Another report from Alien Resort. They’ve made peace with it.
When you sit on the beach at Alien Resort island, you hear the eons-old rush of the waves meeting the shore. But tonight we’re in the middle of the island, gathered in front of Plucky’s spaceship, and that sound is very distant. The view of the sky here is as good as anywhere on Earth. Long ago we gave up hope of a quick rescue, and have made peace with living on this planet. All of us agree that there are worse places to be stranded. Lmao got lost on his planet and forest rescue couldn’t find him. He says he was up a creek.

It's in there somewhere, or it fell through onto the floor under the chair. After a cursory … Continue reading A Disjointed Post . . .
The latest installment in the continuing story of Alien Resort.
After a few weeks had passed, we received a response to our “situations wanted” inquiry on Craigslist. A writer named David Davis wanted to make comics for newspapers but was having trouble developing characters. We sent him our bios and did a Skype; then he sent us some scripts. The arrangement has worked out better than anyone ever imagined. The four of us now have a workday we can look forward to, and Mr. Davis has been successful in getting our comics published in Earth newspapers. Lmao once bought a second-hand rover; it drove him up a wall.
Yesterday we posted a review of Elizabeth Buhmann's novel BLUE LAKE. Today we hear from the author herself: Where did you get the idea for Blue Lake? A friend told me something about her family history. Her grandmother, who was born in 1910, had 12 children.
