Read “The Dying Drones” at Ray Gun Revival

If you’re a fan of X Minus One, Galaxy Magazine or any golden or silver age science fiction, you will love Ray Gun Revival. It’s an online magazine dedicated to bringing back the science fiction of yesteryear, and it’s current issue features my short story, “The Dying Drones.”

I remember watching Twilight Zone episodes spinning stories about humankind’s first, furtive steps into outer space–episodes like “Where is Everybody?,” “And When the Sky Was Opened,” and “The Parallel,” each guessing what kind of bizarre, unthought-of dangers were waiting for us beyond the exosphere.

Now that we’ve not only been to space, but lived there and visited the moon, we have a tendency to view those episodes and their fears as quaint, but the theme is current. It will always be current and, at the risk of punning, universal. We still really don’t know anything about what’s out there, Hubble Space telescope or no.

The Dying Drones” lays a new danger at our feet, suggesting that even the anti-social need company in space. For reasons we never even realized.
