About the Anthology
In July of 2019, author Terri A. Wilson contacted other authors with a simple idea. “I think it would be fun to create an Area 51 anthology and release it around the time of the big invasion. Maybe a charity anthology- all genres. Any interest?”
The idea caught fire among her writers community, with writers she knew sharing the idea with writers they knew. In the end, 47 authors of all different genres agreed to try their hardest to craft a story that honored Terri’s few stipulations.
- Stories didn’t have to include aliens, but they needed to incorporate Area 51
- Stories had to be professionally edited
- Stories had to be submitted on a tight deadline so they could be professionally assembled and formatted
- All proceeds from the book would go to the United States veterans foundation selected by the group. *Due to legal reasons we cannot directly name the foundation in any book marketing.
In the end, over twenty authors submitted stories to the anthology.
“I am so blown away by the response to this antho.” Wilson said. “The energy is overwhelming.”
Ebook and print versions will be available September 20, 2019 to coincide with the original date of Alienstock and Area 51 Bootcamp, the two major events planned for the Area 51 raid.
What’s in Area 51? Is the government hiding aliens? Elvis? Maybe the set of the Apollo moon landing? Do you know? We do. Join this multi-genre group as they explore the hidden recesses of Area 51 which up until now have only been whispered conspiracies. Don’t bother with the raid. Stay home, read these awesome stories and learn all you need to know. The truth is just a page-flip away.

An Area 51 short story
The Road to Eden by Beverly Ovalle
The civilization of Jannat Adn was slowly dying. Unable to procreate they searched the galaxy looking for compatible civilizations. They find one. It’s Earth. Not only are earthlings compatible, but gene markers show a common ancestor.
Pavolok is amazed at how different life on Earth is. Tasked with safely bringing aboard colonists, the Storm Area 51 Raid is the perfect opportunity to round them up. When the US Military tests a weapon on their own citizens, he steps in to save them. What he doesn’t expect is his body’s reaction to one of the human women. Her purple hair and violet eyes draw him instantly to her.
Amy joined the raid for the heck of it, along with her siblings. Naruto running and clapping cheeks appeals to her sense of humor. It’s not that she believes in aliens, just why miss the chance if they really are there? Transported to a space ship that really doesn’t live up to her expectations, she can’t seem to keep her hands off Pavolok.
Amy hadn’t planned on having an alien in her life, but once she clapped him, she’s not willing to give him up.
