Captain Alexander Outland of the Sixty-Nine (short for Space Vessel 369, of course) is the best pilot in the galaxy. He’s also a pirate, a smuggler, and loved and loathed by women in umpteen solar systems. His crew of strays and misfits includes an engineer of dubious sanity, a deposed planetary governor, an annoyingly unflappable Sexbot copilot, and a slinky weapons chief who stubbornly refuses to give the captain a tumble.
Outland just wants to make a decent living skirting the law, but when an invisible space armada starts cutting into his business, he soon finds himself in hot water with the military, the mob, mad bombers, and an extended family of would-be conquerors. And that’s not counting an occasionally telepathic spy....
Like any sensible scoundrel, he hates heroics. They’re risky and they don’t pay well. But to keep his ship and crew in one piece, and make time with a certain hard-to-get weapons chief, he might just have to make an exception - and save the galaxy in spite of himself!
Andy Caploe's performance as Alexander "Nap" Outlander perfectly pairs with the tongue-in-cheek humor of G. J. Koch's campy space romp. Caploe's husky growl captures the antihero rogue's buoyant snark and swagger, bringing to life Koch's dime novel adventure.
The fast pace of the action-packed narrative is matched in speed by the repartee between the quirky, patched-together crew, peppered with the one-liners that make up libido-driven Nap's internal monologue. The chapters of Alexander Outlander: Space Pirate fly by in a rapid-fire flurry of death-defying escapes, jaunty banter, and pure fun.
