"A science fiction book your grandmother will love - if she's a lustful, violent lady."-Stephen Colbert"A rocket-fast, knee-slapping narrative. . . . Lighthearted [and] adventure-filled. . . . Cole's ludicrous exploits keep the laughs coming."-"Publishers Weekly""Rubens hits the jackpot with a zanily humorous parody of sf adventure, with tributes to space-opera and Western classics along the way. . . . Recalling the volatile and irreverent humor of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, this madcap journey through space will appeal to Pratchett's readers and fans of such sf film parodies as "Galaxy Quest" and "Space Balls"."-"Library Journal"
