    Summary

    For centuries humans have dreamt about life on other worlds, whether its within myth and religion, or up in the sky- in space.

    Maru has never felt like she belonged on this planet. Her head is in the night sky and her feet untethered to reality. She's wrapped up in searching for those signs of life, listening for a signal, anything that might suggest there's more to the universe than what she can see through her telescope.

    Abigail feels like she's never grown up and maybe she never will. She's still chasing legends and stories, no matter how dangerous they might be. A threat on her life is nothing, when she'd give up everything just to solve the mysteries of the past.

    The two interact throughout painful growing years in life, when both feel alienated and alone. A future discovery in the desert might lead to more than just ruins and sand. A story about two dreamers, who look deeply into the past and future, only to find themselves in the present staring at each other.

    Summary

    “Do you remember the message, Gran?”

    My wife laughed a little and my brother and his husband rolled their eyes as we settled in for the evening. My mother wasn’t frail yet, but she had been alive for long enough that the kids thought she would be eternal. 

    “Of course I do, little ones,” my mother said, settling into her favorite chair. Minnie was the only one still small enough to sit on the chair with her, and the other kids settled around her, even Charlotte and Gray despite their proud status as high schoolers. “I was in middle school when the President announced the signal.”

    Summary

    It's 2004. The alien race from Vega makes contact again, and this time they want to visit, and to help the Earth fight the colonization of the virus-born aliens. But what is their true intention? What is the Divine or Demonic nature of the Spaceship that everybody wants, and to whom does it rightfully belong? Is the Earth just a chessboard, or does Humanity have a greater role to play? Starring a cast of characters from the X-Files, Carl Sagan's "Contact", and the "Wrinkle in Time" universe created by the incomparable Madeleine L'Engle.
