But not today.

Coyoty August 8, 2019 at 12:51 am 4 years ago They’re all just serpents with bad skin. Coyoty August 8, 2019 at 12:53 am 4 years ago I think Krep needs to see a dermatologist. And a herpetologist. Kat August 9, 2019 at 9:25 pm 4 years ago A…derpatologist? sorry. 0z79 August 9, 2019 at 10:35 pm 4 years ago I like the cut of your jib! Night-Gaunt49 August 8, 2019 at 1:14 am 4 years ago Could they be going to Earth next? Easy pickings… TB August 8, 2019 at 11:44 am 4 years ago A cynic might wonder how many of them are already here. They can’t really take over the world, though, because so much communication at that level involves things like TV appearances, where pheromones wouldn’t work. The Slinten One Big Thing kind of requires a personal presence. ronald August 8, 2019 at 1:14 am 4 years ago He/they made it through two sentences without being surly and pessimistic. Shouldn’t that be a tipoff to anyone who’s known Krep for, I don’t know, more than an hour? 😉 Efogoto August 8, 2019 at 2:57 am 4 years ago I laughed out loud when I noticed the slinten head at the end of a tentacle. He’s so cuuuuuuuuuuuuute! ronald August 8, 2019 at 4:40 am 4 years ago “It’s good I’m off to Earth, because I’ll likely never have to see one again.” “Likely”? Well, yeah, I suppose almost anything’s possible. Actually, since Slinten Pods are almost identical to Earth snakes (at least, to those occasionally seen in “Little Dee”), she might get a few false sightings now and then. Julia August 8, 2019 at 7:24 am 4 years ago Hi Chris. The link to the Bruno archive seems to be broken. Can you check please? Thanks. Julia Christopher Baldwin August 8, 2019 at 10:56 am 4 years ago Working on it! Hopefully back up tonight! Julia August 8, 2019 at 7:18 pm 4 years ago Thank you! Christopher Baldwin August 8, 2019 at 7:19 pm 4 years ago You’re welcome, annnnnnd… it looks like it’s up! 🙂 PeterK August 8, 2019 at 12:38 pm 4 years ago HA! Honestly can’t tell if she’s doing this on purpose or not. Peter Rogan August 8, 2019 at 3:44 pm 4 years ago Oh, those damned slinten pods! It WAS my security keeping me from seeing this page. Thanks to all who tried to help me. I’m okay, now, really. I’m fine. How are you? Rikard August 10, 2019 at 3:28 pm 4 years ago Joyce’s comment on “disguises, influential pheromones and a sweet innocent demeanor” is delightfully dubble-edged. ‘Cause there are no such get-togethers, gatherings or social functions on ole’ Earth could be described as such, yes? How ’bout a spinoff about a race, sort of a ‘Cannonball run’ only in the Spacetrawler-setting? All of it as a set-up for the atrocity-level pun of “slinten pod racing”. Right, The door. I can show myself out, thank you. Meran August 14, 2019 at 11:28 am 4 years ago I heard a rumor… that you’ll not be doing any more Spacetrawler after this round? Chris, say it isn’t so! Christopher Baldwin August 14, 2019 at 11:59 am 4 years ago That is incorrect. When this is done I will be going straight into the next Spacetrawler story. Meran August 21, 2019 at 2:32 am 4 years ago Yay!!! I need to get ALL the Spacetrawler books when this next one comes out. I’m serious! Could you please make sure there’s a whole set, just for me? Signed, of course. They’ll go on the bookshelves next to my Little Dee books. Thanks for all you do for me, ahem, US! I appreciate your work. As I’m sure your other fans who post, here, do. (And let’s hope MANY of the lurkers too.) Christopher John Baldwin August 21, 2019 at 10:53 am 4 years ago Ha! You’re welcome, Meran! 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
