Tales of Tark: Alien Women


I've been writing a longer sci-fi series about Tark, a sort of rogueish space pirate/scientist/musician. I recently wrote some one hundred word stories for a short story site, and this one got published!

Tales of Tark: Alien Women

Tark hadn’t been with a woman in over a year , and when the alien princess suggested a quick trip to his cabin, he couldn’t refuse. Of course she was an amorphous blob with a basketball-sized nucleus, with Freon for blood that rendered her skin colder than space, the leader of a religious fundamentalist space cult of human-eaters, but still. Any port in a storm, a pirate says!

The ice cold sex was fine, the religious ranting was OK, even her slippery sub-surface didn’t put him off. What finally sent him running…was the clinginess. Women.
