Second Contact, and Other Stories cover

    Second Contact is a stylish presentation, the stories written with flair, imagination, and a perception of human relationships.
    Dave Price, The Third Alternative
    Subtle and sensitive ... There is a surprising depth of psychological insight in these intriguing tales. I enjoyed them immensely.
    Jeff Gardiner, The Alien Online

Gary Couzens is one of the foremost writers of slipstream fiction within the independent press, nudging the boundaries of genre conventions and deftly exploring the fringes of experience, creating nineteen startling stories which burrow deeply amidst our heartfelt fascinations and fears. Dissecting the relationships between time and identity, perception and misconception, longing and alienation, Couzens' often cinematic prose evokes realities just below the surface of common experience. For each story here there will be a connection with someone, somewhere.
