Spacetrawler, audio version For the blind or visually impaired, December 9, 2020.
By the way, if you’re into sailor’s knots (or know someone who is), possibly as earrings or ornaments, my good friend Christy has an Etsy store: AHOY VOYAGER!
And yup. A new chapter. If you’re wondering “where does Christopher come up with such ridiculous names?” Well… um… if you happen to figure it out, let me know. I’d be curious.
A true friend will help you move a body… For a price.
The names come courtesy of a little help from our good friend the barbot.
Barbot is surprisingly good at coming up with names. What did you think I meant?
The redhead’s name has slipped my mind, but I love the implication that she is basically Han Solo despite her angelic appearance.
To hear it pronounced, give a listen to the audio version for the blind or visually impaired at the top of the page.
Happiest member of the crew here is the one sleeping through everything.
Ruddock knows how to manage their resources
The moral and ethical constraints of the coming business deal present themselves. The actual physical cost will have to wait for the Wezwezians to see what they can bargain for.
Stephen King, asked where he gets his ideas from, has a stock answer: “Utica.”
… which is 77.6 miles by road from Schenectady, where Harlan Ellison said he got his ideas.
I thought Harlan got his ideas from a box he found in his uncle’s attic, along with the heart of a little boy.
(IIRC, someone asked him why his stories were so dark. He replied “I don’t know what you mean. I have the heart of a little boy. I keep it pickled in alcohol and sitting on my desk.)
The heart quote is actually by Robert Bloch.
Harlan Ellison is the Mark Twain of quote sources. If you can’t remember who said it, well, didn’t Harlan say it? He said so many things, after all.
