Could this be the worst job interview in the entire history of the universe? Possibly. So when Elton D Philpotts lands his dream Space Corps accountancy job he can’t help wondering how it happened. And why.
Somebody in the Space Corps must need him, and they need him bad.

But the work is dull; nothing like the glamour job he expected. Until he sees things he should not have seen: A hidden ledger, dodgy accounting transactions, bogus gate receipts.

And when a whole starship disappears, who are they going to blame?
A frantic race across the Sphere of Influence takes Elton and his hapless band of followers into adventure and dangers none of them could ever have imagined.

Deep Space Accountant is the first book in the forthcoming Sphere of Influence series.

About the author

Mjke was born on the Isle of Man and now lives in the Wirral, UK.

He began writing in his late twenties, but took a break in order to concentrate on accountancy exams. He returned to writing in 2007, and became the first winner of the Jim Baen Memorial Writing competition. He followed that, a year later, by winning the L Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Competition. His science fiction and fantasy short stories have appeared in many print and online venues. He is an active member of SFWA, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, as well as the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) and the British Fantasy Society (BFS).

Mjke is passionate about caravanning, and, writing as Mike Wood, he loves to share his experiences and misadventures through his sofa travel writing.

Mjke has worked as a finance manager for an international passenger transport company, and as a musician, playing alto saxophone and clarinet in big bands and pit orchestras around Merseyside and North Wales. Inevitably, several of his books and stories feature accountants, music and musicians.
