A Short Story Collection

What will our world look like in a hundred years?

The future, ghosts, aliens, surprising twists, murder, love and beyond... 

nightly visitor isn't all that she seems. A woman's life draws strange parallels with a space probe. A man wakes up in a black void, with no recollection of how he got there.

These are just a few of the stories in Beyond. Some explore life beyond death. Others were inspired by questions of existence beyond earth. Some just centre on human emotions and experiences which are 'beyond' normal.


"This is a little well-written book of exceptional variety. A book you can dip into again and again, just for a few moments at a time!" - The Voice of Literature

"Even the shortest of these stories made me think, or wonder, or to be honest, scared me a little bit in the best way possible." - Amazon Review

About Alanah Andrews

Alanah Andrews is an English teacher, mother and writer in Australia. She spent her younger years growing up in New Zealand where she thought it was normal to have a steaming mud pool and a boiling lake in her backyard. Primarily writing speculative fiction, she has won several awards for her short stories which have been published in a range of anthologies. A science fiction nerd, her most exciting experience so far was when one of her stories was read aloud at a literary festival by an actor from Stargate.

Alanah specialised in creative writing at Monash University where she studied a BA in Professional Communication. She also has a Master of Teaching and loves being able to foster a love of reading in her students. She has published a collection of short stories titled ‘Beyond,’ and has also written a Young Adult Dystopian novel called ‘Eve of Eridu.’
