Space Captain SmithIn the 25th Century the British Space Empire faces the gathering menace of the evil ant soldiers of the Ghast Empire hive hell bent on galactic domination and the extermination of all humanoid life Isambard Smith is the suare jawed courageous and somewhat asinine new commander of the battle damaged light freighter John Pym destined What would you get if an author like George MacDonald Fraser wrote a steampunk novel with space opera undertones that was one part The Pyrates one part King Solomon's Mines and two parts Firefly the TV series I don't know either but it could conceivably be something like Space Captain Smith At least this book doesn't take itself too seriously which counts in its favour when the one liners and innuendos start coming And come they doThe long and short of it is Space Captain Smith gets his first space ship commission and sets out on a secret mission of sorts His motley crew consists of a fugitive android sex toy and an alien who takes pleasure in decapitating and dismembering folk Of course there is a lot that Smith hasn't been told regarding the circumstances he'll be facing and things go very south from around page 3 of the novel It's great fun of course as our hapless heroes face alien hordes cultists void sharks and probably the worst of all a corrupt planet governorI really enjoyed this If I had to draw a comparison of sorts I'd say this series is doing for Science Fiction what the Jig The Goblin series Goblin uest did for Fantasy Space Captain Smith is followed by God Emperor of Didcot
