Apocalyptic and Post-apocalyptic,
Hard Science Fiction
Elliot and David both had their lives changed by encounters with Extraterrestrial life as children. While most have seen or heard of their tales, it is not the end of their strange adventures. Their stories continue as they traverse the realms of possibilities beyond imagination.

What follows is a complete, fresh-look translation of the thirty-one poems of this set.
