Now here's something you don't see every day: a science fiction story by one of SOL's most gifted storytellers, Lubrican.
It should come as no surprise, though, that the hallmarks of Lubrican's work are still present in "The Soccer Mom Who Saved the Earth." It's well written and well plotted, with a pleasant pace, even as a ruthless alien race is planning the subjugation of the planet from its space ship's hiding place on the dark side of the moon. But how could the Blaxtog have known the intense powers of certain human hormones? This one is played primarily for fun.
Lest anyone think that Lubrican has skimped on the sex in this sci-fi tale, most of the humans at ground zero of the proposed invasion seem to think about little else but screwing, and while you wouldn't label this one a stroke piece, it's certainly titillating.
But, what's this? A Lubrican story in which no one, by story's end, has been confirmed as pregnant? Not to worry: the seeds, as they say, have been planted.
What a treasure!!
I really loved this nicely humourous tale of a thwarted alien invasion.
Plotting was cleverly worked out and the scenes were not overdone.
Take a look, you'll be glad you did :)
