In this month’s story, Orman an untalented musician, of dubious origin, on tour in Orbit City New Mexico, meets Garth the curator of the local space museum during one of her performances. Garth had once dreamed of becoming an astronaut, but instead had settled for a job working with space program artifacts. He discovers that Orman is not the usual travelling musical act and decides to show her to the town’s unofficial attraction, the landfill, were decades ago thousands of unwanted video game cartridges are supposed to have been buried. He thinks the musician is not what she claims to be and is only in town to dig up some the ancient game cartridges to sell to collectors, but truth is far different than he suspects.
