Ed Thrush was born on August 16, 1954. He now lives in Woodlawn, Maryland. Growing up with the original “Outer Limits” television series he was highly influenced by science fiction and followed the space program closely as a child. Recently he obtained all 42 episodes of the Outer Limits and watched them all. An early science fiction reader (among other genres) and lover of sci-fi films, Ed has decided to publish one of his own short stories. It is hoped that this will be the start of more to come.

That comes to about 480,000 miles per hour heading straight for us! That is about three times the fastest meteorite rate recorded, we have an anomaly, not rare for speed but for size, speed and uh… target
