Waiting For More

By Jim Zoetewey, editor, author of The Legion of Nothing

Jul 2, 2016: I didn’t read the first book in this series (Pay Me, Bug!) until it was published as an ebook. I’m not sure why. This time around I’m reading every post as it appears and wishing Chris updated more quickly.

If you liked Pay Me, Bug!, everything that you liked is still there: the amoral smuggler captain, the crew (even the bug), the complex political situation created by the previous book, and still more that I can’t post without spoiling the surprise.

Excellently done!

By M.C.A. Hogarth, author of Earthrise

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.
