The Sheriff of Yrnameer
by Michael Rubens
This book is definitely of the Douglas Adams genre, weird aliens with very familiar attitudes and banter. As Cole, our hero, tries to make good on a debt to avoid execution by ovipositor, he travels to Yrnameer, a peaceful planet (but not for long), one of the few as yet without a corporate sponsor. Hilarious aliens, sharp-witted banter, and imaginative situations (delivering a cargo of freeze-dried orphans?) keep the laughs coming throughout.
Story 3, Craft 4, Humor 4. Highly recommended. Click title above to see the book on Amazon.
