An Acquired Taste

The Gulrathian Empire has sent it's finest battle cruiser to wipe out a small Earth colony. They were the deadliest warriors in the sector, giants by human standards, and this would be their first encounter with humans. They assumed it would be easy and quick, however, they made one error – They didn't know their enemy.

This story is a homage to Alan Dean Foster's "With Friends Like These".

An Acquired Taste

As a rule I don't mess with short stories but the name caught my attention. What the heck, it was free! A short time later I was laughing, it made my day! I do so like a twist when it comes from out of left field... I will check out Mr Moon's other endeavors....
