The Travellinbaen Universe burst forth from nothingness in late May, 2008. I’m reminded of a passage from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, which, you should know, was a major inspiration for the direction of the blog and continues to influence every spasm of its life in subtle and random ways, a fact about which, if you are a fan of the book, the movie, commas or the series you might find mildly amusing. Oh yes, the passage. I can’t recall it well enough to paraphrase and I can’t find it to copy. But it would’ve fit in perfectly right here.
All of which is a long way of saying, the posts on this page are the ones I consider my best. Or at least my favorite. And one or two that seem the most popular. If you don’t like anything on this page I don’t blame you. Please leave quietly and quickly. If on the other hand you think you might like to have citizenship here there is no such thing as an illegal alien. Just speak up occasionally. A universe is compelled to grow or die and this one thrives on words, lots of them, mostly mine, too many commas, and a lot of yours.
