American Galactic

American Galactic

American Galactic explores the sci-fi realm of Martians, crop circles, abductions, and how humans face an extraterrestrial invasion: "I don't know/ what I'd do if Martians arrived at my door." From pop culture films like Planet of the __________, to comic book icons like Poison Ivy, to the larger literary imaginary of the red planet's inhabitants, American Galactic charts the intergalactic tale right here at home. Find out about "The Left Boob of Largeness." Learn "What do Martians Want." Understand "Why not to Buy Martians Sundaes Topped with Cherries." And ultimately enjoy these "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" in this bold new book of sci-fi poetry.

The Martians have landed in American Galactic, and the more Wiseman reveals about those little green aliens and their odd habits, the more we learn about our own human nature.
