‘How Groundhog Saved Planet Earth’ By Alan Barysh

When the Martian Supreme Court equivalent decrees that Planet Earth is not fit to be a planet, and decrees a death penalty on this planet, Percival Z Fanowski (AKA “Groundhog “) is chosen to defend this planet. Even though the Martians have confused this Percival Z Fanowski with a famous political activist lawyer, Groundhog has the plan to turn this trial into the equivalent of a political trial.
