It's time again for "Perez's Picks" where our editor Ramiro Perez discusses great new releases. Today: Christopher Cobb's The Slant Six.
Picture a vintage car buff. Now fast-forward to the year 2252 and swap cars for spaceships. That's Loman Phin in The Slant Six. Loman's a washed-up racer with a vintage spaceship (i.e. a rust-bucket). And then he gets the chance of a lifetime. A fortune's on the line if he can transport forty three kilos of human skin, only, that skin's still attached to the lovely Portia McCoy. But Loman isn't the only one in on the game; the whole solar system's out looking for Portia, and they want Loman's blood.
But there's more to it than just that: the book's also got snarky robots, sexy space vampires, death races, a mad king of a dwarf planet, and much more.
If you like sci-fi that takes chances and doesn't pull punches, blast off with Chris Cobb's The Slant Six.
