Publisher's Summary

Science to build a starship. Wizardry to take it past light speed. A crew to give it a soul.

The Mobius is a cobbled-together ship with a matching crew. Captain Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy pilot whose crew won't let him fly his own ship. The pilot is his ex-wife, the mechanic is a drunk, and the chief of security is from a predatory species. Instead of a star-drive to travel through the astral space between worlds, the ship's wizard does it by hand.

Mission 1: Salvage Trouble

A salvage mission turns into a rescue, and no good deed goes unpunished. With two refugees onboard, the Mobius crew is hounded by bounty hunters, border patrols, and corporate enforcers.

Mission 2: A Smuggler's Conscience

"Don't open the package." It's the smuggler's credo for good reason. When the Mobius crew takes a peek at their illicit cargo, the entire job takes an about-face.

Mission 3: Poets and Piracy

The Mobius crew gets caught in a turf war between a pirate fleet and a galactic criminal syndicate. The trick is getting everyone out alive (and maybe getting paid in the process).

Mission 4: To Err is Azrin

Sometimes, you can't go home again. When a job takes the crew to their security chief's homeworld, she gets dragged into a familial power struggle. Can the rest of the crew bail her out of an old feud gone horribly wrong?

Television in Book Form

Any additional comments?

A three star book, but one of those rare ones where it's not because it is mediocre, but because it's just a good, albeit forgettable book. "Formulaic and uninspired but well-crafted" is a good phrase for it.

Probably the best thing about it is that this is an omnibus of shorter stories. As such, no book/story outlives it's welcome. Each is much like a television episode, a self-contained story that you can choose to enjoy at your leisure or binge it.

The characters are a bit flat but overall fun. They are typical space fiction archetypes that are put in a new position in each "mission" and you get to watch them work out the problem of the week. The problems range from trying to outrun a much richer and more powerful enemy, to a bit of space pirate action, to learning one of the character's backstory.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a lighter spaceship book (or show). It is an experience rather than some highbrow literature. I for one will continue the series.

Pretty good

Yes, for those you remember the tv shows Fire Fly or Farscape then this book is for you. A large part was entertaining enough that I am buying the remainder in the series. The characters are flawed and the stories are just thrown together but that was the same with those tv shows.

Fun adventure romps

I've grown to like this series. It has a crew of semi crazy never do wells up against a busybody of their own in various escapades. The setting is interesting and the dialog is fantastic.

Enjoyable adventures

Loveable crew of misfits, balanced with peril of jobs they take on that are less than respectable. Good world building around them with rules for travelling etc.

Narrator does great job with all the characters.
