Charlie Hong is on the run from both sides of the law.
He’s spent the last year in hiding, cultivating one last hair-brained scheme to escape his troubles: a clandestine marijuana operation. Just as he’s about to cash in, his cash crop is stolen by a bright light appearing in the night sky. After catching a ride with one of his plants, he finds himself thrown into a world far stranger than anything he could have possibly imagined.
Does the stoned stowaway have what it takes to free the Starseed, a massive living spaceship overflowing with bizarre life forms, from the clutches of a mysterious force field trapping it in Earth’s orbit?
More importantly, before he decides anything, does he have time to light one up?
INTERPLANETARY PRAISE FOR FAR OUT CHRONICLES:
“★★★★★ Tom Sadira’s Far Out Chronicles has restored the galaxy’s faith in Earth’s ability to produce fresh and riveting science fiction. Without it, the Council would have demolished that dirty, backwater planet long ago.” — Emperor Izzug Brutag of the 713th Galactic Council
“★★★★★ The fast-paced, imaginative storytelling really helps get things moving during the weeks-long excretion rituals of Alpha Orionis, if ya know what I mean.” — Blek Ylp, custodial engineer in the Betelgeuse system
“★★★★★ The rip-roaring adventure series Far Out Chronicles kept the G’wark species distracted long enough for us to complete our weapon and wipe out their homeworld. Thanks Earthling!” — Commander Zrauvvurbu of the Essari Rebellion
“★★★★★ …so witty and delightful it made me wish that my processor core was capable of laughter. I have scheduled it to be stored in my memory banks for more nanoseconds than is logical…” — Qu’tron Krix, Prime Instance of the Cyborg Continuum
“★★★★★ The hivemind of Pollux Major loved the Far Out Chronicles so much that we couldn’t wait for more books in the series. We’ve used our forbidden time-jump technology to travel forward in time to get our hands on the complete works of Tom Sadira. All we can say is: it was totally worth the risk of temporal paradox!” — The Hivemind of Pollux Major
Readers have compared the The Far Out Chronicles series to Douglas Adams ' Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Barry J. Hutchison's Space Team series, Robert Heinlein, Ernest Cline, John Scalzi, and James S.A.Corey.
Tom Sadira is known throughout the multiverse as one of most accomplished authors of sci-fi and fantasy to have ever spawned in this sector. He’s been published in journals, anthologies, and collections throughout this galactic quadrant, most of which you’ve never heard of, so just forget I mentioned it. Sadly, his home world of Earth is one of the last planets to catch on.
