The Luck of Bon Gobbonticle


Bon Gobbonticle grappled with the unusual combination of words:

‘Fungal catachlysm?’

Yes, every human must immediately board one of the arcs -you arrived on Earth just in time, the last humans will be evacuated today.’

‘And how long will the trip to Andromeda take?’

‘Forty years, but you are youngish, with luck you’ll live to walk on solid ground again.’

  • As a child Bon had stowed himself onto a Perscean Freighter.
  • But found spacefaring a brutal existence.
  • For thirty years Bon planned and executed a return to his home planet.

Which was when he first heard those two words together.
