Hal Spacejock Omnibus One, by Simon Haynes
Have you ever wanted to toss your computer gently out a window? Now imagine if it could talk to you and move your stuff around when you weren’t looking. That’s how Hal Spacejock feels about his robot sidekick, Clunk, and for good reason. But just like your computer, there’s one big problem with tossing him out an airlock.
Hal would be completely lost without him.
Hal Spacejock runs a cargo business, schlepping freight from one side of the galaxy to the other, and Clunk keeps up with everything. Customers, manifests, destinations, schedules. Everything Hal hates about the business. Which is pretty much all of it.
Every once in a while (by which we mean about every 5 minutes), Hal makes the mistake of not listening to his more organized half, landing himself in an ever deepening mess of unpaid docking fees and mobsters who want to shoot him on sight. It’s a hilarious ride from the first page to the last, and we love every one of them.
Get the first three, plus a bonus short story, for only $0.99 for a limited time. Honestly, the bargain is just ridiculous.
From the publisher:
Hal Spacejock Omnibus One contains the first three full-length novels in the series (A Robot Named Clunk, Second Course & Just Desserts) PLUS a bonus short story: Hal Spacejock Visit.
Set in the distant future, where humanity spans the galaxy and robots are second-class citizens, the Hal Spacejock series will strike a chord with fans of Red Dwarf and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, while forging its own off-beat path through the cosmos.
“Riddled with slapstick humour and glib one-liners” – Courier Mail
“I read it at a sitting and couldn’t put it down. The relationship between Hal and Clunk has matured into a smooth, polished, very satisfying double act. My compliments to the chef.” – Tom Holt
“It’s hilarious. Go buy it.” – Us. We said that. Just now.
