Secret Invasion!!! - The Dial and Other Stories, by Chris Reynolds

They're already here. In fact, they've been here since you were a child. What, you don't remember? Go have a look at your old photograph album -- see those unfamiliar figures in the background? Have they always been there, teaching you, getting you ready for a new world, a world with a different religion?

I know what you're thinking, but wait -- something even stranger is going on here. This isn't some grand sci-fi conspiracy. Or if it is, it doesn't feel that way. It feels more like a weird dream, with little bits of understanding peaking in through the slim cracks in the darkness. Everything always looks static, undisturbed, but somethings broken, somethings wrong at home, something's wrong with her. Time keeps on slipping, and similar looking scenes can hold terrible differences if you catch them in the right light.

When are you going to come home?

When are you really going to come home?

A bit late (years!) for me to mention it, David, but thanks for the review!
