On the Benefits of Raslac....
by Karolyn Gray

Raslac. Such an beautiful word really. So intoxicatingly simple, literally. Harder than fellip nectar, sweeter than katalla tea, and quite the useful numbing agent. Oh yes, good for what ails ya. Headaches, gone. Muscle aches, gone. Neural clones-...well, OK nothing is perfect. And the next morning can be a doozy. Still it's a good way to pass the time and forget the universe for a while.

"I think you've had enough, Crichton."

"No way, man. I'm just getting started. Pass me another one."

It's not beer, but it'll do.
