Welcome to Lightcudder’s World. No long 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 or other writers. I write UFO stories. Simple as that. You are welcome to read them if you wish. Comments always appreciated

Gentle waves washed the silver sand clear of footprints, and in the house on the cliff above only one light remained as Jeff Tracy finished his work. He put his empty mug down on the desk, heedless of the coffee ring on the once polished surface, and went over to the piano, stroking one hand over the dull and sticky surface. The keys were dusty and he pressed a few of them, just to hear the sound once more. Continue reading
A Thunderbirds fanfic story by Ltcdr. © 2014
Sleep eluded him, the once-familiar lines and angles in his bedroom morphing into strange and somewhat threatening shapes. Long-forgotten monsters from his childhood lurked in every corner and he sat up, rubbing his face with a trembling hand, reluctant to turn on the light. A few paces to the bathroom, taking care not to stub toes on the corner of his desk, a quick slash to empty a bladder that wasn’t really complaining. But it was better than lying there, waiting for sleep that never came. It was nearly four in the morning. Continue reading
I am very proud to have been involved in writing this booklet.
My sincere thanks to Mike Jones and Fanderson.
Several Links on the site have ‘gone down’ recently and have now been restored. While doing this I realised I had not posted the Ed Straker: One Hour story from … way back when! So long ago in fact that I have got through six laptops and a PC since writing that story! I have added it here simply to keep it online.
He looked at his watch again. 04.47 hours. And he was still awake. He turned over, restlessly, trying to get comfortable on the bed, but whenever he closed his eyes, whenever sleep crept up on him, he awoke with a jolt, sure that there was someone in the room, someone there, just standing, just watching. In the end he gave up trying to sleep.
I found an art folder this morning. An assortment of photographs, sketches, ideas for drawings etc, and, tucked right at the back my very first piece of ‘fanart’. A drawing of Straker done in pencil and not posted anywhere now. Seems a long time ago, and I hope my skills have improved since then. 😉 Continue reading

Several stories on this site have been ‘password protected’ for a variety of reasons. I have ‘freed’ some of these including: ‘The Needs of the Many’ and ‘Break Time’, but random stories will continue to be ‘passworded’ on occasions. My apologies for any inconvenience.
A UFO story by
The roads were busy with revellers heading into town to celebrate, noisy groups of party-goers filling the evening with their shrieks of laughter and the once pristine snow covering the carpark when he arrived three days ago was now little more than a thin covering of slush spattering the windscreen with clods of brown half-rotted ice.

Ltcdr would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Let’s hope 2016 brings some updates on the film (unlikely though) and a decent Blu-ray release. As for me, I am resolving to finally completing a couple of older and unfinished stories depending on my personal circumstances. Continue reading
