Author has written 48 stories for Thunderbirds, UFO, and Batman Begins/Dark Knight.

I have written over 70 UFO stories from Last Post (about 900 words) to The Shepherd (about 150,000 words), and I continue to write in this rare and (to me) very treasured fandom.

ALL my stories are available first, on my website Lightcudder's World along with art work etc. My site has links to other good UFO sites, including the Herald Forum, SHADOpedia and Toria's UFO Sphere. I do not post my stories on other UFO/SHADO websites. I continue to write UFO. All my stories can be found on my site and the newer ones will be posted there. I am in the process of adding some further 'stand alone' stories to Fanfic, but these will be first chapters only.

No rambling diatribe here about 'the rights and wrongs of 'canon' ... or tags ... or what I believe in... or what you should read... or what I think about UFO.

I write UFO stories. Simple as that. You are welcome to read them if you wish.
