The Misadventures of Fat Ernie

When Douglas Adams died I was devastated. He wrote some of the most loved and read science-fictions stories of all time: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series.

For a long time I wanted to write a comedic science-fiction story, not to emulate him, but to honor one of my favorite authors. Of course, there’s no way I could write as well as the master – but I wanted to try my hand at comedy sci-fi. I put it off for a long time, writing in fits and starts.

Then, I wrote a few sentences that were kinda good and I saved them. Until this week, when after talking to my new friend Chris, I revived those few sentences, added to them, and began my comedic sci-fi in earnest. I shared with Chris and we decided to do a back-and-forth story similar to what Teri and I (and now Chris) are doing with “Neith: The Legendary Moon of Venus.

So, here is the story of an idiot named “Fat Ernie” and his adventures after he wakes to find that every living thing on Earth, save himself, had the poor taste to suddenly die. New chapters will be added as we write them.

Please read, enjoy, and COMMENT!
