Publisher's Summary

Chuck never thought too deeply about whether aliens existed - not until Jopp, an intergalactic transport pilot, drunkenly crashed on Earth and tried to steal his truck.
Now Chuck finds himself unwittingly roped into helping Jopp work off a debt to the universe's most powerful corporation, the Prime Partners Intergalactic Consortium. Through a series of mishaps and misfortune, the duo find themselves in possession of a mysterious black case. In order to survive, they must fend off murderous marauders, an interplanetary police force, and a peculiar crime boss and escape a backwater planet inhabited by alien hillbillies. It's a big and scary universe out there, and Chuck and Jopp will be damned if they're going to face it sober.

Misadventures in Space

The publisher's summary makes this book seem like the story of a couple of booze-hounds bumbling through space-bars and open space and the humorous antics that ensue. It's not. It's more of a sci-fi action adventure, involving a space-napped human and the alien space-hauler pilot, who got him in the whole mess in the first place, as they have one misadventure after another; including being hunted by space-pirates, being declared the most wanted criminals in the galaxy, being arrested, interrogated and imprisoned, by the interplanetary space force, escaping prison and going on the run... all the while, trying to figure out why the only cargo, in their spacecraft's massive cargo hold, is a mysterious black suitcase that they can't open and that everyone seems to want... and why is everyone, they run into, trying to get them liquored up or trying to kill them? All of this interspersed with occasional wisecracks, merciless haranguing, clever comebacks, popular sci-fi references, drunken shenanigans and the odd barroom brawl.

Overall, an enjoyable read.
