INVASION of the VOX LAGOMORPHA
By F. Fidelio
When aliens land in the North of England they decline to enslave, infect, pupate in, or enrol people in a galactic federation. Instead, they ally themselves with the most social, most vulnerable entities living among us: rabbits. Humanity’s survival rests on their witness – this, the most abused, most misunderstood pet. Can we hope for mercy, or expect revenge?
Close Encounters of a Fluffy Kind
