The time is now (almost), and some Americans have decided that Canada is not quite far enough from their roiling homeland. For them there is ComeTakeMe.com, a website where people advertise to get taken by aliens.
Will anyone succeed? How about Marshall M. Shmishkiss, a starry-eyed optimist determined to become his world’s most eligible abductee? Marshall trains his body. He trains his mind. He tries to prepare for every challenge that might await a lone human on a ship of galactic explorers. And soon he will face a choice.
Either make one final, Faustian attempt at leaving his planet . . .
Or get used to down-to-earth drudgery and the end of his dreams.
Perhaps you too long for escape. Maybe you like action, adventure, absurdity, hilarity. Even a touch of allegory. You’ll find it all here, along with tragedy, parody, poignancy, plus, for the first time in centuries, an entirely new way to swear.
