Chapter One I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels carried on the company satellites. It had been well over 35,000 hours or so since then, with still not much murdering, but probably, I dont know, a little under 35,000 hours of movies, serials, books, plays, and music consumed. As a heartless killing machine, I was a terrible failure. I was also still doing my job, on a new contract, ...

Yet, certainly, even amid Vernes remarkable works, his Off on a Comet must be given high rank. Perhaps this story will be remembered when even Round the World in Eighty Days and Michael Strogoff have been obliterated by centuries of time. At least, of the many books since written upon the same theme as Vernes, no one has yet succeeded in equaling or even approaching it. In one ...
