I confess that if I'd only had the blurb to go by I most likely never would have read this book ... the description made it sound like a lame low-budget space movie from several decades ago (and not one of the so-bad-it's-brilliant ones like "Dark Star"). But, fortunately, it was listed in the Recommended Books column in the November issue of Galaxy's Edge with enthusiasm and a far more appealing description. And Galaxy's Edge didn't lie ... there's a very good, fun novel hiding behind that less-than-appealing blurb (I don't blame the blurb writer ... it's really not a story that's easy to describe well) and I'm certainly going to be reading volume two in the series when it's published. :-)

Guess I need to cruise through my back issues of Galaxy's Edge and see if there's any other hidden gems in the Recommended Books ...
