Contraband from Otherspace Audiobook

Contraband from Otherspace: John Grimes, Book 17

Out there, along the outer edge of the galaxy, many strange things can happen, for there time and space undergo strange distortions and "space ghosts" may appear where no ship ought to be. Where Commodore Grimes of the Rim Mamelute was concerned the derelict vessel, so strangely named Distriyir, was no space ghost. It was solid, it was real, and it was very disturbing. For one thing, it had been manned by desperate men and women clad in rags. For another, everything was curiously misplaced, misspelled, somehow wrong, even to the adjustment of seats as if people had tails!

Publisher's Summary

Out there, along the outer edge of the galaxy, many strange things can happen, for there time and space undergo strange distortions and "space ghosts" may appear where no ship ought to be.

Where Commodore Grimes of the Rim Mamelute was concerned the derelict vessel, so strangely named Distriyir, was no space ghost. It was solid, it was real, and it was very disturbing. For one thing, it had been manned by desperate men and women clad in rags. For another, everything was curiously misplaced, misspelled, somehow wrong, even to the adjustment of seats as if people had tails!

All too soon Grimes realized that the truth would be too dreadful to contemplate and that, whatever were the facts, he would have to act at once to blot out both the strange ship and its entire historical continuum, at whatever the cost!

    "Grimes and the Mutant Rats!"

    Grimes saves a Universe from Mutant Rats. Grimes is married! Grimes is back in our Universe. Not a bad book. Not as good as others. What will Grimes do next?
