    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    "The Big Whale" is a short story, available through December 18, from the Audible Frontiers science-fiction collection Rip-Off! In Rip-Off!, 13 of today's best and most-honored writers of speculative fiction face a challenge even they would be hard-pressed to conceive: pick your favorite opening line from a classic piece of fiction (or even non-fiction) - then use it as the first sentence of an entirely original short story. Here, "Call me Ishmael" introduces a tough-as-nails private eye - who carries a harpoon.

    Paul says: "Great Story can not wait to get the full book!!!"
    "A different whale tale"
