Introducing The Falling
« on: March 12, 2010, 07:31:42 AM »
Hi All,

I'm a massive sci-fi fan and love writing the stuff.

Here is my new website

www.thefalling.co.uk

where I publish my free online sci-fi horror serial. "This website presents a free narrative that follows the lives of the people caught up in the Falling, a sci-fi happening of apocalyptical scale. The horror that has come to them from the skies twists their lives and they have to make a series of life threatening decisions if they intend on surviving in a changed world."

This is what I do.

Cheers

Dominic Constable

Chapter 4 has been published on thefalling.co.uk.
Vinnie Leach has made it to safety but looks out on a world torn apart. He can't rest though as he has to save a man from the terror in the skies only to find that this stranger brought into his home isn't alone.

Here's an excert....

""She followed him, there was no thought for anyone else in the house as they lived alone. Vinnie's father had left five years ago, nobody knew where he was. They would have considered going through to the sitting room but its large bay windows were blown out. Vinnie closed this door and turned back down the corridor, up the stairs and into the large main bedroom, which over looked the normally quiet street. His mum was quickly beside him, whipping back the floral net curtain. The taught wire holding the broad white sheet pinged and it flexed outwards to fall and gather like an avalanche of snow before the long ribbed radiator. A scene of terror was presented.
They were stunned into silence as they stared out on complete mayhem. The miniature parachutes were still landing, hovering patches of swarming unknowns, blurred rocking clouds infesting the sky and in between these bullets of brown smashed through unguided to hammer blow anything in their way. The sound of car alarms had become a horrific soundtrack, sharp peaks of noise tearing at the sky and on the road cars were slowing up or speeding to avoid the air bombs. An old SEAT mounted the curb, ripping a high pitch screech from the undercarriage, to navigate around a stationary white van but it too came to a full stop as its window screen imploded, one of the aliens striking it with the force of a plummeting brick. There was a scream, as the car door flung open and Samantha Doggett tumbled out of the driver's side.
Mary from her vantage gasped, "Samantha!" taking a step closer to the window.
Outside the stumbling woman was heavy, thickset with short mousy hair that revelled the rolls of fat ribbing the back of her neck. Vinnie could see them quite clearly from his bedroom vantage . Samantha Doggett glanced around and appeared dazed, side stepped a slow descending alien, flinched, the pressure on her ankle too great and fell, out of view and into the gutter behind a soft top Saab.""

A minor thing really but after some great feedback from a forum member I have updated the front blurb for my Online Book The Falling at www.thefalling.co.uk

It now reads;

"This website presents a free narrative that follows the lives of the people caught up in the Falling.

A terror has come from the skies; a dark swarm of alien creatures, their large slug like bodies bombarding the world. Millions die and society collapses, there appears to be little hope. But three individuals emerge from the turmoil and attempt to steer humanity towards salvation."

Cheers - Dom

Chapter 7

Vinnie and his mother must face a horrifying truth and watch as a man is transformed by one of the aliens. Are they then safe or is there another agenda they must deal with. The aliens are closer now and their very presence has a captivating power over those already infected.

Chapter 10

Vinnie helps his mother with her injuries but the world outside is surely beyond repair. He sees the live footage of windswept, alien infested, tornadoes tearing up a city and has an idea. Might there be a way of combating the oncoming aliens?
