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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Sci-Fi comedy at it's best."
    If you could sum up Hard Luck Hank: Robot Farts in three words, what would they be?

    I'm NOT Fat


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm well into middle age and Campbell makes me laugh robustly every time. I don't cheer at sporting events. I don't wave my hands at church. In fact you won't typically know I'm even in the room. But Campbell makes me belly laugh just like the National Lampoon movies did back in the 70's.


    Any additional comments?

    Campbell is great at this genre. This isn't rocket science. Well, it has rockets and it has science - but they don't go together. And come on - it has "FARTS" right there in the title. If you can't appreciate that - this is not for you. Steer clear and go back to literature. this is meant to be light-hearted humor at it's best. Paraphrasing Hank - "Did she just call me fat with her dying breath? Who does that?"

    Story
    "Better Than Pratchett"

    This is by far the funniest series I have ever read or listened to. The story is pretty standard as far as plot is concerned. But the humor is top notch. The sarcasm, wit, jokes & everything about it is just plain hilarious. And clean. With the exception of a handful of rather minor swear words, it is mild, clean comedy. And even the "sex scene" is very mild, non descriptive humor that would make a Puritan at least crack a smile. I laughed out loud several times and chuckled so many times I lost count.
    And the narration couldn't be better. Perfect timing and delivery. He sounds like Hard Luck Hank should sound. He is hard Luck Hank. I don't believe a better narrator could have been picked. The only negative comments I can think of are why did it have to end and when is the next book coming out on Audible?

    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.
