about

RESISTANCE IS ALL For years, writers and filmmakers have speculated about the possibility of the Earth being invaded by aliens from another planet. But what if the aliens have been watching us, infiltrating us via human collaborators, or even surgically altering themselves to look human? Occupied Earth is a groundbreaking anthology that explores the idea of what the world would look like years after its conquest. 20 years after a successful invasion by the Makh-Ra, humanity still exists, only it has become subservient to a race of occupiers who govern the devastated planet. But, as much at things continue with some sense of normalcy, something has happened in the Mahk-Ra's empire. Earth, once considered a strategic beachhead of major importance to the Empire, has been downgraded in its value. Things are starting to degrade. Our planet is the last place any self-respecting Mahk-Ra officer wants to be assigned. Yet, despite everything, life continues.These stories bring us face to face with annihilation - and show how we can pull ourselves back from the brink. Featuring Rachel Howzell Hall, Lisa Morton, Matthew V. Clemens, Howard Hendrix, Nathan Walpow and more, OCCUPIED EARTH is coming. Stay safe. Stay strong. Survive at all costs.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for OCCUPIED EARTH 'Alien occupation has never been so dark and sexy.Occupied Earth isThe Fifth Wave meetsRobopocalypse, in the best way possible.' -Michelle Gagnon, author of the PERSEFONE series Plenty of applicable social commentary. We get to read tales of heroes and martyrs, as well as traitors and collaborators, although the lines are often blurred. A fantastic collection of short stories that deliver in a cohesive narrative. Highly recommended." -SF Reader "The narrative universe feels cohesive and genuine, making it easy to invest yourself in the champions and villains alike.Occupied Earth is collaborative sci-fi done right." -Manhattan Book Review "Clearly, these writers know what they're doing. The stories range from brutal and R-rated to straight-up sci-fi action. One neat thing about the book as a complete entity is the presence of hope. It's not dystopia and misery. The oppressed plan to rebel. The good guys aim to fight. That's good stuff." -RevolutionSF "A unique and impressive anthology that deserves to be brought to the attention of science fiction fans everywhere... a terrifically entertaining read with deftly crafted short stories that will linger in the mind and memory long after this outstanding anthology is finished and set back upon the shelf. Very highly recommended." -Midwest Book Review "Fans of 'alien invasion' sci-fi, near-future dystopia, post-apoc (though this isn't strictly that), and good old classic science-fiction will find much to engage in this diverse yet unified collection of quality sci-fi stories." -The Blood-Shed "
