Note! We are no longer taking orders at this site. All our books are available from major online retailers. We are developing an author and reader community site, and will soon be replacing this site with another one to showcase our titles and authors. Thanks very much for your interest!

Sure, we're all made of starstuff. But some forms of space dust are, well, absurd. When the not-so-next door neighbors turn out to be too distasteful to contemplate, there's only one solution: pretend no one's home.

"They're Made Out of Meat" is included in Terry Bisson's quirky and brilliant collection, Bears Discover Fire and Other Stories.
