Hello, and Happy March 32nd to all of you!
I think it’s safe to say that April Fools Day couldn’t have come at a better time. The world is currently trudging its way through a frightening pandemic that has affected our daily lives and reminded us that, once in a blue moon, truth is more tragic than fiction. It’s been a strange and stressful time for all of us, and if ever there was a time when we could all use a good laugh, it’s right now.
To that end, I set out to make this April Fools Day a special one. Last year’s prank was a classic fake-out gag that tricked and confused a few readers, and it was a fun little thing to do. But it wasn’t my first choice. My initial idea was to actually write a full story and give people a good laugh. When I ended up not having the time to write that story, I went with a simpler prank. This year, I was determined to see that original idea through to completion, and hey… I did!
And it couldn’t have been a better time. All across the internet, Godzilla fans are joining forces to entertain their fellow G-lovers with art, podcasts, live streams, and good conversation. It’s been inspiring and truly heart-warming to see, and I hope I can be a small part of spreading such positivity through my own creative endeavors.
To that end, I’m happy to present an all-new – and VERY silly – short story that’s been a long time in the making. It adapts an original scenario that’s been stuck in my head for years, a scenario involving bad guys, time travel, and a certain beloved – if charmingly convoluted – entry in the Godzilla franchise. I think that’s all you need to know before giving it a read!
I hope you enjoy this goofy little tale, and that it brightens your day and gives you a laugh or two.
Stay safe, stay happy, and thanks to you all for your continuing support. Stay tuned for more fun stuff and big announcements coming soon!
