Brian Yansky didn t plan on writing a sequel to Alien Invasion and Other Inconveniences, but a few months after he finished the book, he started feeling that there was more to tell. A lot of my readers seemed to agree, he says. They wrote asking, When s the next one coming out? and Is this the first in a trilogy? The answers? Now! and Nope. Homicidal Aliens and Other Disappointments finishes the story. So, apparently, I ve written a duology. There aren t a lot of duologies out there. I have nothing against trilogies or longer series, but the power of two has been ignored for too long. Will duologies become the next big thing? Will other writers decide that three is just too many and one not enough? Um . . . probably not. But I thank you for reading my Aliens duology. Hope you like it.
