Come Take Me: A Celestial Satire
E. M. Skyler, author
The time is now (almost), and some Americans have decided that Canada is not quite far enough from their roiling homeland. For them there is ComeTakeMe.com, a website where people advertise to get taken by aliens. Will anyone succeed? How about Marshall M. Shmishkiss, a starry-eyed optimist determined to become his world’s most eligible abductee? Marshall trains his body. He trains his mind. He tries to prepare for every challenge that might await a lone human on a ship of galactic explorers. And soon he will face a choice. Either make one final, Faustian attempt at leaving his planet... Or get used to down-to-earth drudgery and the death of his dreams.
