04/21/20 – The Sought Ship

Spacetrawler, audio version For the blind or visually impaired, April 21, 2020.




I am still working long hours, but they’re more “normal” long hours, and so I have begun walking an hour-a-day again. it helps to live in a dirt-road neighborhood where it’s a surprise if I even see ONE other person out walking, so I don’t have to worry about spreading/receiving infection.

Not only is walking one of my favorite activities, and it’s good for my health, but I also do my best idea/writing (in my head) when walking (for some it’s the shower, for some it’s driving. For me: walking).

    Walking use to do that for me. But since my medical problems started in 2006 it just isn’t the same. No matter I get them other places. Just without anything to write notes on. (I forget to bring it.)

    Stay safe.

    I wonder when Stangor is going to just end up joining the gang. Even with her quest for vengeance and knowing the humans are associated with Emily, she seems willing to help them out.

    It would probably require the puppy aliens doing something to piss Stangor off enough to eclipse her grudge against Emily.

    Fastening on a minor detail, I know — but one of the things I like about the Trawlerverse is that even small spacecraft are huge, sometimes inconveniently so. (I mean, they’d have to be to make room for all the go-there and stay-alive machinery). It’s a nice change from the SF universes in which the characters flit about comfortably from star to star in vehicles no bigger than a Winnebago.

    What does Ruddock need help with? Why does he think Stangor can help? Why does he think Stangor WOULD help? Are the natives involved, and to what degree? And just how big a pratfall can Stangor absorb when it all comes apart/to fruition?

    Getting more popcorn. This oughta be good.

    Getting more popcorn. This oughta be good.

    Just make sure it’s a non-GMO heritage type of popcorn, popped in coconut oil, and use organicly-sourced salted butter on it.

    Only the best will do when reading Spacetrawler…

    (I know some people prefer popping corn in olive oil. In the interests of diversity we must be tolerant of their little perversions.)

        I’d be more comfortable with peanut oil, with its slightly higher smoking point.

        Interestingly enough, I’m trying to move from using pressed-seed oils like vegetable oils and canola in my cooking, to more natural oils and fats such as olive oil, butter, and bacon fat. Try using bacon fat when you make bread — HEAVEN!
