About the author:
Tilly Jupiter escaped to this time & space continuum a few years back (so she claims) with little more than a wicked sense of humor, a perceptive eye, a love for story, and little patience for fools. But that is quite a lot when you think about it. Ensconced in a remote bunker, she writes stories that strike fear into the hearts of the mediocre and chortles endlessly about the fact that some people think it is fiction.

A Lovely Failure

Authored by Tilly Jupiter

Words like "success" and "failure" don't really mean much when you lose their cultural references. And CharlPosted to a remote planet as a consequence of his many failures, Charles is supposed to search for resources the home world can exploit. Lazy and self-indulgent, he fakes his reports and earns the love of the indigenous people, who consider striving for its own sake rather foolish. Having learned to love the people and the planet, he feels at home.

When the home world abruptly sends a new person to check up on him, he joins with Queen Ayesha to take serious measure to prevent success from being thrust upon them all.
