Waiting in The Sky by Keith A Pearson

Publication Date 12 August 2021

It's hard to fit in where you don't belong ... particularly if you belong on a planet 2,500,000 light-years away.

Despite living on Earth for almost thirty years, Simon Armstrong knows he is not of our world.

Still, with his interplanetary mission almost over, he’ll soon be saying goodbye to a life he’s struggled to navigate and the humans he doesn’t much like. The only creature he’ll likely miss will be Merle, the antisocial cat he shares his home with.

Simon does, however, have a minor problem — he has no idea how They will orchestrate his extraction from our planet. With the threads of his earthly existence unravelling by the day, all he can do is wait patiently for a sign.
