Simon of Space by Cheeseburger Brown

 

Simon Fell has awakened at a foreign star with no memory of his former life. He stands to inherit the legacy of a self he has never known. In a complex and frightening world of pioneer planets, clashing cultures and esoteric robots, one lost man will face a battery of tribulations, from his ignorance of basic customs to his entanglement in the machinations of interstellar politics. These are the adventures of N. Simonithrat Fell: hyperspatial amnesiac and gentleman-about-the-galaxy. Space will never be the same.

Note: Simon of Space contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.
