After saving the grim and gritty alien city of Down Here from something big, mean, and mind-bendingly horrible, Dan is looking forward to unwinding in the closest available bar. Annoyingly, the universe has other ideas. Instead, Dan finds himself investigating a cheating husband, two horrible murders, and the potential enslavement of everyone in the galaxy. With his caseload stretching his woefully limited detective skills, his car in pieces, and the whole "being dead" thing not doing him any favors, Dan has no choice but to ask his friends for help.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author continues his humorous asides throughout it, while maintaining the suspense and adventure. Absurd at times, but always entertaining. another fun offering in this series. If this is your first introduction, do yourself a favor and read the first book first. They're better that way.

In an alien city torn apart by crooked cops and ruthless criminals, private detective Dan Deadman specializes in cases unusual and bizarre. Sure, he doesn't smell great, and he's technically been dead for quite some time, but if you've got a rampaging Hell-beast tearing up your street, or a portal to another dimension appearing in your bathroom, Dan's your man. After saving a mysterious young woman named Ollie from the clutches of something big, slimy, and unpleasant, Dan gets entangled in a missing child case.

Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

Galaxy outlaws is a series of novels and novellas comprising over 80 hours listening. I found it to be a fantastic value, and although I could only listen to eight or nine hours – approximately a novels worth, at a time. I always came back to it to see what happened next. It's an interesting universe, I look forward to seeing what the author does next.

After discovering just how filled with magic, intrigue, and adventure the parahuman world of being an undead American can be, Fredrick Frankford Fletcher did exactly what was expected - he became a certified parahuman accountant. Myths and legends, as it turns out, are not so great at taking appropriate deductions and keeping their receipts, and Fred is more than happy to return to a life others view as woefully dull, expanding his accounting business to cater to various monsters.

This is book 2 in the series. I quite liked it. Fred, our friendly vampire accountant, continues to do his thing, while managing to develop more as both a vampire and a person. Do start the series at book 1, as while this book can stand alone you miss a lot of you try that way. I look forward to the next few books in the series. Enjoy.

A magical serial killer is on the loose, and gelatinous, otherworldly creatures are infesting the English countryside. Which is making life for the Ministry of Occultism difficult, because magic is supposed to be their best kept secret. After centuries in the shadows, the Ministry is forced to unmask, exposing the country's magical history - and magical citizens - to a brave new world of social media, government scrutiny, and public relations.

This is a stand-alone novel. You can pick this up in any sequence, as like most of Mr. Croshaw's work, it has a well thought out mythos within whatever fantasy constraints he has chosen. Unlike several of his other works, this one clearly asks for a sequel as a number of questions are hinted at but not quite answered. As always you'll laugh, and moan and groan along with the characters. I quite enjoyed it.

Cal Carver's space team is broke. When they pick up a distress signal from a luxury space cruiser, they think their luck might be about to change. And it does; sadly, not in the way they'd hoped. Someone has detonated a time bomb aboard the cruiser - an experimental device designed to shatter time itself. As the team passes through the fragments, their personal timelines begin moving at very different speeds, and an ageing Cal is forced to live out decades aboard the ship surrounded by his now statuelike crewmates and the mutated, inbred descendants of the cruiser's former inhabitants.

A different emphasis in the preceding books in the series, but still a lot of fun. Don't look for character development here, or even tremendous amounts of combat. Still a lot of fun, and a slightly different Weber-esk take on Space combat. A good completion to this series, yet clearly left open-ended for more to come one day.

Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort. One fateful night - different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful - Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos of the parahuman world.

When the vampire accountant finds himself a girlfriend, things just kind of get weird. It's a bunch of interrelated shorts, and just plain a lot of fun. If the premise sounds even vaguely interesting, I think you'll really enjoy it. I recommended it.
