Artemus Withersabout this book: If you're a fan of space opera and have a good sense of humor, you should enjoy The Adventures of Reztap. There's a princess rescue that doesn't turn out as planned, double crosses, traps and other mayhem dogging Tar Reztap and Gorth as they try to make a living as intergalactic traders. They find berserk androids, sewer worms and cryptic relatives trying to hinder their efforts along the way.
Joe McKinney, author of the Dead City series says "Built on a classic rescue story plot, Withers' story proceeds to slay all the sacred cows of science fiction, but does it with such humor, such style, that even a hardened fan can't help but laugh along. The Adventures of Reztap has got the humor of Douglas Adams, the snappy dialogue of Firefly, and all the moral slipperiness of the Stainless Steel Rat, but it is a unique and wonderful story all its own."
I came up with this book based on a nickname I got when I was in high school - Reztap. That single word planted a seed in my mind of intergalactic adventures gone wrong and the rest is history! Well, future history anyway.
