Susie Louise McGonagle, the heroine of Malcolm J. Brenner’s new novel Mel-Khyor: An Interstellar Affair, is an ordinary woman leading a humdrum existence until something extraordinary happens: a spaceship crashes in her back yard (or does it?) and she falls in love with the surviving humanoid alien, who coincidentally happens to be named after a character from Medieval folklore.  Seventeen years later, Susie’s second husband, a reporter, tries to figure out if this unbelievable story is proof of alien life, or the fantasies of a bored and desperate woman who was trapped at the time in a loveless marriage to her first husband, a philandering jerk.

Four timelines are woven together into one seamless and entertaining narrative that carries the reader from 1978 to 2004, from the mountains of Colorado to the rings of Saturn and beyond.
