An early and uncompleted draft of a story that later got published as "Some Fabulous Yonder" (1963). Both versions are included in the collection Pearls from Peoria.
DESCRIPTION:
A rough version of a story, definitely not finished or polished. But nevertheless a good read. I would have liked to see this version in finished form, because I want to know what happens next...
FIRST LINES:
«Driveboard had been discovered some years before by a lone planetstriker. It was a T-type or Tellurian planet circling a GO star that hung on the rim of the Galaxy, a hundred thousand light-years from Earth. He reported back to the corporation for which he worked and to the Bureau of Extra-Terrestrial Sociology. It was a 'wild virgin', planetstriker's slang for a world ripe and ready for the plucking.»
