Une excellente lecture
|There are many Easter eggs in this story, and a lot of humor based on the notion that technology meant to be useful often isn’t. Can you tell us a bit more about how this story came together? |
Let’s face it: Crash landings are no one’s preferred method of parking. Mostly because you will die screaming if you crash land, whether it’s in a helicopter, a hang glider or a space ship. I had actually been pitching you guys to let me write some non-fiction for a while and you gave me a shot at writing this piece to go along with that Stephen King story about some guys who crash land on an alien planet covered with angry sand. I wrote the article and John decided he would use it as fiction, leaving you in the lurch for the Stephen King story. John’s so inconsiderate sometimes.
