Product description

Review

"Finally, a science fiction book your grandmother will love--If she's a lustful, violent lady." --Stephen Colbert
"A top-tier genre novel. . . . Biting and incisive. . . . Rubens really has his own thing going here." --Seth Grahame-Smith, author of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
"
"A silly, fun romp across the universe." --"The Wichita Eagle
"
"A rocket-fast, knee-slapping narrative. . . . Lighthearted [and] adventure-filled. . . . Cole's ludicrous exploits keep the laughs coming." --"Publishers Weekly"
"[Rubens] pokes gentle fun at a few of SF's basic assumptions while exploring their acceptance as potential for entertainment." --"The Seattle Times"
"Rubens hits the jackpot with a zanily humorous parody of sf adventure, with tributes to space-opera and Western classics along the way. . . . Recalling the volatile and irreverent humor of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, this madcap journey through space will appeal to Pratchett's readers and fans of such sf film parodies as "Galaxy Quest" and "Space Balls."" --"Library Journal"
