Stranger in a Strange Land is named after the 1961 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein. The story follows Mike, a human born on Mars and raised by Martians whose philosophy of Grok gift him with the power of miracle.
This series explores Mike's first steps on Earth and themes of the foreign and strange- alienation and isolation intertwined with the joy of discovery and from it, perhaps a new sense of self.
"Around a minor G-type star toward one edge of a medium-sized galaxy planets swung as they had for billions of years, under a modified inverse square law that shaped space. Four were big enough, as planets go, to be noticeable; the rest were pebbles, concealed in the fiery skirts of the primary or lost in the black reaches of space. All, as is always the case, were infected with that oddity of distorted entropy called life; on the third and fourth planets surface temperatures cycled around the freezing point of hydrogen monoxide; in consequence they had developed life forms similar enough to permit a degree of social contact."
