A Close Encounter of the Fourth and a Half Kind
It seems my first assignment as a commander of the human research team will be successful. According to the manual, our ship approached a solitary target and stealthily beamed it on the board.
But I am not so sure.
Does correct progress of task really include a part wherein after we load up an Earthman into our flying saucer he takes his gun, aims at the pilot, and shouts: "This is a hijack. Set course to Rigel 6!“?
"Things just happen. What the hell."

Welcome to my world. For the longest time I couldn’t think of right name for this place, so I left it without one. Amongst things you can find here are attempts of science fiction and fantasy stories, my collection of gods, bogeymen and monsters and also articles about things that had me interested, be it for a while or for years. (There is more of this, sadly not in English but in Czech, on www.fext.cz)
