Conspiracy Theories

My alien invasion conspiracy story Fool Britannia appeared in Aphelion this time a year ago. It received the most comments of any story I've had published so far. Here are a few of the highlights:

"The subtlety of some of the historical events made it fun to figure them out."

"In short, very eloquent, funny (the footie side explanation was quite convincing, i'm afraid), and reminiscent of our conspiracy theory faves."

"I thought this was a well written story, both fun and funny."

"A good little story and a tight read."

"The punch line at the end is priceless."

"Conspiracies rule...and this story had an enlightening angle on the genre, utilizing excellent so-called British humor (often said to be dry), and this droll officialspeak which always works well in a comical setting."
