Publisher's Summary

Over half of Earth's population has left the planet, mainly as contract workers for aliens, and the homeworld is losing relevance to the emigrants. The EarthCent president takes on the task of making sure that humanity isn't permanently stuck in a rut of low-skilled labor. Can the ambassador put aside her new-found obsession with the Galactic Free Press crossword puzzle and help save the day?

More please!

Well crud, I’m nearly caught up on this series. As anyone who has followed my reviews will know, this is a travesty. What will I do when I don’t have my monthly hit of feel-good?

What’s left to say? This series is great. This one seems to really be the mark that is transitioning on generation of characters to the next. I’ve seen this done in other series, and I can’t say it is always handled well. This one, thankfully, does handle it well. My best guess is that this is because it really holds true to its roots. And I for one cannot wait to see where it goes from here.

Again, for the ninth time now, I recommend this series to people who like feel good books, humorous scifi, or slice of life.
