True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

A Moon With A View

Thinking about purchasing property? Want something different? How about purchasing land on the moon, Venus, Mars or any of the other planets in our solar system (including Pluto)?

Prices start at $19.99 an acre on the Moon and $22.49 an acre on Mars (plus tax, shipping and handling).

Dennis Hope, owner and founder of Lunar Embassy Corp, purchased the property rights in 1968. According to the Outer Space Treaty (the governing document of outer space), there was nothing to prohibit a private person from acquiring the land.

To date, Hope has sold over 600 million acres on the moon (only 7.5%) and 325 million acres on Mars. Most has gone to corporations, including hotel chains. Fortunately, Hope is an honest man as there are some areas that remain protected. For example, the Apollo landing sites and the face and pyramids on Mars are not for sale.

If buying celestial real estate isn’t your thing but you’d still like to add to your portfolio, I’m selling virtual properties (aka virtu-real estate).

A variety of options are available. You can purchase virtual land with or without a home in a rural, urban or fictional setting. Simply give me the specs of your ideal virtual property and I’ll imagine it. You don’t have to stop there. You can also purchase a virtual family and virtual pets. Prices vary by detail and complexity.

You’ll receive an original, one of a kind, electronic description of your virtual purchase. When printed, the description will be suitable for framing.

If this venture turns out to be a winner, more service offerings will be added. When placing your order, let me know what else you’d like to buy.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,



This looks like a good spot

Almost as good as virtu-real estate

  1. Does a person live longer on the moon?

    • Maybe. If you can get air, water and regular exercise. I think your chances are better with my virtu-real estate. Especially if you purchase a virtual pet, too. 🙂

  2. Hmm. This is like 20 years ago when someone told me we could bottle water and sell it. No one will pay for water! It’s free. Uh huh.

    • Water, property on another world, pet rocks – these are all reasons I thought virtu-real estate could be successful. I haven’t had any orders yet but I remain optimistic! (P.S. There’s water on the moon)

I love it when you comment - it makes my day!
