One of the first planets the aliens took me was Garleana V on the outer boundry of the “Star Nebula”.
Its a mere 600.000 light yrs from Earth.
Not much beach walking here, temps very cool, the big draw is the fishing.
Went out for a day, caught a ton of Silver Darters, smallest about 50 lbs, biggest about 2300 lbs.
Great eating, and washed down with tankards of Yellow Glowworm Slime Jelly, a being could not ask for a better feast.
I spent my time fishing and exploring this beautiful world.
And as with all my work, inspired by the great unknown ….Beyond the Bounds of Earth.
