THERE BE MONSTERS!!!
We are constantly bombarded with tales of plants and animals that are teetering on the brink of extinction, but we are also constantly finding threatening new species. There are news reports of antibiotic resistant bacteria and drug resistant viruses, often conjured in the laboratories of villains. I was recently told of a 40 foot shark that lives deep in the ocean. It snacks on whales and dates back to the age of dinosaurs. Of course some of these are Internet rumors. Some are imagination gone wild. But— what if?
It’s fun to speculate, for the sake of science fiction, about unknown species that are dangerous to our existence. For this week’s writing prompt write a story describing one of these unknowns species and the horrific results of its existence.
Sleep well my friends.
