Laugh Out Loud,
This review is from: Space Captain Smith (Paperback)
I have just finished Space Captain Smith and absolutely loved it. Sci-fi is not usually my thing but because of its deft humour and the wonderful tongue-in-cheek historical allusions, that didn't matter in the slightest. The Flashman-like throwback Isambard Smith is a brilliant character and his escapades aboard the John Pym spaceship with his motley crew are laugh out loud. The will-he-ever sexual tension between Smith and Rhianna, the woman he is trying to save, is also very funny. Apparently a second book is being published soon and I hope there is a whole series of them.
