Joy’s SF books: The Doorway and Other Stories

The Doorway and Other Stories include fourteen of my favorite stories (reprints), and since my favorite genre is science fiction, they are mostly SF except for The Princess Quest, a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery epic, and Old Rex, a ghost story.  They’ve all been  published elsewhere, except for Royal Guardians; this is its first time in print.  If you like reading about aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home, family, their own bodies, etc., I think you’ll enjoy this collection of characters and their adventures.

Stories include symbiotes (Pilot’s Course), time tunnels (The Doorway), attacking aliens (Too Tight), friendly aliens (Freeps), mermaids (Well Met by Water), trading bodies (Stray Cats), royalty (Royal Guardians),and genetic engineering. The Doorway and Other Stories is available on Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2

All the stories have been published elsewhere–sometimes more than once–over the years, except for Royal Guardians.
