The Last Man On Earth

Ground control to Major Tom

They’ve all left, but one. One lone intergalactic spaceship. Loading the last 15,000 passengers and preparing for its maiden voyage to planet Kepler 552b, 1,400 light-years from earth. Using warp 9 the trip will be made in 14 years. Prior to the creation of warp drive, it would have taken 26 million years.



The Lark shares fictional short stories and poetry

I write about love, life, loss, kindness, and gratitude. Toss in some fiction and humor and you have the meanderings of a multifarious writer.
