Space Captain Smith is the first book of the Chronicles of Isambard Smith. It's the 25th Century and the British Space Empire faces the gathering menace of the evil ant-soldiers of the Ghast hive, hell bent on galactic domination and the extermination of all humanoid life forms.

Captain Isambard Smith is the square-jawed, courageous and somewhat asinine new commander of the clapped out freighter John Pym, destined to take on the alien threat because nobody else is available. Together with his bold crew - a skull-collecting alien lunatic, an android pilot who is actually a fugitive sex toy and a hamster called Gerald - he must collect new-age herbalist Rhianna Mitchell from the New Francisco orbiter and bring her back to the Empire in safety. Straightforward enough - except the Ghasts want her too and, in addition to a whole fleet of Ghast warships, Smith has to confront void sharks, a universe-weary android assassin and John Gilead, psychopathic naval officer from the fanatically religious Republic of Eden before facing his greatest enemy: a ruthless alien warlord with a very large behind....

    " Spiffing rip roaring! "

    " Great fun romp!! Thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more! "

    " Not at all what I was expecting but very pleasantly surprised. I had assumed this was going to be a more steampunk in space type book and in some ways it is. Captain Smith is almost a stereotype of the repressed Victorian Englishman and so obviously above Johnny foreigner that you want to pat him on the head and say "yes dear". His crew of a renegade sex android and an alien warrior who is straight out of the pages of Burroughs, combine in a book that riffs pop culture references throughout. Very entertaining "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marya | 2/3/2014

    " This book made me laugh out loud. That doesn't happen very often. I made my bf put down the book he was reading and read it right after I did. If I had waited I would have ruined the book by reading him all the funny bits, which would have been most of the book. I loved it, and loved the writing, the characters, and was impressed the with sheer amount of silly sexual innuendo. This book is Brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Franklin | 1/15/2014

    " Didn't start very well. The writing lacked confidence and some of the humour fell a little flat for me. However it is his first book and as it continued it improved steadily; the writing more confidant and the humour more laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hope | 1/5/2014

    " Not a great piece of literature or satire, but a fun read. Some hilarious innuendo and skewering of all sorts of stereotypes, with some nudge, nudge, wink, wink, references to great works of sci-fi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Large | 12/20/2013

    " Nice to read an author who doesn't allow the facts to get in the way of a good laugh. Some laugh out loud moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Harrow | 11/22/2013

    " Toby Foster is well worth reading, this is chap fictionat its best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frank | 10/22/2013

    " I've given up two thirds of the way through. I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't this... Juvenile humour and knob jokes? No thanks. When I hit the crushingly unfunny Matrix/Cyberpunk parody section, I dumped it. Not for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 9/30/2013

    " Monty Python meets Hitchhiker's Guide meets Benny Hill meets classic SciFi (of various sorts). Easy, quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 6/24/2013

    " I learned what i had long suspected...that i don't like comedy Sci-Fi, and especially not when it's pretty badly written and doesn't appeal to my sense of humour. Others have given this book good reivews, so i'm guessing it's just not to my taste - I thought it was absolute pants. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mikael Hansson | 11/22/2011

    " This is a parody of space opera and SF in general. It is fun a chapter or two but then it turns out it is just a endless numbers of oh so funny references to movies and books... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Griffin | 5/27/2011

    " A rollicking, humorous (albeit juvenile) space adventure! First in a series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michele | 2/27/2011

    " I simply could *not* get into this book. Gave it 50 pages before giving up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 12/18/2010

    " A great, light-hearted space adventure with the British Empire. Reminded me a lot of Douglas Adams. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 6/3/2010

    " Great fun romp!! Thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 4/28/2010

    " Very funny in a British, but sometimes crass, sort of way. An enjoyable read. I look forward to the other books in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DJ | 4/7/2010

    " Once I realized I should be taking it all tongue in cheek, I loved it. The supporting characters were easy to imagine and enjoyable, which was good, because the lead character is a bit of a jerk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/12/2010

    " A fun book that sometimes tries too hard but is saved by the invention Of Suruk "
