Publisher's Summary

Meet Captain Quasar, a cross between James T. Kirk and Dudley Do-Right - except in Quasar's case, things seldom ever go right....
Join Captain Bartholomew Quasar and the crew of the Effervescent Magnitude in this hilarious collection of short stories as they confront bands of nefarious space pirates, cantankerous bandits, exotic aliens, devious powers of persuasion, mysterious ghosts from the past, deep space identity crises, a runaway hyper-speed train, an insidious computer virus, and a villain with the fastest thumbs in the quadrant.

They'll make a statue to me one day!

Bouncing from episode to story to quick thought, like the Rocky and Friends cartoon shows of my youth, these nuggets of Quasar-tastic hubris give nod to such heroes of yesteryear as Mighty Mouse, Underdog, and Superman. Some chapters are little more than sound bites, others provide a full story that enhances the universe being built. All poke fun at the "here I come to save the day" action figure hero, Captain Quasar, while "taking the Mickey out of" most of the space dramas ever produced from before Buck Rogers to beyond the stars.

These tales are designed to be sampled and savored, not read through as a novel; perfect for a five or ten minute break (some are a bit longer). Each is written as if you are unfamiliar with the series, repeating with glee the descriptions of various characters. Narrator E.M. Carberry romps through them with all the joie-de-vivre and self-important smugness of our hero, gleaming like Captain Quasar's teeth as he strikes his favorite Starfarer pose, then voicing Hank in a convincing growl and giving Bill, the Janitor cum Chief Engineer, a laid back California hipster vibe. The broader your fields of reference, the more Easter eggs you are going to find lurking in the deft prose.

Campy, Fun And Highly Entertaining!

Captain Bartholomew Quasar, Starfaring Adventures by Milo James Fowler is a collection of short stories focusing on the life and times of Captain Bartholomew Quasar and his crew.  The stories center around the Captain and his antics as he encounters space pirates, aliens, ghosts, and so much more!  The stories are very short and fun – this is a spoof of Star Trek (the series from the 60's) and the movie Galaxy Quest.  Fun, light yet intriguing.  A perfect listen after a hard day!

E.M. Carberry performed the audiobook keeping the tone light, energetic and fun!  Much like the story, the narrator was appropriately campy as well.  How he was able to deliver some of the lines without cracking up, I’m not sure but he was a true professional!

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.

A wonderful book if you need some fun, campy entertainment.  Guaranteed to move you to laughter!
