Disturbingly on-the-nose, NYT bestseller Dan Abnett has crafted a stunning SF parable that’s part Alien Nation and part today’s headlines! Arizona houses thousands of aliens hoping to visit earth with only heavily-armed immigration cops keeping things in check. From extra-terrestrial ambassadors with diplomatic immunity, to right-wing xenophobic militants and alien freeloaders disguised as luggage, Grey Area is prime 2000 AD – prescient and action-packed.
North America, 2045. The Global Exo Segregation Zone (aka the “Grey Area”) is a huge holding area in Arizona housing all manner of aliens hoping to visit earth: a melting pot for alien disputes, crime and inter-species misunderstandings! The only thing standing in the way of chaos is the Exo Transfer Control squads: heavily-armed immigration cops that keep the peace and make sure everyone has their papers in order. From contemptuous extra-terrestrial ambassadors with diplomatic immunity, to right-wing xenophobic militants and alien freeloaders disguised as luggage: new recruit Jana Birdy discovers that life in the E.T.C. might be the most interesting job on Earth – and the most dangerous!
