I laughed my way through the whole book. Writing humor is not easy, but this author made it seem effortless. In a world filled with robots and AIs, Clunk endeared himself to me. Adversely, his human counterpart, Hal Spacejock, was just the opposite. I wanted to strangle him numerous times. But this was by the author's design. These two experience one hilarious snafu after another. Thankfully, it all ended well and I'm off to read the next book !!

J. R. Kruze

A dark comedy of a young woman that pulls you into her desperate actions to become the only human police officer for an entire planet. Had me smiling and chuckling, especially at the comic relief of the over-powered and under-programmed robot companion. Sill reading away, stealing time to finish it...

I'm reading this now and really enjoying it! Harriet is great fun! :)

Sam Sea

Another great novel for those of us who enjoy seeing a strong female lead character set in a scifi mystery setting.

So imagine Thonn's surprise when he spies Eddie de Elder attempting Magick spells inside his remote cottage!


The Desolator

A barbarian, a halfling and a cleric walk into a bar ... join Hurm, Runt and Father Mephistophiles as they struggle to save the hamlet of Yendour from a marauding dragon. A high fantasy parody from the author of the Hal Spacejock series.
