The Spaceship (Literature & Fiction)
4 chapters   —   updated May 30, 2018 11:21PM
Description: <i>Editor's Note: This "story" is a series of scribbles by a space traveler of the future, whose intent was apparently to record her first trip. It is presented here with no rationale for publication other than it is already divided into four parts, including a conclusion (however doubtful). I have placed this under the catch-all "Literature & Fiction" genre since it contains nothing of scientific or even journalistic value.</i>
