Mysterious winged men visit two cities. Julie Rumley, a scientist specializing in birds, is about to learn they aren't a faux, and much more.
This is a very short story, so it's hard to talk much about it without giving it away. My best suggestion is to go and read it yourself. You won't regret it.
The description of the book states it is "a short story meant to activate your imagination." And it does a great job. Mostly, it spurs me to want to know more. If I had one wish, it would be that this story be expanded into a full length novel because now that I had a short sample, I definitely want more.
Something this story lead me to think about is what kind of reception humans would give to unusual visitors. I thought the reactions for the three encounters seemed very true, and that isn't necessarily very good. Personally, I would hope my reaction would be similar to the third visit. What would your reaction be?
