This collection of posts is about the Spaces not obviously visited in Notes from An Alien—glimpses into the depths of the book—character disclosures, about people already in the novel and those yet to be mentioned—revelations of events that happened in the Worlds of Angi but weren’t rendered in the published edition

Also, please ask me any questions you have about the book in the Comments of any of these posts :-)

Or, email me: amzolt {at} gmail {dot} com

I’ll let you know if individual posts have “spoilers“, for those who haven’t yet read the book—though, it’s not that long and could be read in just a few days (even though it is “deep”).

    This is funny, how you are speaking for an alien woman. It would probably make a cool movie…

      Thanks, Candace — Even “funnier” is that she’s a character in the story and my “co-author” :-)
