Publisher's Summary

A laugh-out-loud, action-packed space adventure series from the author critics are calling "the unholy offspring of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett".

When petty criminal Cal Carver is locked in a cell with a deranged, semi-naked cannibal, he suspects his life has hit its lowest point. He is mistaken.

Abducted by aliens and whisked across the galaxy, Cal is thrown into a team of misfits and criminals and sent on a top secret mission for the president of Space. And that's when everything starts to go very, very wrong....

This bundle collects the first three best-selling adventures of Cal Carver and the crew of the dread ship Shatner, by multi-award-winning author Barry J. Hutchison:

  • Space Team
  • Space Team: The Wrath of Vajazzle
  • Space Team: The Search for Splurt

Loved it

I recently found out about Space Team on a social media site - and after reading the comments - decided to give it a go.
The books don’t take itself too seriously- and I loved that. Great adventures with quite a few unexpected turns and plot twist. I particularly love the banter between the team. As the books went on, I found myself really falling in love with each of the characters on the team - even Squirt.
Think of it as a fabulous cross between Guardians of the Galaxy & Hitchhikers GTTG - a good rollicking time to be had.
The narration is exceptional - and now has me looking for other works read by Phil Thron.
Do yourself a favor - and get it!

Absurd. Irreverent. A damn good time!

Imagine, if you will, a 7-foot-tall "valley girl" werewolf. Growl, like, fur shur. That is a sample of the alien cookie dough that is Space Team. With a nod to Star Trek & Galaxy Quest, Barry Hutchison has assembled the weirdest, funniest action figures you couldn't wait to rip out of their blister packs. Phil Thron's performance is among the best I have ever head! Great Fun!

Best Deal EVER!!!!

I LOVE these HILARIOUS, laugh out loud, works of art and having three of them in one collection is an out of this world bargain! They’re like Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy except Space Team is actually funny.

Nice!

It’s a bit like Stainless Steel Rat meets Farscape meets Guardians of the Galaxy. A little slow up front, but it picks up speed. And insanity. The humor is a little twisted, and funny. It’s a fun space romp with aliens, genocide, zombies and self discovery.

Grinning ear to ear

These books are so hilariously entertaining. I enjoyed every bit of it. The characters are wonderful, and the situations they find themselves in had me cracking up. Phil Thron is also now one of my favorite narrators.

Fun fast listen

Any book that makes me laugh out loud gets a special 5 star. humor is a bit juvenile at times, so you gotta have a certain sense of humor, but if you're good with a little slap stick and body humor, this is amazing!

everyone said Its funny

Eeryone said it was funny so I would thought I would give it a try. It is funny to be sure.

But it's all so gruesome and has elements of horror in it. I dislike that so much. I mean why does science fiction have to have Horror in it? Couldn't we have had a story without that? I'm sorry I used my credit.

The narrator is GREAT

An Unmissable Collection

Space Team has been one of the greatest listens on Audible I've ever had the pleasure of having, it's smart, funny and absolutely worth your time. It's helped me through this unfortunate quarantine more than pretty much anything else which is ironic now that I think about how the story begins.
Don't miss out, pick up this collection and get enough hours to last at least a few days listening.

Not usually the type of book I would be drawn to but the humour is spot on. The narrator was excellent and the story was paced really well.

The Terry Pratchett of sci-fi

Just finished the first book - it Owes a huge debt to the MCU version of Guardians of the Galaxy and the characters of Hitchhikers Guide. Lots of popular culture references from a few years ago. It’s fun and moves along nicely.

Space paced space fun.

The Sidekick's initiative was my introduction to Barry J Hutchinson's work. Much like that and Phil's narration, nothing dissapoints.
