Flash Fiction #2: Launch

This week's story is another 100 word drabble:


Launch
By Gareth D Jones

This story is now forthcoming from Flashshots.


I got the inspiration for this from Bob Shaw's The Ragged Astronauts and Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers. This is slightly more daft than either of them though.

Neat idea. I like.

What an image - hocked into space in a giant ball of phlegm!

Atchoo!

That's what I like about flash fiction; you can use all those ideas that probably couldn't sustain a full length story.

Thanks for all your comments.
