Overview

IN SITU is a new anthology of science fiction stories featuring alien archaeology, hidden mysteries, and things that are better off left buried.

A quiet man finds more than he bargained for when he sets out with his metal detector on a lonely hill … A soldier meets a new kind of enemy fighting an altogether different kind of war … On a distant swamp planet, a woman questions what kind of human she’s becoming … a pregnant archaeologist finds a connection with a long-dead alien child … while deep space scavengers wonder what it ever meant to be human at all. These fifteen evocative science fiction stories will take you from dusty archaeologists digging up our alien past into a distant future where we’ve become the relics. Thought-provoking and entertaining, IN SITU explores science, theology, preservation, and the art of alien finance, in a whole new way.

Edited by Carrie Cuinn. Contains stories by Ken Liu, KV Taylor, Paul A. Dixon, Bear Weiter, Mae Empson, Jason Andrew, Greg Burch, Sarah Hendrix, R.S. Hunter, Rebecca Lloyd, Alex Shvartsman, Kelly C. Stiles, Graham Storrs, David J. West, and Dawn Vogel.

Editorial Reviews

Functional Nerds - Paul Weimer
I would recommend In Situ to those readers who do like the thrill of uncovering alien ruins in their science fiction. In Situ gives you that fix at bite size story length, as well as the happy serendipity of supporting and reading the work of an enthusiastic and innovative small press.

I get the concept - these are stories about artifacts found in situ, or unmoved from their original place of discovery. What I don't get is why "in situ" also apparently implies sketch story or anecdote. A couple of these stories show real promise, but end just when they are starting to peak your interest. Frustrating, and the first Nook purchase that I'd like to return.
