TWA #14 – Cthulhu in Space Battle Thread!

“The Incident in the Delta Quadrant” by Joseph Devon


“Above” by David Webb


Cthulhu in SpaceWelcome short story lovers!

In the depths of space there are dark things far beyond human comprehension. Old Gods, insane Gods, and of course, a healthy dose of tentacles.

This week we force our competitors to the brink of madness as we challenge them to write a Cthulhu in Space story.

Joseph Devon finds the thing that should not be with “The Incident in the Delta Quadrant.”

Our challenger this week is David Webb, who drops in with “Above.”

Battle #13 is live!

Read! Vote! Comment! Enjoy!

We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below or on the story itself. Authors aren’t allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday.
