The Man In Terminal C: A Short Story

By B.P. Shea

Sci-Fi, Short stories | eBook


In 2445 A.D., bald heads and cloned limbs are the height of fashion among the people of Earth. Bald heads turn, understandably, when a mustachioed man in a bowler hat enters Terminal C of Earth's Interstellar Transit Station. He walks among the crowd, hoping not to be noticed, waiting to board his shuttle and return to his mysterious home in the stars. He has made it this far with his secrets intact. But an ailing girl named Molly might just change his plans. She is the most delightful little Earthling he has yet encountered, and he might be able to help her. But helping his new friend could reveal his identity to his peril, as well as set Earth on a course of tumult and even danger. Does a single act of kindness outweigh the needs of an entire planet? Among the crowds of busy travelers, only The Man In Terminal C can decide.



B.P. Shea writes stories for people who wonder what’s up there. His stories of first contact and adventures in the stars explore how contact impacts not only mankind, but the aliens who also thought they were alone in the universe. What aliens might think of us, and each other, offers as much wonder and adventure for today's readers as more common tales of humans fighting alien invaders. Drawing on his years in Asia, Australia, and the United States, B.P. Shea’s novels and short stories focus on how environment shapes cultures and what happens when those cultures meet on Earth and in the far reaches of space. From the thrilling twists and turns of The Sky People trilogy to the experience of first contact through the eyes of a Taiwanese monk in the forthcoming Moon Of The Buddha, B.P. Shea writes tales of thrilling strangeness for all fans of science fiction. B.P. Shea is also the author of The Tea Fellowship: Thirty Years and the Halloween Hike, which chronicles his annual pilgrimage to the White Mountains of New Hampshire with his childhood friends, where they camp, hike, and reflect on a lifetime of friendship. B.P. Shea’s non-fiction works also include the forthcoming Taipei for Dinner: A Guide To The Bastard Child of Asian Dining. To find out more, visit www.authorbpshea.com.
