Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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!

The new Hero of Space

Be ready to laugh till the tears come. Nap's nobility shines thru even though he trys to hide it. Great story with a lot of action and a cargo of laughs.
Andy Caploe really captures the flavor of the book.
Only down side - no sequals as of yet.

Hilarious!

This book is funny enough that I could have laughed throughout most of it - except that the narration was so over-the-top dramatic and serious. Narrator did a good job with the voices, but the rest of the story - all the same - sloooooowwwww and dramaaaatiiiiiiic. That would have been great for parts of the story, but not for ALL of it. I still enjoyed the book, but the narrator made it hard to get going. Once I got used to him, I ignored him and enjoyed the story. Make sure to listen to the sample!

Amusing sci-fi action space opera

Don't get me wrong, Koch is no Douglas Adams, but this is a likeable, amusing sci-fi story which takes the idea of a character like Han Solo and runs with it. Personally, I'd ship out with Captain Outland over Solo any day, he's got the better crew and gets into funnier situations.



Essentially, Alexander Napoleon Outland is a rogue with a woman in every spaceport (usually several women in each one), despite the fact that the one he really wants is his weapons and security officer. She's called "Slinky" and I think that covers everything we need to know about her (though she's brighter than the name might suggest). Together with Randolf, their ultra-nerd mechanic, and "The Governor" they get dumped into a situation where they must outwit a pirate armada bent on taking over the galaxy. Of course, that's not a problem, but it's the getting there that's the fun part.



Oh, and along the way they pick up a copilot who happens to be a converted sexbot, a spy who happens to be a brilliant cook, a military officer who happens to have a universal communicator, and a self-aware scanner. You'll get the hang of it.
