In space, no one can hear you scheme….

Sometimes piracy just doesn’t pay.

Captain Alexander Outland of the Sixty-Nine (short for Space Vessel 3369, of course) is the best pilot in the galaxy. He’s also a pirate, a smuggler, and loved and loathed by women in umpteen solar systems.  His crew of strays and misfits includes an engineer of dubious sanity, a deposed planetary governor, an annoyingly unflappable Sexbot copilot, and a slinky weapons chief who stubbornly refuses to give the captain a tumble.

Outland just wants to make a decent living skirting the law, but when an invisible space armada starts cutting into his business, he soon finds himself in hot water with the military, the mob, mad bombers, and an extended family of would-be conquerors.  And that’s not counting an occasionally telepathic spy….

Like any sensible scoundrel, he hates heroics.  They’re risky and they don’t pay well.  But to keep his ship and crew in one piece, and make time with a certain hard-to-get weapons chief, he might just have to make an exception—and save the galaxy despite himself!



“Fun! A good old-fashioned sci-fi adventure tale that soars through its universe with the gleeful energy of an atomic rocket ship.”
—A. Lee Martinez, author of In the Company of Ogres and A Nameless Witch

“In the grand tradition of Harry Harrison’s Stainless Steel Rat, G. J. Koch introduces us to Captain Alexander Napoleon Outland and his ribald and vibrant crew taking the universe by storm.... A humorous romp with twists and turns aplenty.”
—Michael A. Stackpole, author of At the Queen’s Command and Of Limited Loyalty

“Laugh out loud, read until you drop. Alexander (the) Outland is my favorite space pirate.”
—Patricia Briggs, author of the Mercy Thompson series.
