This mordant, fast-paced, witty tour of a delightfully improbable science fiction world combines The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy with The Magnificent Seven.

Meet Cole: hapless space rogue, part-time smuggler, on a path to being full-time dead. His sidekick just stole his girlfriend. The galaxy’s most hideous and feared bounty hunter wants to lay eggs in his brain. And the luxury space yacht Cole just hijacked turns out to be filled with interstellar do-gooders, one especially loathsome stowaway, and a cargo of freeze-dried orphans.

Reluctantly compelled to deliver these defenseless, fluidless children to safety, Cole gathers a misfit crew for a desperate journey to the far reaches of the galaxy. Their destination: the mysterious world of Yrnameer, the very last of the your-name-heres—planets without corporate sponsors. But little does Cole know that this legendary utopia is home to a murderous band of outlaws bent on destroying the planet’s tiny, peaceful community.

Follow Cole’s adventures through a delightfully absurd science fiction universe, where the artificial intelligence is stupid, dust motes carry branding messages, and middle-management zombies have overrun a corporate training satellite. In the spirit of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, The Sheriff of Yrnameer is sci-fi comedy at its best—mordant, raucously funny, and a thrilling must-listen.

    " Funny, silly, and very strange. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Genevieve Heinrich | 1/31/2014

    " This is a truly fun book, with non-stop pacing. I keep vacillating between 3 & 4 stars, because while many of the tropes were tired and the gags groan-worthy, I honestly couldn't put it down. For a first effort, it was impressive indeed. "

    " Quite funny! I recommend the audio book for a real treat. The narrator and production are one of the liveliest and well done in my audio library. "

    " If you like science fiction and comedy combined, this is a fabulous book to read. The characters were whimsical and enjoyable to follow throughout their adventures before and after you arrive at Yrnameer. The dialogue is very funny and sarcastic--loaded with humorous one-liners. The bad guys were a trip...definitely. Fantastic book...I would definitely read a sequel if it came out. "
