#ScienceFiction Snippet for #WeWriWa - Battle with Wasp Spiders

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’ll continue the aftermath of the wasp-spider attack on Moon Station from Grand Master’s Game. Last week’s snippet can be read here –

“Her pawn’s collar stopped the jaws from closing,” Athanor grated. The Grand Master clambered to his feet and retrieved his dagger from the punctured eye of their attacker. He lent his hand to help Violet scramble up.
She hung shakily to his arm and looked around. Six bulky yellow-striped bodies lay on the floor, their legs still twitching. A tall woman in a survival suit stood two paces away; her open faceplate showed the white skin and dark goggles of an albino. Two men in combat gear moved from body to body, aiming heavy duty lasers in case an insect revived.
One workman had defended himself with the toolbox and screwdriver he brandished. The second workman lay on the ground, blood pumping from his neck where the mandibles had cut through the tough suit. Sickened by the gory sight, Violet turned away.

Books 1 & 2 of the Trilogy are published and I am polishing Book 3.
Grand Master’s Pawn is 99c for November
Grand Master’s Pawn:

  1. Wow, your description was very realistic (repeat,I should not have read this before getting ready for bed!). Very well done.

    1. Thank you and sorry! I should post a pleasant scene sometime for a change.
