Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Robert N. Stephenson
Robert wears several hats as an author, literary agent, publisher, editor, and professional writing tutor. He has published voluminously, including a novel, in Poland, and three other books, in Australia. He also manages a website devoted to the craft of writing.
“The Takers” is set on an Earth occupied by vampiric space aliens. While they have put an end to human procreation, they have also ended human mortality. Even so, one has to wonder whether the aliens’ supply of nutrients isn’t ultimately doomed; they don’t seem to have taken into account attrition from accidents and disease. But the center of the story is the narrator’s preganancy and her determination to keep her child. To that end she is helped by her husband, John, and a sympathetic alien, Delaware.
