Computers, the space shuttle, biogenetics, what was once the domain of science fiction is now business as usual. Developments in science and technology are propelling us forward so fast that only a few dare to speculate where we might be tomorrow. Even though ALIEN TONGUE is essentially about first contact with an alien race, it's also about the 'alien-ness' of the relationship between two people, and at the core, about language and how it shapes our perceptions. In fact, the Avia, my aliens, come directly from the question "What would a race be like if they had no word in their language for the concept of telling a deliberate untruth?"
