Science Fiction Short Stories
Pareidolia is our tendency to give names to strange unidentifiable shapes in our universe and discern order from the chaos.
J.P. Osterman has created an anthology of her uncanny short stories dealing with space travel, otherworldly dimensions and communications across the universe. J.P. is known for her accurate research supporting her stories and has a broad range of voice and power. When added to her signature use of emotions and profoundly eloquent verse, we see the reason for her ability to craft wide-ranging sci-fi stories equal to any contemporary writer today.
J.P.'s collection twists and turns between closely real and the refreshing worlds she creates, with a perfect balance of imagination and down to earth humanity. The stories will grab you and immediately yank you in whether it's around the corner or across the universe. Her fictional worlds remain our world. It's the resilience of her characters and their enveloping stories that leave you wanting more.
