My Other Car is a Spaceship - Reviews


This military/space opera sci-fi thriller has received almost a hundred glowing reviews from readers! Here are just a few of them.


If you like nearly nonstop action, good guys having to overcome nearly impossible odds, pirates, aliens, space battles, clearly defined characters, and really evil bad guys, then this book is for you.

  • “Despite the rather silly title, this is an enjoyable read. … I found it more intriguing tha(n) I had thought and our heroes’ hopeless resistance to the pirate captors made for a damn good story. As with all space opera books, you will have to suspend disbelief at times, but that takes nothing away from the adventure. Worth reading.”—I. Buchanan (Amazon UK)
