Publisher's Summary

A collection of short stories gathered from the far reaches of the Space Team Universe. Some of these stories have been available elsewhere over the past few months, while others are new for this collection. The spectacular tales of space adventure you'll find in this audio are: 

"Dead Men Don't Get Paid"

Undead detective, Dan Deadman, has a problem. He has a number of them, in fact. He's missing an arm. He needs money to repair his broken window. Someone has opened a portal to the hell-like Malwhere in a nightclub, filling the place with slavering flesh-eating monsters. Fortunately, Dan's diminutive house guest, Artur, has a plan to help him fix at least one of these problems, but like everything else in Dan's afterlife, nothing quite works out the way it should. A brand new Dan Deadman Space Detective adventure, set in the aftermath of Dial D for Deadman

"Space Team: The Holiday Special"

Die Hard meets The Nativity in Space! It's Space Christmas Eve, and all through the space station not a creature was stirring except a load of evil space pirates who are trying to kidnap a very special newborn baby so it can be eaten by their pirate king. They hadn't counted on Cal Carver and the Space Team, though, who happen to be on the station for some much needed R & R. Originally published in December 2016 as a standalone short story. 

"The Last Bounty"

Once the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy, all Konto Garr wants these days is a quiet family life with the woman he loves, and the respect of Deenia, the step-daughter who hates his guts. But when Deenia is taken hostage, Konto must employ all his skills to mount a death-defying rescue mission. With a terrorist-filled station between him and the hostages, and an infuriatingly upbeat boy from Deenia's class for company, Konto's talents will be stretched to their limit as he goes after the most important bounty of his life - his daughter. Originally published as part of the comedy sci-fi anthology, "Pew Pew - Sex, Guns, Spaceships.... Oh My!" 

"Death Comes to Carverville - A Tobey Maguire Mystery"

Former Hollywood actor, Tobey Maguire, now spends his days as an imaginary construct inside the subconscious of Space Team's Cal Carver, only ever called upon when Cal is knocked unconscious. But when a murderer starts to stalk the corridors of Cal's mind, Tobey Maguire - accompanied by a wise-cracking racist squirrel only he can see or hear - must turn detective and unmask the killer before the imaginary inhabitants of Cal's head are picked off one by one, leaving Cal completely brain dead. The first ever solo Tobey Maguire adventure, written just for this collection. 

"Nun Shall Pass"
Former Nun, Ronda Sallas, is on a mission to save her son, Narp, from himself. And also from some evil Xandrie gangsters who have tricked him into helping them steal a weapon of mass destruction. Mostly from them, actually. Fortunately, Ronda's time at the convent has left her more than capable to deal with a few dozen gangsters, but when an Anti-Nun strips her of her precognition powers, things suddenly become more difficult. First published in The Expanding Universe - Volume 2 anthology. 

"Splurt Home Alone"
An all-new short solo adventure starring everyone's favorite adorable green blob, Splurt.

I love everything about this series

I don’t know who I love more; Barry for the stories or Phil for his narration. It’s a toss-up that’s just gonna end up in a ménage a Trois with Phil’s hilarious outtakes being the yummy ooey gooey center. I gobble up every book as soon as it is published to audible. Hands-down - space team and the Dan deadman books are my all-time favorite in the science fiction comedy genre. If you like to laugh and love a good adventure story in space, then start this series immediately! You’re welcome.

Fun short stories

Nothing wrong with short stories. I enjoyed these very much. Standard Space Team action made for a great day while confined to my couch.

Barry and Phil as good as ever.

This 'random mash-up' of stuff Barry seemingly couldn't fit into his stories is a shameless cash grab. He is obviously attempting to get even more money from fans by providing further insights into our favorite characters in a way that would distract from the main story in an actual novel. These short stories are a perfect way to get such extra character detail, and I hope he has more unused material in a drawer or folder somewhere. Waiting for 'More Weird Space Shizz'.

Sooooooo many laughs!!

Out loud... a lot of laughs out loud. Honestly all the Space Team universe books just make me so damn happy! I need more! Barry, please don't ever stop writing them and please always have Phil Thron narrate. He is HYSTERICAL and really brings the characters to life! The only way to make reading these books better it's if I had a bag of spit nibbles on my lap while listening. Another great set of adventures and especially loved the new character and the Toby Maguire story!

As always a great listen!

Entertaining and funny and I always enjoy the outtakes of Barry breaking up trying to get through the narration. I've been waiting for a new Dan Deadman story so this helped tide me over. Great stories from Barry and as usual Phil Thron is excellent in his narration. If you haven't read any of the Space Team universe works then this can be a good sampling of the various books available and for those of us that just want more this helps us get by until Barry can get something new out.

A whole lot of space awesomeness

There isn't much you can say about any Space Team book that hasn't already been said. They are just amazing and the funniest stuff I have ever read/listened to. Phil Thron is just a master at this series.

One of the best about the Space Team universe

I did not have the highest hopes for this book. But it was great. I like the series. But the mix of stories worked excellent. Well worth the time.
