Synopsis

In Franklin County, when times get tough, people often to turn to bootlegging. But that's a perilous way to make a living, since bootlegging is both illegal and tightly regulated by distributors like Dennis DeSpain. So when the mysterious and scary alien who calls himself "Turk" openly sets up as an independent operator, flouting both the law and the distributors, all hell breaks loose. In it up to their necks and pursuing their own agendas are: ex-activist Lilly, the alien's lawyer; Berenice, an aging '60s radical with a past; Orris, DeSpain's smart, ambitious wife who believes in doing whatever it takes to achieve the objective; and DeSpain's ex-lover Marie, a chemical-engineering student who loves working with machines and whose grandmother was a midwife, bootlegger in the Forties, and notorious for having killed a man.

This novella originally appeared in the collection Alien Bootlegger and Other Stories (1993). It can also be found in the anthology The Year's Best Science Fiction: Eleventh Annual Collection (1994), edited by Gardner Dozois.
