An anthology of short stories.
The universe is an amazing place and there are stories from every corner, nebula, galaxy or cluster just waiting to be told. Tales From The Universe is a collection of six science fiction short stories that takes the reader on a fantastical journey from the Earth to the stars. From the fog filled streets of Victorian London where the frightening demonic creature, Spring Heeled Jack, is terrorising the city; to the far reaches of the universe and the life and times of an intergalactic assassin seeking redemption for his sins; and to Sammy Scarlatti whose close encounter holds the fate of billions of lives in his blood stained hands. Each thought provoking story opens the door to give you a glimpse of the inner workings of the universe.
Sammy panics. He begins to feel real fear. All the more so when he sees strange misshapen shapes within the light around the outside of his car. He tries to scream but he has no voice. He tries to fight but he has no movement. He tries to close his eyes but he can’t even blink. All he can do is to look on wide eyed as he is lifted by some invisible force up, out of the car and into the air towards the hovering disc shaped vehicle above.
The UFO is the last thing he sees before blacking out.
The world wasn’t enough for Sammy Scarlatti, it was too small, he always wanted more, a bigger slice of the pie, a larger piece of the action, never content with what he had; which wasn’t much to be sure. But now the fate of the entire world was about to rest in the hands of a killer and madman.
