I still have a copy of this book, printed in the 1980’s, though it’s somewhat beginning to melt and become one with space-time.
Some seriously crazy shit went down in this book! For real, the book is like seven pages long (gross underestimation, Amazon tells me it’s 304! Don’t listen to anything I say I am just a huge liar)
So. John “Jack Shandy” is on his way to avenge his father when the ship he is traveling on is attacked by pirates.
Ok. I think this is one of those “it’s not you, it’s me” reviews, because John Scalzi is beloved by all and this book won a bunch of awards so I am obviously just missing something.
I am reading this book for maybe the sixth or seventh time. Claire, you angry beautiful creature, I will never tire of you.
