Moon Dust Castles (and other shorts) – a humorous scifi short story collection

MoonDustCastlesMoon Dust Castles (and other shorts) is a short collection of short stories that promises short bursts of laughter and long guffaws.

Imbued with a fresh lack of profundity, doused in satire, and sprinkled with whimsy, these stories will gently offend end-times prophesiers, fantasy groupies, and anyone who thinks humans actually have a clue.

With bits of science fiction and romance mixed in, this collection offers a hearty taste of Jessica E. Thomas’ rich (and sometimes bitter) imagination.

Available on Amazon.

The Giant Burrito

TheGiantBurritoWhen Ike’s bedroom goes dark, the giants come out, but they’re no ordinary scary giants. Ike’s about to meet a giant of the culinary kind—a steaming bean burrito with a mean squint who intends to take Ike and his brother on a journey they won’t soon forget.

Ike and the Giant Burrito is written by Jessica E. Thomas, but inspired by six-year-old Isaac Thomas, whose imagination defies adult boundaries. The Giant Burrito began as a tale Isaac shared with his younger brother, and the story became legend after the overgrown, stuffed mexican tortilla made repeated nightly visits to their bedroom.

Now enshrined in a book, the Giant Burrito can live on in the minds, hearts, and bedrooms of youngsters everywhere. And who knows…maybe someday he’ll bring presents.

Isaac Thomas is a first grader who loves cars, race tracks, video games, and of course, drawing. In his spare time, he enjoys playing with his little brother as well as reading and making up tall tales. His other works include Uh-Oh, Bad Hair Day, 31 Cars, and Don’t Carve Me.

  • Cure for Every Disease
  • Dying is illegal. Except for the lucky fricks who bite it quick. Like the favored one who plowed his Fiat under a semi. Not enough head room. Popped his bean clean off, sent it rolling into the back seat.

    They can’t sew a head back onto a body. No sense cryo-freezing bloody pulp. No sense arresting a dead guy either.

  • A Planet for Them
  • 0-1’s dreams make his muscles twitch. First it is just small facial spasms – like a cat when it sleeps. Then his entire body joins in. He balls up the hand-like extensions attached to what might be considered his wrists and ankles. The straps that keep him from floating away into the zero gravity also keep him from harming himself. He jerks around like an epileptic, cries out, speaks gibberish with his primitive tongue. Around him, C5 hums quietly.

    • MOOT blinked.

      Across the aisle, LU-C sat dark. Down for maintenance.

      Irrelevant. LU-C couldn’t warm MOOT’s circuits. Not anymore.
