PAY ME, BUG!

A great space opera fix

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 5, 2011: I remain an indifferent reader of caper novels and am not particularly enamored of ruffians or dashing ne’er-do-wells, but Wright made me care about his cast of unlikely characters. The dialogue is superb, the characterization spot-on and the plot moves with both speed and poise, just as it should in a novel of this kind. It’s funny, it’s entertaining, it’s extremely well-done. Plus (and a big plus it is), the formatting is clean and elegant, not always a given online or in e-books.
