THE RETURN BEGINS
A diverse team of authors unite to envision the impact on Earth when it is revisited by its own species. Ten different narratives tackle the same premise, yet the resulting stories couldn't be more different..
Earth’s story is littered with fantastic tales of alien contact, both past and future. Some of these tales bring light and hope, while others make us shiver with horror. But what happens when the foreign visitors look remarkably like us? How will the world react when instead of extraterrestrials, it’s humans who return to earth?
The possibilites are endless. And they are told in these stories.
Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future.
~H. G. Wells, the Time Machine
