Earth is Upside Down (and 12 Other Things You Would Know About This Planet If You Didn't Live On It)
An alien diplomat reveals thirteen astonishing facts about Earth and its place in the greater human community, including why Earth is upside down, why time doesn't exist, why you can travel faster than light but probably shouldn't, how men and women came to be a single species, what will happen if Earth does not clean up its act, and answers to other things you never suspected were questions.

The first in a series of booklets published by the only extra-terrestrial consulate on planet Earth, this slender volume is a genre mash-up of science fiction, humor, and informative nonfiction. In thirteen short, witty, and saucy essays, Ambassador Thwendlulla Tlatnet-Tholfth IX introduces himself, his mission, and the Greater Human Community to the people of Earth. Learn the astonishing truth about why Earth is upside down, why you have less time and weigh more on Earth than you should, why there are genders, why men have nipples, why time doesn't exist, how it is possible to travel faster than light, why each of us has six identical twins living somewhere on the planet, what happens if you teleport too much, why Earth is under Full Diplomatic Quarantine, how properly to pronounce Ambassador Tlatnet-Tholfth's name, and other answers to things you never dreamed were questions.
"I have put together this little booklet as a way of introducing myself, the Consortium of Human Worlds, and the Greater Human Community generally. What better way to bring the Consortium and Earth together than by showing you some of the ways we look at your planet differently from you? It is my sincere hope that this little book may be but the beginning of a conversation and a friendship as vast as the starry night itself. All proceeds from sales go to support the Earth Consulate (Virtual) of the Consortium of Human Worlds."
