Space Team: The Search for Splurt
By Barry J. Hutchison
The third part of the laugh-out-loud sci-fi adventure series from the author critics are calling ‘the new Douglas Adams.’
Cal Carver, petty-criminal turned space adventurer, is on a suicide mission – and he really hates suicide missions. But this time it’s to save his best buddy, Splurt, who has been taken prisoner by the the elderly assassin, Lady Vajazzle, and the evil Zertex corporation.
When they discover that the ship carrying Splurt never made it to Zertex, their search leads them through a wormhole to a mysterious planet unlike any they have seen before. Will they survive this strange new world and finally find their friend? And, more importantly, does he even want to be found?
Packed with gladiator battles, angry bees, a big thing blowing up, and the return of the galaxy’s oldest assassin, Space Team: The Search for Splurt is the rip-roaring conclusion to the first Space Team trilogy.
Praise for Space Team“Space Team is one of those rare gems, a genuinely funny science fiction story that manages to entertain from beginning to end.” – SFBook.com “I rarely give out five-star reviews for books – generally save those for life-changing reads- but I think Space Team, for what it aims to be, deserves the highest praise I can deliver.” – Amazon Review “I had to stop reading because I laughed too hard to see.” – Amazon Review “This is hardboiled space humour at its best.” – BookWitch “Be prepared to laugh out loud – don’t read in places where this will be embarrassing!” – Amazon Review
