Experience The Prometheus Saga



An alien probe landed on Earth at the dawn of man. It can change its appearance, from male to female, to any race. The home planet is watching through the probe's eyes. The probe observes us, and sometimes it acts.

How the alien probe interacts with humanity throughout history is interpreted differently in each of the thirteen short stories by the award-winning authors of the Alvarium Experiment.

  1. I've read three stories so far and enjoy the different genres and perspectives. This isn't a gradual progression of the alien landing on earth and advancing with each incarnation. It's a startling variety of impressions, all from human authors, showcasing the way we are unique even though we're all human.

    1. Carol, you've nailed it. Thanks so much for your willingness to review each story.
