A not-quite epic science fiction adventure about a down-on-his luck galactic pilot caught in a cross-galaxy struggle for survival! Space travel just isn't what it used to be. With the invention of Quantum Teleportation, space heroes aren't needed anymore.

When one particularly unlucky ex-adventurer masquerades as famous pilot and hate figure Jacques McKeown, he's sucked into an ever-deepening corporate and political intrigue.

Between space pirates, adorable deadly creatures, and a missing fortune in royalties, saving the universe was never this difficult! 

From the creator of Mogworld and Jam! Benjamin Richard  Yahtzee  Croshaw is a British-Australian comedic writer, video game journalist, author, and video game developer. He is perhaps best known for his acerbic video game review series, Zero Punctuation, for The Escapist.

GALAXY BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Apparently, careers in galactic adventuring are just not what they used to be. Think far less ‘Space-Hero’ and rather more (destitute) ‘Space-Chauffeur’. So, when one luckless, cynical pilot gets offered easy money pretending to be some other guy he leaps at the chance. Only to find out he’s impersonating the pilot Jacques McKeown; a man both universally famous… and hated within his profession. Who knew identity fraud could get so out of hand?

Overall, this was a fun read with some enjoyable characters and dialogue. The reluctant ‘hero’ in question is as much along for the ride as the reader and has plenty of snark to spare in the process. I would recommend this novel for readers that want to try an easy-to-read Sci-Fi adventure that doesn’t take itself or its characters too seriously. – Tamara
