Anomaly by Michael Gilwood

Michael Gilwood (1)

Michael Gilwood is the Pen name for Stephen Woodward. Michael’s writing career began at the age of nine; writing children’s columns in the local Kentish newspaper. At seventeen, he started to write short stories and poems. After reading hundreds of books, he blamed his nearness to writing to the overly imaginative works of Verne, not because it was his first, it was he who could deliver his then childish mind, making him wonder how someone could vividly paint an invisible image inside his head. He was fascinated by the power of literature. Since then he enjoyed writing, enjoying the pleasure it brought to others. He found it a way to escape from the real world, inserting himself within his own. His other works include: DOK. Both books are available on Amazon.

“My name is Philip. This is Alana and Ramaan. We are scientists. We have come here to gather information about this planet, its life-forms and cultures, its riches and composition and then we will move on to the next planet in this system we call Phot. We come from Earth, the third planet of a G7 star in the centauri region.”

“We know why you have come. Here, you’ll need a flask of Amostalina for your woman.” Shar gave them a small phial of white liquid for Lexia and smiled.

“Almost twenty-thousand of your years ago, we lived in peace in your solar system on the planet you call Mars. Everything was perfect. Everything was as it should have been until the war between the Gorinos, or the dark ones and us, began. At the same time, a terrible disease struck Mars. It drifted quietly and almost destroyed us. As a result, we separated and fled to different parts of the galaxy to escape the impending doom that encircled us. We have our Platnios outside to warn us of intruders. It was them who told us of your arrival.”

“Those plant creatures, you call them Platnios?” Philip’s confidence suddenly came back with a rush. He felt at ease. Shar sensed it, and smiled again.

“They are territorial; if you don’t provoke them, they won’t hurt you.” Ramaan felt an urge to roll up his sleeve and show Shar his arm.

“They are genetically made to serve and obey us?” He moved forward and gave them a book written in their language. Philip was sure his gift would help Lexia with her translations. Ramaan meanwhile was taking photographs of interest and sending the results to Sentrywatcher.

“How is it that you are familiar with the English Language?” asked Philip.

“It is our second language and the mother tongue of our descendants. Come, I will show you and your crew our hangar and what we are doing here.”
