I just finished writing the fourth entry into my short story collection called 60 Pages.
I like this story and definitely felt like this could have easily been a novel. I even left the end of the story open for that purpose.
Here is a summary I wrote for it…
An alien fleet discovers that Earth has unlocked the powers of magic. In a universe still reeling from a previous conflict the goals are clear.
This new threat must be neutralized.
With help from an unlikely source, the humans prepare for the battle of their lives as they defend their world and their way of life from a threat light years more technically advanced than they are.
In the end, the only real question is who will win? Will the aliens save the galaxy from the new magical threat or will humanity survive to fight another day?
