Happy New Year from everyone at clonepod.  Today we are releasing the promised Flash Fiction piece that we had intended to release for Christmas before we knew we could run the wonderful steampunk story, Cold Duty for Christmas.  

The author of today’s story, Jonathan Lowe, has a website that includes interviews and reviews of audio books.  We recommend checking his work out at

 I was in the air en route to Jamaica once when the guy next to me said:  “We aliens like to fly first class.”
         I looked at him, closely.  He winked.  Twice.  On the second wink I spewed the gin and tonic I’d been sipping all over him.  Luckily, the old folks sitting across from us were asleep, precluding embarrassment.  Although I did have a good excuse for it.  After all, the guy doing the winking had two eyelids, the second resembling an icky green jelly-like membrane.  Other than this rather minor oversight he could have passed for any insurance salesman.

    I wonder if maybe this is already happening, It might explain why the oceans aren’t rising even though the glaciers are melting! Cool.

    Pretty amusing…
    Except the decibel scale is logarithmic. A supernova is only 470 db; 600 db would be every single star in agalaxy going supernova. 800 would be… impressive.
    And we think that salmon expend a lot of energy swimming upstream to mate. ;-)
