No Phule Like An Old Phule by Robert Asprin, Peter J. Heck

What’s a millionaire bachelor to do? Join the army—with his butler—of course.

Meet Captain Willard Phule and his company of misunderstood misfits. Together, they’ve taken space by storm—and left a tradition of zaniness and laughter in their wake…

Desperate to kick Phule out of the Space Legion, General Blitzkrieg sends a crack team of environmental investigators—including celebrity canine Barky the Environmental Dog—to sniff out Phule and his unnatural disasters.

It doesn’t take long. Phule is hosting a group of big-game hunters who think they can bag a dinosaur on Zenobia. Needless to say, dinosaurs are not a native species. But cold, hard facts never stopped a Phule…

And neither will Barky’s cold, wet nose.

General Blitzkrieg hates Phule (AKA Captain Jester) and his Omega Company, soldiers who fail to heed any rules except their own. To make Phule¿s life miserable, Blitzkrieg sends the Alliance Ecological Interplanetary Observation Union (AEIOU) to ¿join¿ the Omega Company on Zenobia. The wily General hopes the two groups interact in a manner that will cause aggravation and stress to Phule. Phule anticipates rewards for finding a new alien race on this planet............................ Phule copes with AEIOU and renowned genetically enhanced wonder dog Barky while also dealing with hunters desiring to bring home trophy dinosaurs. At the same time, his father Victor tries to work on conning two Grifters into selling the shares of Phule¿s Casino that they won for a nominal price..................................... Most military science fiction is serious with a theme of saving the universe, but NO PHULE LIKE AN OLD PHULE is an upbeat lighthearted galaxy romp. The protagonist might ignore bureaucratic regulations and procedures furbished from a central location with no understanding beyond their beltway, but he also runs a tight ship. His crew respects Phule who goes out of their way to ensure they are cared for with proper equipment and supplies and are financially rewarded. Only a fool would myths a Phule¿s tale.......................... Harriet Klausner
