MISSION TO PLANET BOB by Andrew Bawn

£3.50

Three astronauts awake from suspended animation after a forty-year space flight to discover that they have aged due to a ship malfunction. Now in their late 60s, they realise that they won’t get home alive. A nearby black hole and tensions within the crew add to their troubles and make this a fast-paced science-fiction comedy that twists until the unexpected end.
