(1 customer review)

Discover the journey of Horatio, the self-proclaimed biggest coward in the galaxy, as he is thrown into a dangerous mission to save the universe.

Despite his fear and lack of courage, Horatio is tasked with the impossible by the all-powerful artificial intelligence that governs humanity across the stars. With the help of an unlikely cast of characters, including a Martian warrior, a robot detective, a genetically enhanced assassin, a scientist with a computer for a brain, and a millennia-old clone, Horatio sets out on a wild and chaotic adventure.

“Six Against the Star” is a fast-paced, action-packed science fiction novel that takes you on a journey through a genetically engineered paradise and the outer reaches of the galaxy. With humor, action, and thrilling twists and turns, this novel is a must-read for anyone who loves science fiction and wants to experience a unique and unforgettable story.

Get ready to laugh, gasp, and cheer as Horatio and his misfit team take on the galaxy and try to save it from destruction.


As the self-proclaimed biggest coward in the galaxy, Horatio has it easy on what passes for 40th century America.

A much-favoured sycophant in the court of the King of Earth, Horatio lives in a genetically engineered paradise where there’s a vat-grown slave waiting around every marble column with a bunch of grapes to drop into his oh-so-perfectly designed mouth.

Unfortunately for Horatio, the artificial intelligence that rules the great mass of humanity spread across the stars has other plans for this feckless seducer. So, if you ever wonder how the galaxy’s biggest coward finds himself actually trying to save it, you’re not alone… but then, unfortunately, neither is our hero!

His misadventures are abetted by a psychotic Martian warrior, a robot who thinks it’s related to Sherlock Holmes, a beautiful genetically enhanced assassin, a scientist with a computer for a brain, and a millennia-old clone who was alive when the last U.S. President was executed by a firing squad.

It’s six against the galaxy. Six against the stars. They’ll save the universe… but they might damage it first.

  1. 4 out of 5


    I wasn’t sure if I should pick up Six Against the Stars because I’m not usually a fan of science fiction. But I’m so glad I did. I found myself laughing out loud and cheering for the ragtag crew of six as they attempted to save the galaxy. Horatio is the story’s unlikeliest hero, and I found myself chuckling at his inept attempts to avoid harm. Even though they’re far from perfect, this misfit crew finds a way to save the galaxy. It’s a nonstop thrill ride that any fan of science fiction will enjoy & I endorse it to anyone in search of a good time.

While I'd much rather you buy direct from me, I understand that's not always possible. Here's the link(s) to the billionaire tech-opolies, if you must go with them.
