Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it's not easy being a mutant thug.

The space station Belvaille, once the center of civilization, is nearly deserted because of the new government's policies. Hank makes do by working odd jobs, but he isn't sure how long those, or the city, can last.

However, there are still some people trying to scratch out a (dis)honest living on Belvaille. Hank concocts a plan to save the city: steal from the countless transports and freighters that pass through the System.

In the meantime, Hank falls in with a tough crowd of freedom fighters who seem determined to overthrow the government. The team goes on exceedingly dangerous assignments, with Hank taking the brunt of the danger.

As if things weren't bad enough, the Navy set up residence in the System, a powerful alien dignitary is scheduled to arrive, and Hank's absurdly-competent butler states that his robotic species may declare war on Hank's home.

It's up to Hank to fix the problems, find out who is doing what and why, and to try and earn a little cash in the process.

Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hard Luck Hank: Robot Farts to be better than the print version?

Yes. The narrator is the voice of Hank. When I read the books I hear his voice. 'Chaaapter 3ee'

Any additional comments?

If you love the other books you'll love this one. We keep coming back for Hank.

Great fun, prepare to laugh.

I love Hank... In like, not that way, but like in the way a person loves a good plate of sausages, and a beer. But only really good beer.

One of the most original series I've found. I'll buy every Hank novel they make!

Hard Luck Hank Continues to Deliver

Any additional comments?

It is surprising how even after 6 books, each book is completely different from the previous ones. There are a few old characters that stick around and new ones that show up. You know you are going to get Hank being a dumb lug and brute forcing his way through the current crisis. But you know what? That's fine.

Basically if you liked the last book, you'll really like this one. Steven Campbell has clearly learned his lesson with the flop that was the third book (and lesser extent fourth book) and continues to grow the series and give us more of what we love.

I still recommend this book to about anyone that likes humor and space fiction.

Good ole Hank!

This series needs to be a tv show or a movie or something. It's too good to just be a book.

The newest story was just as good, just as Hank filled action and eating and misfortune as the others and still unique and original.

The Best Hank Yet!

I don't know how, but Steven Campbell made this book the best Hank yet.

Just a fun read with good characters and an interesting story.

I really liked the other HLH books, but in this one the characters are more developed and even more lovable. As always Liam Owen does a great reading.

Best so far

There's few books that I enjoyed more than the Hard Luck Hank series. This may be the best one yet.

Best one yet

First Liam Owen - Narrator most excellent and THE voice of Hank. Nuff Said. Now Stephen Campbell the author. His stories have really matured in writing style and plot line complexity while remaining hilariously funny. After checking Audible daily for two weeks, I bought this book at 5AM and began listening immediately. Stephen does not disappoint. I just wish he would hurry up and finish the next book soon. He has to have had at least a week to work on it...

Brilliant

Yet another good book and so well read you can visualise the characters as Liam Owen says the lines.. awesome!
Delovo and Hank are just brilliant. I honestly feel sad that I will have to wait a long while for the story to continue.
