If Rockets Could Squee…

While jetting around the interwebs today, Stubby the Rocket wandered into a tattoo parlor with the intention of getting some ink done. Eventually, Stubby settled on getting a tattoo of Stubby the Rocket. (It’s idiosyncratic like that.) Little did Stubby know, author Kelly Lagor has already done it in celebration of the sale of her first story to Tor.com! (Forthcoming in early 2012.) Behold: a real Stubby the Rocket tattoo!

Kelly Lagor is a retired scientist, a current writer, and an all around pretty nifty person. We are beyond flattered by this amazing tribute to the most wonderful rocket of them all. From Kelly’s blog:

Since I’ve been wanting to get some kind of sci-fi related tattoo for a while, getting Tor.com‘s mascot, Stubby, made perfect sense. That and I friggin’ love that little anthropomorphized rocket.

Thanks Kelly! Link to Kelly Lagor’s site here.


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com. Stubby thinks this is just the beginning.
