I just noticed a street name not too far away from here.

Stargoose Close.

How did that name get past the boring committees that tend to do street naming?

There'll be an historical connection of some sort, I guess. Years back I was thinking about applying for a job in Saffron Waldon with the council and one of the things it involved was keeping an eye on new road names as they had a policy of choosing names that had some relevance locally.

The interesting thing is if you Google™ 'Stargoose': a late-80s video game.

Yup, I found that, too.

I kind of feel it ought to be an obscure children's novel.
