Description

If you asked Andi Turbot whether she had anything in common with Flash Gordon she’d say no, emphatically. Saving the world is for dynamic, go-ahead, leaders of men and while it would be nice to see a woman getting involved for a change, she believes she could be the least well equipped being in her galaxy for the job.

Then her best friend, Eric, reveals that he is an extraterrestrial. He’s not just any ET either. He’s Gamalian: seven-foot, lobster-shaped and covered in Marmite-scented goo. Just when Andi's getting used to that he tells her about the Apocalypse and really ruins her day.

The human race will perish unless Eric’s Gamalian superiors step in. Abducted and trapped on an alien ship, Andi must convince the Gamalians her world is worth saving. Or escape from their clutches and save it herself.

Q - Who would like this book?
A - Anyone who likes a British comedy story and sci fi. This is a first contact space opera with a psychic alien hero and a strong female lead - she's a bit of an epic woman hero. Hopefully if you like a young adult alien stories, action novel humour and good teen science fiction books you will enjoy this fast-paced sci fi story. If a British humor and comedy is your thing especially one starring a funny girl lead this book may suit you, although it works just as well as a world satire novel.

Q - Why is this book special who’s your favourite character?
A - Lots of readers (so far) like Andi Turbot because she’s witty. She’s more than a funny female lead though; she's an epic woman hero - a strong heroine. But she's also easy to identify with in many respects, especially if you feel you don't quite fit in. She is telpathic for starters, a psychic female and of course she's gay, but only incidentally so, her sexuality isn't the point of the book. If you like a lgbt psychic female protagonist, though, Andi Turbot is kind of good. She is witty and sassy in typical British comedy story heroine style. Then there's Eric, a lobster-shaped galactic scifi species, our psycic alien hero and foil for Andi's humorous nature. If you like a bit of action and adventure, scifi comedy and humor and general funny antics - especially in the British comedy tradition - you may like Eric.

If you love B-Movies as much as I do and don't mind someone poking a bit of gentle fun at them, you may well enjoy this, also if you like books about Armageddon or the Apocalypse.

In a nutshell, it's a British comedy story and a work of funny paranormal science fiction. That’s not really a nutshell, is it? But I hope you know what I mean and that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Thanks for reading,

MTM
