I’ve been thinking for a while. Time is running out and there is no good way out of this. We will have to leave with Ed, or we risk losing the alien contact opportunity of the millennium. All we have to rely on in that...

I would not think that anything can surprise me at this stage. I seem to be oversaturated with  a thoroughly unlikely series of unimaginable revelations and an absurd amount of unpredictable twists that my life has taken in rapid succession. Still, what I saw just...

Well, apparently you can call me “your excellency” from now on. We were just offered an ambassador titles for the entire human race by Ed. Crazy, eh? Well, to be fair, I suspect that’s not how it’s usually done, and nobody on Earth would ever...

What would be the literary equivalent of scratching my head? You figure it out, I’m too tired. As my chances of survival have just rapidly increased, I realised that there is a real chance somebody could actually read what I’m writing here. Now I’m not...

I pulled the alien joystick up and the drone shot up into the blue sky like a cat that just saw a particularly menacing cucumber. It took me a few moments to get used to the overly sensitive controls, but once I did, I felt...

We were flying at the shuttle’s top speed, which was, scientifically speaking, ridiculously fast. I have instructed the ship to approach the Arabella and hold as far as it was practical for its optical sensors to resolve enough detail, so we could see if they...
