Overview

A representative of space faring ETs recruits a 60-ish retired gentleman farmer to start up an agriculture enterprise. This group of ETs love food. Food has become their art and reason to be. They forage the stars of heaven to find delectable morsels.
While entertaining his very tall ET visitor, the retired gentleman farmer (Jonus) prepares a simple snack which uses lots of garlic, sesame and chick pea paste. The ET (T'Lanette Traos) goes nuts over garlic and wants Jonus to come back to her mother ship and start a garlic growing enterprise. She is positive that they will become wealthy through the monopolization of garlic.
He agrees and brings his big old dog with him.
The mother ship is massive -- half the size of our moon. There are nearly 25 million ETs and 14 million of other races that the ETs brought on board.
Along with the living, the souls of the deceased dwell on board the massive ship. The combination of technologies used to push the moon-boat through the stars of heaven created a spirit trapping field.
Souls that could not complete 'migration' either went mad or became fully integrated members of the crew. Mad souls we called Disgruntled Discorporates. The ET's had developed technology which allowed the soul to occupy electronic and other equipment. This was called a Discorporate Boolean Interface or DBI. Only well adjusted Discorporates were allowed to occupy DBI technology.
Disgruntled Discorporates sought the destruction of the ship -- the only way they could be free to complete 'migration'.
The ETs possess bio-engineered virus which translate verbal languages. Jonus and his dog Khan are exposed to the Translator germs.
Jonus and Khan must adapt to all of the culture shock and weave their way through the various factions on board.
Garlic is hugely successful and makes all 39 Earthlings wealthy and famous.
Jonus suffers a terrible accident and is reborn as a Discorporate entity.

Meet the Author

Born in the late 50's. I breezed through the Cold War and era of Mutually Assured Destruction with the oblivious mind of a child. When I emerged from the bubble I realized that both Einstein and Hendrix had passed away... Now that I am in my 50's I find that I must re-inhabit that oblivious space of my childhood. Only now I must carry on without the Friendly Giant to guide me.

    Okay

    Started out pretty interesting but kinda got lost towards the end. Needs some editing to tighten up the storyline.
