A kooky space adventure novel, cobbled together from short excerpts from the lives of Phelan and Droz, kooky space adventurers.
Kurt Gerhardt Droz is a competent, well-respected captain in the ECI Exploratory Scouts. He’s been responsible for twelve full system probes, and the strategic acquisition of six of the lost expeditionary fleets of Earth. He tries to do his best for his manager, a giant hologram with a bad comb-over.
That’s just his day job. Outside of work, Droz is an everyday guy; he puts on his hazard suit one leg at a time, like anyone else. He hangs out with his space monster friends, getting drunk in every bar he can find, trying to avoid interplanetary conflicts wherever possible.
Unfortunately, his day job is infringing on his leisure time: Home Office has saddled him with a 7-year-old clone from Historical. Worse still, this clone might just be the key to Earth’s salvation. Too bad he’s a whiny, know-it-all loser who knows more about ancient pop-culture than space travel.
