Beowulf loses his head, but takes it surprisingly well


Summary
Spaceship pilot Beowulf Shaeffer wakes up hungry, on a deserted island on a strange planet. His last memory is of being shot in the chest with a powerful weapon, but he's alive, thanks to a miraculous autodoc. More than four months have passed, and his friends are nowhere to be found... and whose boots are those?
