This was fun and punny. There are pink elephants. (Not exactly). If you enjoy Douglas Adams, you will probably get a kick out of this. I'm ready for the next in the series ( )

This was a fun romp of a science fiction book. The premise is that the Galactic Trade Federation contacted Earth corporation a few years ago, and we have become trading partners with a whole host of alien species. New trade means new technology, and our hero, Jack Buckston, has founded his Xenotech Support Corporation to fill the tech support needs of all those corporations using this new alien technology.

The action keeps moving, the plot builds on previous incidents, and the stakes keep getting higher. The writing is amusing, with puns and references that those plugged into the science fiction scene today will groan at with a smile.

It was a delight to read! ( )

Fifteen years after Earth joins the Galactic Free Trade Association the planet is flooded with alien technology. Somebody has to support all the new galactic tech and Jack Buckston, President, CEO and sole employee of Xenotech Support Corporation, does his best to keep his clients happy, find true love and prevent interstellar war. Galactic technology has cured cancer, solved the energy crisis, and eliminated global warming--but what do the aliens want from us? They can't get enough Congressional subcommittee broadcasts. They consider them reality comedies! Xenotech Rising is a light-hearted romp and the first book in the Xenotech Support / Galactic Free Trade Association series.
