In my science-fiction novel series entitled Apocalypse Babes, a stylish group of twenty-something friends are torn from the Babylonian arms of 2006 West Hollywood and flung nearly thirty years into the past. It might be because one of them purchased the taboo film in a nostalgic moment, setting off a chain of events more disturbing than a roller skating conga line. They wake up in an apocalyptic—but strangely familiar—landscape, complete with a hidden mountain compound and retro survivalists, hinting at hidden and retro issues they must face if they want to survive.

Of course, the Japanese could be behind the new synthetic. I hear there's a growing market in Bon Temps, Louisiana.

I love this scientific conclusion by Annalee Newitz about this story from from io9:
Mystery object orbiting distant star baffles astronomers

"I think we all know what's going on here. It's a hollowed-out planet that an advanced civilization uses as a spacecraft, which fell into orbit around the star after vacuum vampires slaughtered the crew. It's the most obvious explanation."

Works for me.
