Food in Spaaaaaaace!

First, since it's the 15th, I have a post up at the Scene 13 group blog. Our theme this month is "Mayday! Mayday! Overcoming challenges and obstacles." I chose to focus on the first part of the theme: Mayday, a call for help. What motivates protagonists to ask for help? To find out more, click here.

It's hard to believe WisCon is next week. I'll be participating in a panel on food in space, reading from Twinned Universes, and participating in the Sign-Out on Monday. I'll also help out at the Broad Universe table at some point, though I don't know when yet.  Trying to prepare for WisCon and my son's upcoming birthday party while keeping up with writing and work is always a challenge. I have a couple of books I'd like to use for examples of food on a spaceship, but I could always use more. Does anyone have any that they'd like to recommend? If so, please add them to the comment section. Thanks!

Can't think of any. Cool you get to be on a panel at the Con.

I'm not sure what you mean by food on a spaceship. You mean being grown/produced there or just being consumed there? I bet there's something in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, though I can't think of anything specific right now.

Thanks, Alex!

PT, the panel is going to discuss all aspects of food on spaceships. And every time I think of food in the HHGG series, I think of The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, which probably doesn't fit.
