Robert Asprin Phule's Company. It has been said that every great man deserves a biographer. I have therefore taken it upon myself to keep a private record of my employer's activities during his career in the Space Legion. If there are those who would, perhaps, contest his qualifications as a great man, I would answer that he is the closest thing to a great man that it has been my privilege to associate with on close enough terms to keep such a journal

For the less literate-minded, I would ask that you refrain from associating that label with any comic book character you might be familiar with. I have always felt that capes were an unnecessary fashion statement and have endeavored to discourage my employers from resorting to such tacky, attention-seeking ploys.

This is the third time I bought this book, my friends keep "forgetting" to return it (I don't mind, I do the same to their books, but that should tell you something about this fun little novel).
There is a super-diverse cast, including a quiet, Filipino chef named Escrima (Does your science fiction book have Filipinos in it? I didn't think so. And this guy's a badass) The top guy is like Bugs Bunny -- he is resourceful and knows how to get out of any kind of trouble without being invincible or overly smug about it. And he manages to be very likable . The storytelling is light and fun and addictive, the literary equivalent of eating popcorn. If you like science fiction and humor that's easy to read, you might as well buy the other books in the series, you'll want more.

I first read this book in the early 90's, and at the time the tech being referenced was considered to be so "out there" as to be comfortably "impossible" for the time it was written that one had no trouble with the setting being "The Future (TM)."

Today, though, one can be forgiven for wondering what the big deal is when the average person has a cell phone that can accomplish what the "Super-Brain" computers are supposed to do, smart watches are becoming the norm, and as a culture we're actively working on ways to make hover boards a reality.

That being said, this book shows that tech may move on, but the military AND business will remain the same. I re-read this in less than a day and giggled just as much as the first time.

I don't really write reviews, but this is one of my favorite books of all time. I have been a Robert Asprin fan for a long time, but something about this really clicked with me, particularly the first scene were Phule goes to the hotel. I have gone through 2 physical copies of this book because I re-read it so many times and they just wore out.
I was very happy to find these books converted to digital so now I can keep it forever.

While not as laugh-out-loud funny as Event Horizon (The Black Hole Travel Agency Book 1), this book follows a script for the old TV series 'McHale's Navy'. A leader must mold the people he has in order to accomplish assignments. Each one starts as a caricature: giant alien, or short angry female, or larcenous supply sergeant- then Capt. Phule converts them to functional Legionnaires. Willard Phule intelligently looks for ways to motivate the men and women in Omega while assigned to a swampy frontier planet.
Written from perspective of droll butler, you will eagerly anticipate the climax of this preparation. But first, the unit proves how much esprit it possesses in a satisfying spectacle. Late in the book, Phule himself confounds everyone when presented with a life and death crisis. -which does not surprise his butler at all.

I love this series, just wish it was all available on Kindle. It makes deployed living somewhat bearable.... PLEASE!! Release the rest of this series digitally as soon as possible so that I can read it while I'm away from home and family. The story is just too good and helps me deal with not being with my family...

Thanks!!

If you're a fan of any one of his other series then you'll enjoy this. My only regrets are that it has taken so long for the book to reach the kindle, and that as of this moment the rest of the series is still only available on paper.

So this isn't hard techno fiction. It is an interesting take on sci fi with politics and business management acumen. I enjoyed the book and the humor of the author.
An enjoyable story of a bunch of misfits put together that are expected to be utter failures at where ever they do,placed under the command of a wealthy man with out military experience.Well thought out and written,these folks become closer than most families to look out for each other and get their jobs done,no matter the odds against them.Should be enjoyable to everyone,especially thjose who have served in the military with a misfit or 2 in their unit.
