The Visit, a Science Fiction story | SparkaTale


The Visit

By: The Dragonlord

Status: Completed


Now this novella requires some explanation. This story, the first of a trilogy, was inspired by the reports of two policemen (in England) chasing a glowing sphere in their car through the countryside one night. (It's even on YouTube). There have been similar reports in other countries as well, of course. It made me wonder, (if it was true and they weren't both dreaming or under-the-influence) where such a sphere might have come from and why. And that led to an extrapolation of what might happen if it had landed......and that, in turn, led to a second part, and my agent at the time suggested that if I turn it into a trilogy, it might get published. Unfortunately I began to run into trouble near the end of part two, and so I never did finish the third part. Also, you should bear in mind that this was written in 1969, at the height of the cold war,long before the days of mobile phones and other modern technology. And long before Spielberg's magnum opus;- Close Encounters. Interestingly, several aspects of the story have become true, but for different reasons than mine. You'll see what I mean. I am rather pleased that at 21 years old I inadvertently predicted what would prove to be true in 2012.
