The Other Pocket: The Origins of The Hands of Hypatia

Ever since I was young, when I’ve felt overwhelmed by the perils of day-to-day life, I’ve imagined myself as a spaceman in my own ship.  I drift through the cosmos and land on a bioluminescent planet whose only source of light comes from the natural vegetation.  There I sit and look up at the stars.
