Zagreus sits inside your head. Zagreus lives among the dead. Zagreus sees you in your bed and eats you when you're sleeping....

Listen to the Neverland story first, and possibly the Storm Warning for context. Also watch The 5 Doctors special it will give context for many of the characters and places traveled to.

Space is a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer. Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? What happens to you when you can’t walk for a year? Have sex? Smell flowers? What happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible for the human body to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles per hour?

Mary's dry wit is captured beautifully by Sandra as you are propelled through all of the unusual and occasionally taboo aspects of space travel. Plus several of the more extreme hoaxes reported in other space and NASA books are handily debunked.
