Readers of science fiction may like a rest from the high seriousness and complexities of modern science fiction and relax while reading the biography of Klubbe, inventor, explorer, native of the planet, Ankor. My story was inspired by a tiny toy model of a turtle, designed to fit on the end of a pencil, which I found on the floor. Oddly, it stood on two legs, so I decided it was not a turtle at all, but a being that only looked like one. So I changed the second t in turtle to k to get turkle, and I named this particular turkle, Klubbe, native of the planet, Ankor.  Here is the blurb I wrote for the back cover of my book:

On the planet Ankor, Klubbe the turkle lives as a hermit. A marine mishap inspires him to be an inventor. His inventions and explorations change his life, his entire planet.

Turkles are close cousins of turtles. Unlike them, they have yellow golden skin and back shells, walk on their hind legs, have the gift of language, and the ability to create their own culture.

The life of Klubbe may read like a light-hearted science fiction story, but it actually happened to him. Princess Corka thinks his invention is sublime. Ubbtosh, the pyramid priest, promises to guide him to the core of the cosmos. In space, there are no sign posts, he finds, but there are other beings. And on Ankor, there are mysteries to be solved. Is the Great Glom more than a myth? And what about the Great Archy Eopta?
