Dave Robinson finds that one of the joys of being a freelancer is that it lets him work from home most of the time. He also finds that one of the terrors of being a freelancer is that it lets him work from home most of the time. Home where he's comfortable; home, where the dog, cat and daughter feel it's always a good time to bug Daddy. Outside of writing he's done everything from counseling at a day camp, cleaning carpets, to managing a bookstore. Inside of writing, he's ghostwritten two novels and written two more of his own. These days he's more of an editor than a writer, but sometimes the itch still scratches. There's really not much more to say, other than that he's a reader as well as writer – he still collects comics and has read the entire decade of the fifties from Astounding, Galaxy, and If magazines. There is a universe of possibilities out there, and it's his hope that someday we'll get to see them.
Exile (The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar)
by Dave Robinson
Short story (1280 words) about an extraterrestrial being exiled to planet Earth with some interesting consequences for our space program. The tale is "Twilight Zone-esque" in both theme and writing style but captures some of the dysfunction of recent years in the space program. “Exile” is the fourth story in “The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar.”
