Publisher's Summary

The year is 2252 and Loman Phin is in trouble.

A washed-up channelship racer turned freelancer, he hits pay dirt with his latest mission: a fortune is on the line if he can transport 43 kilograms of human skin to a remote villa on Pluto's moon, Nix. Little does he know his very life is at stake when he gets caught up in an ancient feud, chased by a space vampire, and forced into a death-race by the king of Ceres.

Meanwhile, danger is always hot on his heels in the form of a massive space freighter out for Loman's blood. With just his wits, his friends, and his beat-up cruiser, the Slant Six, Loman sets out on the most dangerous adventure of his life.

    Story
    "Buckle up and hang on!"

    This isn't your grandad's sci-fi. Loman's a down on his luck channelship racer who gets the deal of a lifetime, and this gets him hot water fast. Author Cobb pulls no punches. His writing fast and visceral, serves up hard-hitting sci-fi with no brakes or safety harness. Narrator Weight delivers an outstanding performance.

    The characters. Apart from being memorable they're well written and enjoyable.

    The robot, "Little Mann."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Story
    "Great story, great narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Slant Six to be better than the print version?

    Both versions are great, but I love Matt Weight's narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Slant Six?

    I loved the death-race on Ceres. It's like NASCAR but in pace, and with really high stakes.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Weight’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have (The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate). His performances are consistently excellent.


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

    It's extremely thrilling, but there are also some really funny parts as well as touching moments between Loman and Portia.

    "A fantastic science fiction ride"
    What did you love best about The Slant Six?

    The story. It's exciting.


    Which character – as performed by Matt Weight – was your favorite?

    I've got to say Loman Phin, the main character. He's portrayed as a washed up guy who's been given one more chance and can't blow it, or else.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Strap in. Sit down. You're in for a ride.
