Interplanetary Homesick Blues

They couldn’t save their own planet. Can they be trusted to save ours?


‘Interplanetary Homesick Blues’ takes place ten years after Earth was almost overwhelmed by a massive influx of displaced alien species, all seeking a new home following an interstellar calamity on the far side of the galaxy.


The Earth authorities moved most of the newcomers to massive refugee camps. Some arrivals, however, entered the planet illegally—smuggled in by alien gangs—and live out their lives in secret amongst the humans.


Cal is one such illegal alien. His glittering career in law enforcement a distant memory, he now spends his days trapped in a twilight existence acting as an enforcer within his underground community.
