The Galaxy Express streaked onto my radar with Heather's very first post on May 19th, 2008 which was titled "All Aboard -- We're Ready To Launch", had witty subheadings such as "It Takes A Village To Maintain A Lunar Outpost" and "A Wormhole By Any Other Name..."
I did enjoy Heather's scholarly nod to "Romeo and Juliet"!
The Wormhole paragraph included a live link to this alien romances blog, which was very courteous and kind of Heather, and which resulted in a Google Alert.
I also rather enjoyed thinking about the village. Does anyone else remember a rock group called "The Global Village Trucking Company"?
Moreover, my favorite novel by Isaac Asimov is "The Gods Themselves" and one of the three parts involves a love story on a lunar outpost. What was yours?
How did you discover The Galaxy Express ?
