ALIEN FRINGE

 Author:
George LoBuono

I have a confession to make: I am an alien. I was born in Athens, Greece when my mother and father were stationed over there, about thirty-nine years ago. To paraphrase Robert Heinlein, "they were strangers in a strange land."

In Alien Fringe, LoBuono's stories, the characters are angry, disenfranchised, humorous, heroic, paranoid, and tragic. We see their worlds as a working-class universe, from tree planters in Clearcuts, to struggling artists searching for adventure in Indonesia in Nobodies, to homeless people looking for a little nourishment in A Memory of Small Mercies.

LoBuono observes his characters from an odd-angle lens: whether they are aliens from another world or men and women who are simply alienated from society. It's a refreshing journey to visit with these people. Their dreams, triumphs, and struggles against the status quo that constantly collide with their universe. Yet, most of them survive.

In For the Love of Ami we see a love story from a distance. A simple gesture or a smile becomes a danger in a world, where misunderstandings lead to disaster. It's a sad reminder but the smile remains as a measure of the only love a person can offer.

After reading George LoBuono's Alien Fringe, you'll gain a new perspective of the universe. People are not as different as they seem to be, whether from Florida, the Pacific Northwest, Indonesia or the Martian Sea, now living in Los Angeles. We're all part of this body eclectic called earth.

~ Joel L. Young, Author & Poet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This collection of mainstream, philosophical stories and poems is imaginatively done. If you're looking for a well-written non-genre book, by all means try Alien Fringe. The stories will stay in your mind long after you finish reading them.

~ Jane Toombs, Mainstream Fiction Reviews

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alien Fringe by G. LoBuono is a highly entertaining collection of fiction. For the Fiction collector, Alien Fringe is a must. On those dreary days when you want to curl up in front of the fire and read, you'll be able to pull down one of your favorites. Escape reality and imagine the world as it could be, one unbelievable challenge after another.
