Harrison, H., & Performer, B. G. (n.d.). The Repairman. Retrieved from

This is a clever short story, featuring the adventure of a space beacon repairman who encounters a culture that has built itself around the existence of the beacon its impact on the environment.

My boss leaned back, wiped his hands on his handkerchief and gave me Lecture Forty-four on Company Duty and My Troubles. "This department is officially called Maintenance and Repair, when it really should be called trouble-shooting. Hyperspace beacons are made to last forever -- or damn close to it. When one of them breaks down, it is "never" an accident, and repairing the thing is never a matter of just plugging in a new part." He was telling "me" -- the guy who did the job while he sat back on his fat paycheck in an air-conditioned office.
