Hal Spacejock loves to watch cargo ships taking off for distant star systems.
One day, he promises himself. One day I'll leave this dump of a planet and explore the galaxy!
But Hal's not supposed to watch the ships.
No, his job is to load cargo into them... and he's not very good at it.
After a particularly bad mixup, Hal flees from his boss, certain he'll get the sack.
Instead, he runs smack-bang into an adventure that will alter the course of his life.
This is a prequel novella covering the events leading up to Hal 1: A Robot Named Clunk. You can read it before or after any of the Hal Spacejock novels.
