Science fiction takes a hilarious new turn in this novel about a workaday entertainment lawyer, two extraterrestrial visitors, and the impending bankruptcy of the entire cosmos. When aliens Frampton and Carly show up at Nick Carter's office, he first suspects that they are just pranksters, but the trick is on him. They tell him that creatures in other galaxies have grown so attached to Planet Earth music that they have been illegally downloading it for decades, only to learn recently that they must pay the rock star pipers heaps and heaps of money that they simply don't have. They enlist Carter's help, sending him off on an urgent mission to save the universe from war, mayhem, and massive court costs. John Hodgman was right when he called this fiction "hilarious, provocative, and supersmart." In the tradition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
