Overcast 137: They Come From the Void by Luke Elliott
They Come From the Void by Luke Elliott. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword recorded by Luke Elliott.
Orblights rose from beneath black waves, boiling the saltwater into white banks of steam. Seven lighthouses flashed golden as their rotating lenses cut beams from the headland into the rolling sea. The orblights hovered over shoals, between craggy sea stacks, and amid high breaking surf in paths unwavering, though the sea assailed them. They would only alter course to glide up the sheer cliffs into the coastal village of Overmorn Cove, whose people congregated outside their homes to meet them.
Luke Elliott’s fiction has appeared in Metaphorosis Magazine, the Buckman Journal, and The Best Vegan Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2018 collection.
