SF Drabble #38 “Tell The President I’ll Call Him Back.”

The orbital club only has five members: the US, the EU, Russia, China, and Wallace Wills. It’s no wonder, the world’s entire financial system runs on his software. One of his other companies builds the heavy lift boosters everyone uses, so he gets them for cost. I hear when his personal ship went up the first time all hell broke loose, but nobody could do anything about it because it was Wallace Wills.

He’s building a luxury resort in orbit around Mars, a spinning cylinder a kilometer long. Talk about a destination vacation.

I should start playing the lottery again.
