About this ebook

    Blue collar Sci Fi in the vein of Firefly.Running a starship repo company isn’t easy or cheap. It’s just an endless string of fuel costs, ship maintenance, legal red tape, unhappy debt bailers, shady associates and uncooperative dock officials from one end of the galaxy to the other.Nathan Teller owns and operates Milky Way Repossessions, a company that tracks down and repossesses starships. And although he's only managing to break even on his debt, he wouldn’t trade it for anything. (His ex-wife holds that against him. No surprise there.)When Nathan and his crew successfully steal a freighter from the clutches of a particularly tenacious and corrupt dock official, he earns the respect of their high profile employer. Opportunity seems a sure thing.Nathan should be happy. But when that lucrative job op turns into a ransom delivery for a starship crew being held hostage by a cult, he suddenly finds himself pursued by a self-immolating loan shark hell bent on collecting a gambling debt.How will it all turn out? You never know. Especially when Nathan and his Starship repo agents are up against a cult and the mob...

    "I think Milky Way Repo carves out a unique niche in science fiction by presenting protagonists that work hard for a living, sort of a genre of blue collar sci-fi. The world is bigger than them and there isn’t a large fascist government operating against them. In this case, the characters struggle to make ends meet and do so against forces that are relatable; the economy, employers that hold sway over workers, religious elements, and organized crime figures that move in the shadows." -- Michael Prelee, author

Honestly, it was ok. Just couldn't get into it. I wish I could say more, but with fiction...if it doesn't grab me right off, I just can't deal with spending the time on it.
Third-party review
A good sci-fi, adventure story, without getting involved in a lot of sci-fi jargon. It' basically a repossession story that could take place at any time. Interesting characters. The story reads very easily. Why not 5 stars? For me, Hyperion is a 5 star story.
Third-party review
A very enjoyable light SF read on a par with "Han Solo at Star's End" with plenty of action and likable characters. There is even growth for the main character of Nathan Teller, the owner of the repo company.
