MRU22: Endless Worlds

Moebius aka Jean Giraud (FR)

We were off the mark with the theme for a few of the stories, but a good discussion emerged from the confusion of places.

The last MRU for 2012  and we imagine endless worlds with our first science fiction theme. Meet up in Shanghai on December 13, 2012. Share your story comments with us.
