anyway, so let’s see what this whole thing is about.

Time to switch things up. This time, we have a frog as the main protagonist. Well, kind of, but it’s strange and gloriously satisfying as you’d expect.

Beyond the Stars is a series of Science Fiction related posts where I discuss different aspects of the genre and review movies and shows associated with it. Today, I review Alita: Battle Angel, from 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment.

Much like video game movies, anime movies are often criticized for being too unrealistic, too cartoony, and most of the time, really bad. We do have the Detective Pikachu movie, which seeks to shatter both these droughts, but there’s one that seems to be one not many are talking about. Alita: Battle Angel, based on an OVA released in 1993 about a battle hardened cyborg who wishes to discover who she is and what her purpose is in this futuristic life. So, let’s get into it.
