Moondust Memories brings together eleven of Vaughan Stanger's personal favourites from his published science fiction. Ten of these short stories have previously appeared in Kindle editions, while the eleventh is the seed for his novel-in-progress.
Stories included in this collection:
- Moon Flu
- Slices of Life
- Touching Distance
- The English Dead
- Stars in Her Eyes
- String-driven Thing
- First and Third
- The Eye Patch Protocol
- Star in a Glass
- Dark, They Were, and Strange Inside
- Survival Strategies (new to Kindle)
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.
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.
