Die Wurmloch-Odyssee. Eine Weltraum-Operette (The Wormhole Odyssey. A Space Operetta)

This is a tounge-in-cheek circle of eight stories about the adventures of a spaceship and its crew, who try to get home to Earth. They are hampered not so much by instable wormholes but by management procedures, team building, shared responsibilities, and cultural clashes - not to mention hamp.

Have you ever met a time-devouring world-spawner? Have you ever made landfall on two half-planets? Did you train with your spacecraft choir songs of the Hreng?

The authors are deeply indebted to Hardy Kettlitz and the imprint Memoranda of Golkonda Publishers for continuing the series after Shayol Publishers obviously have discontinued publishing any books.
