Phases of an Alien Moon

23 August 2001

"very interesting history of the prejudices in aviation against women - which doubtless were inherited by NASA. There was a series of accidents in the 1920's involving menstruating women pilots - things like the wings of the plane coming off."  

-Footnote to interview with Constance Penley 

Yes, the curse of menstruation has always attracted killer Gremlins! And, what's more, that's also what actually happened to Challenger. But watch out, Alien BEMs! Ripley's gone PMS...

'Buckaroo Banzai and the Isolinguals'. 
Aaron Agassi, (617) 628-2339 
15 April 2002

L. Sprague de Camp's first published work: 'Isolinguals', Astounding, September 1937 later anthologized by Damon Knight in FIRST FLIGHT : MAIDEN VOYAGES IN SPACE AND TIME. Lancer, PB, in 1963, would be ideal for adaptation into a Buckaroo Banzai Adventure, 'Buckaroo Banzai and the Isolinguals'.

Buckaroo Banzai, of course, is a latter day pulp fiction crime fighter and super scientist who was played by Peter Weller.

Chaos reigns as, one by one, the population of the city revert to identities from ancestral memory.

'Commandments of Time' - Bible Epic/Science Fiction
Aaron Agassi, (617) 628-2339
From a suggestion by Dr. Peter Choras
                         August 10 2003

Was God a time traveler? And did He intervene in history? Moses, like unto Sisyphus, climbs the mountain again and again, bringing down variant Tablets of the Law and smashing them again in frustration. For at the foot of the mountain, he is always greeted by generations of his descendants, relating to their revered Patriarch what has/will come to pass from each variant set of commandments in turn.
With his last breath, Moses hands down the final Tablets of the Law fit for the true liberation from bondage, of justice, clarity and flexibility, sanguine that by God's will he has finally gotten it right. But then the High Priests rejecting it all as too complicated and unsuitable for keeping much needed order, instead just dash off a quick rewrite of the Code of Hammurabi, the familiar commandments we know. And the rest, sadly, is history.

Political Satire/ reality TV/ campaign proposal, truth-in-jest

But once the case is solved...
