Publisher's Summary

Colin’s supposed to deliver a prophecy. Problem is, he forgot what to say....

Evangelist Brock T. Hanson believes Colin Douglass to be the prophet he’s been waiting for his whole life, the man who will lead the faithful back to Earth and trigger the most momentous event since Creation itself. But there’s a problem.   

Actually, there are several.   

First, Colin Douglass himself doesn’t believe a word of it and is the kind of chap who’d rather stay at home with a nice cup of tea than cross the galaxy on some foolish, idealistic crusade. Second, Earth lies within the territory of the Transhackers, a race of cold-blooded, trigger-happy cyborgs who don’t easily forgive those who trespass against them. And third, Colin Douglass might not even survive a trip to Earth because he is succumbing to a life-threatening illness.  

When Hanson kidnaps Colin and takes him to Earth anyway, Tyresa Jak sets off in hot pursuit to rescue Colin before either the Transhackers or his disease can destroy him.   

The rollicking space adventure continues in this hilarious sequel to Interstellar Caveman. The only way you’ll stop listening is when you fall off the chair from laughter.

Worth a listen despite the narrator

"ty-ray-za"
"en-sign"
The odd pronunciations of the narrator, along with the fact that all male voices sound the same and everybody who is shouting or speaking forcefully sounds identical as well, make this a little bit hard to listen to. however, if you can get past that, this book is a great book reminiscent of 2001 a space Odyssey, and Stargate. Definitely worth a listen!

Great followup!!

This was a great continuation of the story. I loved it just as much as the first book. I especially loved how he upped the stakes and expanded the universe he created. I liked the Transhackers and the Transhackers planet. Steve West was awesome again. I hope there is little wait time for the next in the series. This has become one of my favorite Space comedys of all time! Just an enjoyable listen. :D

Still interested.

I listened to the first book and was hooked. I enjoyed it. The characters developed nicely and they drew me into the story. Now this book truly peaked my interest in what the group does next. Except for a few cuss words, it’s pretty well recommended for everyone. :)

A good sequel

Brilliant narration by Steve west again
The continuation of Colin the insurance agent catapulted into the future again provided a great premise for interesting adventures.

Just as good as the first... no... better!

I'm a fan. Totally sold. I'm a fan. Beecher is great. West is great. Already pre-ordered the third on Amazon.

A great follow up to Interstellar Caveman!

Faulty Prophet is a fun and twisted sci-fi comedy reminiscent of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker series. It features the continuing misadventures of Colin Douglass, who has been stumbling from one misfortune to another since his awakening from cryogenic sleep. Colin isn't anything close to your classic sci-fi hero and manages to get himself in and out of absurd situations by dumb luck.

I think this sequel to Interstellar Caveman was every bit as good as the first book. Both books use Colin's experiences in the future as a satirical take on the ridiculousness of the "modern" age. Most of the jokes are lighthearted and creative, but they could sometimes get ridiculous enough to distract from the story or highlight the implausibility of the futuristic setting. Overall, I found the entertainment value of the humor and jokes to outweigh the absurdity of the situations that Colin found himself in, but true die-hard science fiction fans may find it a bit too much.

Special thanks to Aethon Books, who provided me this book free of charge at my request.

CIOS

chronic irony overload syndrome: predicting that success won't make you happy and then finding out that it's true.

Don't miss the excellent send up of Facebook and "inventor": " I did it by myself, nobody helped me ..except that government grant, except infrastructure, except..."

Real writers don't get recognition do they?

A new favourite author/narrator combo

I have trouble these days finding great stories with amazing voice overs, it's either one or the other in most cases, Karl and Steve bring this series to life, loved the first book and loved this from start to finish. Eagerly waiting for book #3!
