Publisher's Summary

The essence of a truly null-Earth logic may never be as clearly defined as in this novel-length package of interplanetary surprises. Ride The Wormway To No-Wonderland. Consider this marooned astronaut. His spaceship and supplies are swallowed in one gulp by something from beneath the featureless plain of an unknown world. The natives are not hostile but incurious. He fathers a child without ever touching the mother. It's when he does physically create his true offspring that he gets his most startling surprise.

As colourful as the setting.

Other reviews promised a humorous antagonistic dealing with a bizarre set of circumstances.
Two ironic comments later and it settled in to an at times disturbing short story with all the pace of a bicycle with seized brakes.
The narration was as flat as the overly described stones so prominent in the landscape.
