#7 at Amazon SMALL

Beam down to Soviet author Ruben Varda’s lauded sci-fi story of a celestial science class, presented at the Second Life Sunday Drum Circle:

Ruben’s story is one of the many delightful tales from the anthology Voice from the Planet. Voted Book of the Month’ by UK reviewer The Truth about Books, Voice from the Planet.

Award-winning and new authors from Congo to Hollywood join forces in Harvard Square Editions’ second volume of Living Fiction, and they are donating the net proceeds from the sale of this book to the Nobel Prize-winning charity Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

“Spanning continents and cultures, Voice From the Planet taps into an unacknowledged psyche – our literary world. An incongruous, gorgeous, eclectic mêlée that will open your eyes and mind to the huge potential amongst international authors….Our favourite was “Consultation” by Ruben Varda the philosophising Armenian. Clever, witty and intrinsically thought-provoking, we think Ruben has a talent that ought to enable him to give up helping the EU with nanoelectronics.”

— The Truth about Books

“ Planet is designed to be a conversation as well as a collection of short stories. Love the story, or disagree with something? Drop the author a note . . . The authors’ varied nationalities marks a new era in fiction.”

— ASU News

This collection of extraordinary voices will transport you on a globe-trotting adventure from the trauma of African earthquake to a lush glimpse of love in the jungles of Peru as you break through to war-torn Congo, to American rebellion of the 1960s, to fire dancing in the mountains of Bulgaria, to high finance on 9/11. The unexpected wit and intelligence in this volume enthralling.

The second in a series of anthologies of Living Fiction edited by Harvard alumni, Voice from the Planet is generative: it opens a forum where readers and Planet authors can engage in cyberliterary dialogue via the Internet.
