April’s stories are available now!

April Stories Pic

Hello,

It’s April, the month that always begins with an innocent little prank, like cellophane over the toilet bowl, a cup of flour balanced on the top of a door, or maybe a little jump scare. In light of this we’ve got stories that involve a prank or two. The difference is these pranks won’t go exactly as planned. Enjoy! 🙂

The Misadventurers – Ian Williams

While aboard a human starship tasked with holding negotiations between two rival alien races, a pair of young brothers decide to play an innocent prank on one of the visitors.
