The Serpent Class Courier, Adder, is sent to Olgana to deliver mail to the Federation Survey Service base. Originally a lost colony Olgana is now inhabited by an intelligent race but still situated well off the main Galactic trade routes. With the crew given shore leave, Grimes goes on holiday with Spooky Deane, the ship's psionic communications officer, to the continent of Nevernever. They meet two Australian school teachers also on vacation and visit Cragge Rock, the largest monolith in known space.

Works about this Work

Australian Science Fiction, as Showcased by Australian SF Anthologies Stephan Kraitsowits , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , Special Issue vol. 11 no. 1 2011; (p. 1-11)
'An apparently convenient way of studying Australian science fiction is to analyse the contents of ready-made anthologies of Australian science fiction. In doing so, the researcher discreetly circumvents the thorny issue of 'What is Australian?' and also 'What is science fiction?' by taking for granted that the texts within collections of Australian sf necessarily are Australian science fiction. Things, however, are never quite so simple and before being able to add to the debate as to what Australian science fiction truly is, it is necessary to overview the 50 odd years separating the most recent sf anthologies from the very first anthology showcasing Australian science fiction and to plot the meandering course of the genre's commercial development.'
