THE WORMHOLE SERIES
If the Voyager 1 space probe was picked up in outer space by extraterrestrials, what would happen? Here’s your opportunity to find out. This series takes you to a planet called Morys Minor where the inhabitants have been trying to make sense of life on Earth.
The first book, The Wormhole Reports, charts the investigations of an extraterrestrial assigned to the task of determining the Earth’s suitability for colonisation.
The second book, The Morys Minor Tales, comprises three stories:
i. Earthwatch Uncovered lifts the lid on a popular Morys Minor tele-immersion series examining earthling life in the wake of a decision to reject Earth as a colonisation target.
ii. One Way Ticket tells the story of how Melinda Hill from Camden in London somehow ends up millions of miles from Earth, marooned, perhaps forever, on a planet in the constellation of Cygnus.
iii. The Stove Boat tells the story of what happens when Mortian war-hero polkingbeal67 swaps hearts with earthling Melinda Hill. In Herman Melville’s masterpiece, Moby Dick, Captain Ahab summoned the crew to his quarter-deck and asked them: “And what tune is it ye pull to, men?” The whalemen responded: “A dead whale or a stove boat!”, reflecting the fact that such missions typically resulted in either a slaughtered whale or a smashed boat. Distraught at the loss of his Mortian heart, polkingbeal67 embarks on an Ahab-like quest for vengeance…
The fifth part, Exile and Beyond tells the story of polkingbeal67′s exile from his home planet. Embarking on a quest to regain his birthright, he resolves to enlist the help and support of useful earthlings, only to find they have better things to do…
In The Answer is a Penguin, the sixth instalment, yukawa3 decides to get away from it all by going on holiday to Earth. In need of an earthling identity, he consults his microwocky (a Mortian mini-computer) and stipulates a simple, black and white solution that will involve no flying and plenty of fishing. The answer, according to the super-advanced state-of-the-art computational logic of his microwocky, is … a penguin.
Parallel Penguins, the final part of The Wormhole Series, offers a window into a parallel universe where yukawa3 is held prisoner by chilloks. These ant-like creatures have evolved to the point where they can take over the brains of humanoids and transport themselves (and others) to parallel universes, but they still manage to get eaten, poisoned or squashed by just about all the other life-forms.
