Product Description

Product Description

Beyond Uranus is the first of a trilogy of four or more books telling the ripping space yarns and illuminating times of an always late to work teacher and heroic on-line gamer.

The wrong kind of life, in the wrong kind of job, leads Roy to emotionally subsist on lager, pizza and on-line gaming. A fantastical opportunity presents him with a chance to boldly go, where others have trod before. Joining the crew of a mysterious Earth Station, Roy becomes a space pilot working for the galactic ‘UN’ shielding the Earth from an inappropriate first contact.

With a group of friends and an extraordinary personal computer he explores forbidden areas of the Station and excessively discovers that an alcohol ban doesn’t cover the whole of it. Meanwhile, rogue pilot Dr. John D’Eath has iniquitous plans to kill Roy but is thrown off the station when his plot to frame him for an attack backfires. And Roy finds the love of his life when he meets a beautiful red-head and loves the tinge of ginge in her.

One day Roy attempts to shunt a mysterious freighter away from Earth and his indestructible ship is promptly destroyed, with himself being captured. Rescue comes from the person he least expects, which leads to him discover some shocking, hidden truths.

Some 85,000 words help tell this humorous tale, peppered with bar-room philosophy and sprinkled with adult language.

HASH(0xa2e3ef78) out of 5 stars I HATE SCI-FI Jan. 12 2014
By Motherskiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
.....but I honestly enjoyed this book. I want to compare it to "Hitchhiker' s" but that wouldn't be fair to the author . The Universe he has created is a lot more plausible than Adams'. I didn't get lost in a bunch of science wah wah wah talk. And even though he is a Brit I caught every joke and sarcastic remark. I will confess that my favourite character is Adams. I just downloaded the second book in the trilogy and can't wait to see what Gary will be wearing!!

HASH(0xa2c6c1e0) out of 5 stars Chocked Full Jan. 5 2014
By Val Phelps - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a very interesting read. I was able to read about a chapter a night which is what I was looking for. I do feel there was a lot of small things put in the first book that leaves a lot passages to go down. This abundance made me worry that it was too much up front, but now knowing there is a sequel I feel a little better.

HASH(0xa2c6c1a4) out of 5 stars fun to read Feb. 2 2014

Enjoyed this a lot, nice and looney. Good cast of characters, funny and most certainly not boring at all. Will have to get the next installment.
HASH(0xa2c6c498) out of 5 stars Decent but not great May 15 2014
By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com

Okay, I enjoyed the story enough to finish the book, but the writing is a bit tortured at times - especially some of the dialog. On the other hand, there are some funny parts that are pure genius ("Does anybody fart to talk?" ....).

There's also the complete improbability of the capture - and I expected Zaphod (HGTTG) to be the person to perform the rescue.

It was decent enough though that I think I'll check out the sequel.
HASH(0xa2c6c4f8) out of 5 stars A grand adventure for all ages July 13 2015

A witty an charming science fiction yarn. Appropriate for anyone over 15. I'm looking forward to ready all the upcoming volumes in the series.
