Spaceman No.3, Sent by God
A reluctant spaceman is dispatched to Planet Earth and, assuming human form, instructed to check out the planet. He is nervous. To the first man he meets, an Irishman, he offers a drop of rare MacAnguish's Caledonian Panacea whisky. Then a man dressed (for good reason) as Sherlock Holmes joins them. This quirky little tale documents our intrepid hero’s further adventures. More
When a spaceman lands his craft at dead of night on a hill in a quiet city park, he doesn’t know what to expect — and fears the worst. He is a very reluctant visitor.
Others before him have failed in this mission — to check out for God whether it is a good time to make his Big Comeback on planet Earth. (God took a sabbatical and decamped to another solar system after a German philosopher famously declared ‘God is dead’.)
But the first person he meets is a friendly Irishman who, stereotypically, has already had a few drinks. And is delighted to join him in a few more when the visitor produces a bottle of McAnguish’s Caledonian Panacea, the rarest brand of whisky in the world (probably in the universe).
Then they spot a man pushing a bicycle up the hill towards them, a man dressed as Sherlock Holmes. (He has a good reason for that.)
This little romp of a tale goes on to document our intrepid hero’s further adventures in the big city.
