New sci-fi short story - 'Tags'

icon-mk-microscope
Just a quick note to say that I've added a new science-fiction short story called 'Tags' to this website. In the story, a UK professor, working in a top-secret government lab, discovers one night that the star 'Sirius', normally calm and blue-white in the sky, has somehow turned red and flaming. He's immediately called back to his lab because his bosses have discovered something else, that the star's red and flaming light is an interstellar laser beam that a civilisation on a planet around the star has fired at Earth. What's even more important is that the laser beam has carried a virus to Earth.

The story draws upon two non-fiction articles I've written and published on this website, Laser beam from Sirius and Evolution and Alien Viruses. Hope you enjoy it! :-)
