Description:

As we spiral into the twenty-first century, the foundations of Western civilization are consumed, corpse-like, by fragments, decay, wind and water. By the next century, one blue alien may stand on the shores of Earth holding a skull in the wreck we’ve made of this once beautiful planet and say, “I knew them once. A fair race, a proud race.” What energy and foul nesting instinct consumes us and causes us to ruin our own home while over-populating it? Human passions and failures are the stuff of literature, the grist of good writing and none is more captivating than this monumental failure of civilization. Such is the fabric of this collection.
