I appreciated the humor in this piece and would have liked to see it expanded upon even more. The beginning took a while to get going, and many of the details of this alien airport, although vivid, were unnecessary. I would have liked to see more details, instead, inside the airport bar, which is ultimately more important. A fun read! Please take a moment and read my story, "Dating Safari," which also makes use of humor, and leave your comments.

Hi, I enjoyed reading your story. Different, interesting, it definitely had my attention. I noticed a few little punctuation things, but nothing big and just like Jackillar, I never saw it coming! When you have the time would you please read my story, 'Drift Away' and let me know how you like it, by writing a review.

Death of a Saleman by Arthur Miller meets the sci fi treatment and enters the world of a Salvador Dali as a comic book artist. I think, perhaps, choosing one genre to work with, would make this easier to read. Really, it should be a comic book, but not a very long one.
