S & F! I had also thought of the Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy with this story.

Loved the idea that the entire universe is studded with Chinese restaurants with crabby owners who can't speak the native language! "Golden jellied eel"...too funny!


Thank you. It's my small nod to the Great Douglas Adams.

Glad you liked it.

"Dirk" was also a nod to Douglas Adams with his book "Dirk Gentley's Holistic Detective Agency".

Captain Hero is all American, pure, 100% CHEESE!

This is the first Dirk story.

The second Dirk story is linked to my signature.

The Freemley name I've been using for about 6 months or so.

Personally, I think you're either Piers Anthony or Terry Pratchett writing under a pseudonym. We're the test audience to see how well these'll sell. Great story as usual.

If anyone, it'd be Terry Pratchett.

I'm humbled by the complement. Thank you.

Seriously, you should put a book of short stories together. I've paid 10 bucks on Amazon for a collection of shorts that are not half as entertaining or full of imagination as yours. I read a lot and the pickins' are gettin' thin.

Thank you. And yes, I'm working on that. I have a number of short stories. The most current one is something I'm playing with (see signature).

One day ( fingers crossed) soon.
