CM4 The Stone Goddess by Sean Monaghan

Ben shook dust from his undersuit and keyed the light on. That formation yesterday, at the edge of the valley. He'd dreamed of it, something about an alien visitor . . . Today we're featuring our first science fiction story, and our first from the Lame Goat Press anthology, Horror through the Ages. The anthology is still available at Amazon and CreateSpace, so if you like The Stone Goddess, there's plenty more where that came from.

Today's story is The Stone Goddess by Sean Monaghan. Sean is a New Zealand-based writer who also tutors in creative writing and reviews books.  Sean's stories have appeared in numerous publications both online and in print, including Flashes in the Dark, Takahe, 365 Tomorrows, Antipodean Science Fiction and several Lame Goat Press volumes.  Sean has released a number of albums of ambient music as Venus Vulture.  More information about both his writing and music can be found at his website venusvulture.com.

Now, we've a tale to tell you . . .
