Synopsis: The owner of an itinerant penny-arcade stumbles upon an unchartered planet inside the orbit of Sirius I, dubbed by him Nothing Sirius (from Sirius 0). It only consists of clay hills and rare bushes, but some strange sights soon impose themselves to its explorers : a giant ostrich wearing a hat and a bow-tie, birds with propellors, a road leading nowhere, and more — not to mention normal-looking cockroaches. Or are they ?
