Saving the galaxy, one word at a time...

Sex, bugs & ufos

In space, no one can hear you whinge...
Dave Morrissey (aka The Lone Monkey), former staffer with England's UFO Hotline, is coerced back into business by a weaselly ex-colleague to investigate a cold case that’s suddenly gotten hotter with the death of a disturbed old woman. As the questions about her past begin piling up, Morrissey reluctantly enlists the aid of a shifty tabloid journalist who has surprising insight into all things extraterrestrial. Together they uncover clues that paint a target on Morrissey’s back big enough to attract the sights of an emotionally unstable alien conspiracy theorist, a morally ambiguous bounty hunter and an unscrupulous alien arms dealer and his band of surly mercenaries.

Morrissey’s star-tripping journey takes him from the grey streets of London to the fetid streets of Phonsekka Prime; from the lurid nightclubs of JuHu Station to the hostile wastelands of a planet called Chyll. Tangled in the folds of hyperspace, Morrissey will confront a mystery that could trigger an interplanetary war and turn his understanding of who he is and where he belongs on its head. Will he risk everything for the home he loves?

Written for all the dreamers out there who have ever felt that their true destiny lies amongst the stars, this rollicking space opera is high on adventure and infused with the type of offbeat humour that often creeps into the darkest cracks of real life.
