And now I will always wonder why my cats are REALLY staring at me…

This was a very fun and entertaining read. The author also did a great job of character building in such a short, light read. I loved Charlie and Hera and was glad to see it end the way it did. The whole villain theme brought back memories of every villain ever created. I just kept chuckling and thinking of Gru and his minions!

Fun SF short about interstellar travel. The narrator it’s an intelligent machine built to carry earths seeds and civilization to a distant human habitual planet.

If I ever go full sci-fi fan, this is a writer who will take me there. Not quite the poetry of Ray Bradbury, but soundly written!
