Fun Fact: All About Crabbygrass


Crabby-grass is a native plant-like animal form native to the planet Deanna, being essentially an animal which has developed remarkably plant-like characteristics. These characteristics enable crabbygrass to blend in remarkably well with ordinary grass and help it to all but disappear into wild grass and even urban lawns.

Crabby-grass has stalk and leaf-like appendages, and even grows seasonal flowers, by which it reproduces by means of wind or insect pollination, and sometimes, even by direct contact with its partners. The creatures generally resemble clumps of thick, green grass – making them appealing, unfortunately, to herbivorous creatures. The creature’s flowers develop into seed-pods, which can be made to rattle when the creature becomes angry and shakes them, usually as a warning. More

Fun Fact: Florpavian Flame Birds


Florpavian flame birds are a rare sight – at least anywhere other than on their home world Florpavia. For a while, several specimens were visible in the Atro City zoo on Deanna, shortly before the Exotic Birds Wing had to be rebuilt for the second time.

It has raw acetone for blood and walks around the surface of its home planet, Florpavia, eating raw chemicals and crapping crude plastic explosive everywhere it goes. Its breath is noxious and has been known to strip paint from nearby walls. It’s hiccups could be deadly, and its coughs are feared by even the hardiest and most athletic cargo-master or zoo-keeper. To say nothing of the um, flatulence. More

Panic! Horror In Space – A Voyage Of Terrifying Misadventure!


About “Panic! Horror In Space” by Christina Engela – a sci-fi-horror series.

Panic! Horror In Space‘ is a series of science-fiction-horror stories featuring regular characters, with the occasional introduction of new characters or settings. The premise of the concept was to create a horror-sci-fi story in a series of connected short fiction installments.

While on an otherwise routine deep-space mission to chart new territory on the frontier of unknown space, the Pioneer Fleet starship Mercury is probably the unluckiest ship in history. Not once, not twice, but many times over, the same hapless crew – give or take a few dozen casualties – on a supposed voyage of deep space exploration, stumble into the weird, wake the creepy and trip over the downright terrifying and possibly even supernatural… More

Art: The Completed Images!


Hello fans!

Earlier today I posted a preview of some illustrations I did based on some of my stories. I’d just took pictures of them with my phone, and promised to post the completed versions tonight after I’d scanned and colored them. 🙂 (I linked it above so you can open it and compare.) The black and white versions will also go into my coloring and activity book, but meanwhile, here are the completed colorized images.

Any guesses as to which stories they’re from yet? 😉
