You dirty minds… I’ve got a new scifi short story (not an actual pair of shorts) that just hit the various e-book platforms. It was a little idea I had rolling around in my mind for several weeks, finally sat down one day (taking up a valuable table at Barnes & Noble for many hours) and put it to paper.
A young boy working on his village’s plantation watches as alien craft scream overhead. His first emotion is excitement… until the technologically superior aliens start shooting. He has no choice but to grow up quickly, becoming one of his village’s most trusted defenders.
Incursion is a short scifi story of a people defending themselves against an alien invasion, and shows what human nature may really mean. Approximately 3,200 words (13 printed pages).
I’ve got to go by e-book distributors’ minimum pricing rules and the story is out for $.99, so I also have this available for free download as PDF. Otherwise:
Would love to hear your feedback (and if you wanted to leave a few lines as an online review on the various e-book sites, I’d be forever in your debt…)
