Here's the first instalment of my story set on the planet Krishna. I was only 10 years old and yet I feel it's on a par with some of the Beast Quest books, for example. I realize that's not saying much. The entry from my primary school exercise book begins by setting the scene...

I am reading a book called A Planet Called Krishna. The author is L Sprague de Camp.
Krishna is a planet very similar to Earth in Roman times. Krishnans are just like humans except they have two short antennae.
Here is my own story about Krishna:
“The World of Krishna” part 1
Acer lom-Tanoc stood in a Krishnan inn. The innkeeper scurried up to him and handed him a menu.
Acer sat down and contemplated the list of meals. He ordered a roast shomal and a glass of cragot. (Cragot is the Krishnans’ answer to beer.)
Suddenly he felt a dagger-point touching the back of his neck.
