Enjoy a humorous look at life in space through the eyes of some colorful characters in this collection of five unique sci-fi tales by Christina Engela, spanning everything from adventure to suspense to comedy and then back again!

“It’s refreshing to read some old-school action sci-fi that works more on the story than the plausibility of the sciences in it.” – Anike Kirsten, author of “Of Beasts And Men”.

“Christina Engela has one of the most unique and captivating styles I’ve encountered in science fiction. Elements of the thriller, fantasy/horror and big dollops of Douglas Adamsesque humor combine with hard science to make a winning and highly readable blend.” – Alex S. Johnson, author of The Doom Hippies.
