"Good comic science fiction is rarer than hen's teeth. This was a fun read."

Kelly Frank is EarthCent's top diplomat on Union Station, but her job description has always been a bit vague. The pay is horrible and she's in hock up to her ears for her furniture, which is likely to end up in a corridor because she's behind on rent for her room. Sometimes she has to wonder if the career she has put ahead of her personal life for fifteen years is worth it.

When Kelly receives a gift subscription to the dating service that's rumored to be powered by the same benevolent artificial intelligence that runs the huge station, she decides to swallow her pride and give it a shot. But as her dates go from bad to worse, she can only hope that the supposedly omniscient AI is planning a happy ending.

Very Enjoyable

It’s a rare moment when an old SF reader discovers a really good writer that they’d never heard of before. This is what happened when I opened “Date Night.” The novel traces the struggles of the hapless but likeable Kelly both to hold together her job as Acting Ambassador, despite her title being read as “Pretending to be ambassador” by half the aliens on the station, and get a successful date while not being thrown out of her apartment.

Well written, funny and rare

If you would like something genuinely humorous, that gives you a sunny, optimistic, warm inside feeling (and god knows I really need that some days) you should pick this up. Like Terry Pratchett, not in writing style or plot, but in the way you just feel better for reading it. The kids hustling people as incarnations of Eliza Doolittle’s flower girl (based on a 3D immersive version of My Fair Lady) are particularly hilarious. For some reason people seem to rate “grim and gritty” over “humorous” in the writing stakes – but humorous writing is so much rarer. There’s a lot of miserablist writing around for every PG Wodehouse. Good value, that makes my tube journey a little more bearable.

A Compelling Future Universe

This science fiction comedy creates a compelling future world with some really interesting elements – especially the alien lifeforms which inhabit it. This was a very easy read and the author used light, clever humour that everyone should enjoy. The main human characters were, for me, the only reason I didn’t award this five stars. Neither really seemed driven to a particular goal and were more swept along by the everyday life on the space station. I would have preferred a little more spark in one or other of them. However, the ending was enjoyably crazy and I will definitely be tempted to purchase the next book in the series.

A PG-13 totally safe to read at work story. It has humour and doesn’t take itself seriously but is thoroughly enjoyable.

Give it a try

I’m not quite sure why I bought this book as its very different from the type of Sci-fi I normally read. However it was very enjoyable. It is quite a gentle type of story, it has some nice ideas, its very easy to read and its quite funny. Happy to recommend it.

Fun!

Really enjoyable light reading. Thoroughly enjoyable and believable alien/human society. I would gladly buy a paper version of the series.

An enjoyable read

You can connect with the characters and actually care about how things work out for them, which to me, is the sign if a good yarn. Look forward to reading the serial.
