Mongoose Cover



How would you deal with an "invasion" of pesky serpentine entities from another dimension? Why, Rikki Tikki Tavi, of course. In short, a mongoose. And then there is the indescribable sound they make as they are caught, because "In space, no-one can hear you...."

This particular technological mongoose is under the influence / direction / control of our heroine. And no, her "pet is not actually named RTT, but he/she/it nevertheless shares a fictional vocation with Rudyard Kipling's wonderful critter.

This work is truly a joy to read. And to follow through the other Boojum adventures - with more to follow from this talented due, we fervently hope.
