Little Green Men – Another New Short Story!

Ever written something that made you laugh out loud at the imaginary setting in your own mind? Well, last night that happened to me!

I started writing a short story – and for once it was a SHORT story. ‘Little Green Men’ is 5 pages A4 and 1341 words long, and it’s the shortest one I’ve done so far – and yesterday morning I put the finishing touches to what is the longest short story I’ve ever written. ‘Space Vacation’ (41 pages A4 and 14,079 words long). Together, these stories represent the two extremes in my short story writing, and the fun I have while writing, and my passion for it!

Below, another illustration based on “Little Green Men”:

You can find “Little Green Men” in “Space Sucks Too!

(Update: “Space Vacation” was extended and as of 2018 forms part of “Life Signs“, book 2 in Panic! Horror In Space series by Christina Engela as “Lange’s Legacy”.)

I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
