Armageddon Dawn



The ruin of the planet Earth began with the city Washington. The sleek shapes of enemy aircraft seemed to come from nowhere and go back there just as quickly. They would scream in blasting at everything that moved and anything that didnít. They would never run out of ammunition and one in ten would fly into a random immobile object and even that did not seem to matter to the swarm or have any effect on their numbers.


The world over, from Cairo to Sydney to New York, jet fighters would appear, strike with lethal intent, and disappear, those that didnít crash. The world was dissolving and not a soul knew why or how. These strange machines knew exactly where, how, and when to strike at the very core of humanity, and as a result the entire world was turning to rubble.
* * *


In another world, linked but separate to ours, two children sat entranced by an electronic game.


"This is fun!" Squeaked the younger of the two, and proceeded to destroy humanity.

2 cents worth
I hope you plan to expand this further because although the style is easy to read and understand, you've left us poor readers hanging without an ending. Still it was an enjoyable short read. At the very least try to post longer sci-fi stories on your own web site. They're actually free, you know. If a worthless sci-fi writer can have one - I know you can. Mine doesn't cost anything. Who knows you might get lucky and get noticed for your talent someday. Good luck with your efforts. Look forward to reading your work again. George Harwood.

I Liked It
I liked the whole thing about that every video game WE might play could have the same effect. While it was short..very very short..it had an eerie essence to it. Well done..
