Moondust Memories: A Science Fiction Collection by Vaughan Stanger, Tony Hughes

Moondust Memories brings together eleven of Vaughan Stanger's personal favourites from his published science fiction. One of these, Survival Strategies, is the seed for his novel-in-progress.

These innovative and imaginative short stories explore a wide variety of themes: from an alternative outcome to the Cold War to the reminiscences of an aging ex-astronaut; from flesh-crawling virtual reality simulations to monetised SETI dreaming. But without exception, their main focus is on ordinary people whose lives are changed by extraordinary events. If you crave intelligent, literate, thought-provoking science-fiction, then this collection is for you.

An exerpt from Paul Laville's review of Moondust Memories: "In summary, 'Moondust Memories' is a rewarding read in the best possible way. A wonderful collection of thought-provoking and challenging stories that you will enjoy whether you're a fan of sci-fi or not."

Dylan S Hearn had this to say about Moondust Memories: "The tell-tale sign of great speculative fiction is that you are still thinking about it days after you finish reading. This has been the case for me with Moondust Memories. Highly recommended."

Moondust Memories contains 43000 words of science fiction, also the author's introduction to the collection, notes for each story, and biographical and bibliographical details.

About the Author

Until recently, Vaughan Stanger worked as a research manager at a British engineering company. From 1997 to 2011, he wrote science fiction and fantasy stories in his spare time, effectively setting himself homework. The results of this head-scratching were published in Nature Futures, Interzone, Postscripts, Daily Science Fiction and Music for Another World, to name but a few. Translations of his stories have appeared in Polish and Hebrew.

In January 2012 Vaughan became a full-time writer. Currently he's busy writing a hard SF novel (hard in both meanings of the word). The head-scratching has got worse if anything. There are also some new stories in the works, plus further e-book compilations of his previously published stories to come.
