Alien Cacti by Julie Marks

Currently unavailable for purchase

I have discovered one of the alien species on Tandaloor. I am so grateful for my hubble telescope.This group of cactus-like species has multiplied and threatens to kill off all other life forms that threaten their home world with their powerful jaws and long protruding stinging tongue . I have heard that they are amphibians and resemble great white sharks using their lethal cacti spikes to immobolize enemies. They are so dangerous that they have been known to eat their own kind. There is no stopping the pace of destruction that propels them. They enjoy capturing humans and aliens from any solar system, especially those that have royal ancestry. Is the princess one of their captives? I have a photo of the planet Tandaloor so you can understand the habitat where waterways connect their buildings and serve as passageways within their homes. I believe that the Princess might have been captured by the alien Gowachin who reside on Tandaloor and believe that females have little intelligence, and no function beyond breeding. The princess may be sequestered in the graluz or breeding pool, deep inside a Gowachin house. This will be a great challenge for Ged since the graluz is accessible only through underwater tunnels that are guarded by Alien Cacti who consume all outsiders with their giant jaws. Ged has emerged from the underwater tunnel feeling urgent to find her soon since this form of Cacti is very aggressive and unlike the cacti we recognize on earth, they grow quickly and kill with a vengence. Fearsome predators, Alien Cacti are voracious eaters who can devour and digest a full -grown man in a matter of moments. I am researching the various forms of earth succulents to try to find their weak points to consult with more sophisticated botanists about how these evil creatures can be destroyed to bring peace back to this war torn planet. Ged hopes to free the many captives that Gowachin’s abduct from planets including Earth to study other life forms. I have heard there might have been a sighting on Earth of a Space Orb that is used for intergalactic travel to capture their victims. If any one you have seen this type of plant on earth, please let me know since its origins are unknown and could be spreading through the universe. We must band together and stop the spread of malicious succulents on any planet that have living beings. I have consulted with the eminent Dr. Frank Herbert who has studied aliens on Tandaloor and wrote about them in his book The Dosadi Experiment. He said he will moniter this situation closely before a more dangerous event erupts on this hostile planet. These destructive cacti resemble the fictional character of the white shark in Jaws, a movie directed by Steven Spielberg in the 1070’s. This guy is the real thing so we must get busy. Thanks for all your help, especially those who may be botanists or who have experienced alien abduction and have returned to talk about their experiences.

    It would be a great enemy boss for a video game.
    Thanks Kathie for your comment. It does look like a giant octopus. I think we better avoid this vicious creature.

    I’m worried. I believe I have seen one of these somewhere locally! Good luck earthlings. All kidding aside, great story.
