Overview

DuckBob Spinowitz has a problem. It isn't the fact that he has the head of a duck-the abduction was years ago and he's learned to live with it. But now those same aliens are back, and they claim they need his help! Apparently creatures from another reality are invading the universe, and only DuckBob can reset the device that maintains the barrier between dimensions. He reluctantly agrees to help, but how can a man whose only talents are bird calls and bad jokes, and whose only work experience is punching random buttons on a computer in a standard cubicle, be expected to save the universe?

No Small Bills is the hilarious new science fiction novel from award-winning, bestselling author Aaron Rosenberg, who has written books for Eureka, Star Trek, WarCraft, and many others, and is also the author of the rousing Dread Remora space-opera series for Crossroad Press.

If you're looking for some wacky light reading, this book is for you. Duck Bob has a series of misadventures across the universe -- whisked along in events beyond his understanding, much like Arthur Dent in Hitchhiker's Guide. But unlike Arthur, Bob faces all the weirdness with good ol' American spunk. Bob's narration is the best part of this book -- half Mickey Spillane and half Woody Allen. Definitely great reading for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Quite a bargain for $2.99 on the Nook!

Entertaining and original

This is interesting and funny (according to the resident 12 year old). Whoever recommended it to Doug Adams fans seemed to hit the nail on the head!

Fast-paced and funny, a delightful read. I really enjoyed the characters and the snappy dialogue. I'm excited about this being a series! More Duck Bob!

I am as big a fan as the next guy of serious SF, but it can be a downer when every day life is not going well. A friend rec'd this book as a good fun read. She was right. The humor is fast paced and energetic and the characters are great. I had to keep from laughing too loud when I was reading this on a flight. It is written in a voice I can relate to and the adventures are exciting. I look forward to more books in this series.

A light hearted satire on science fiction, fun to read, but not really a great book.
