Book One in the Hal Spacejock series. Chapter 1. Hal Spacejock was hunched over the Black Gull's flight console, studying a small chessboard balanced amongst the toggle switches, warning lights and status displays. Recently he'd read an article promoting the ancient game, claiming it would sharpen his mind, improve his memory and increase his attraction to the opposite sex. After two hundred and seventy-six losses in a row Hal was beginning to doubt the article's claims.

An incompetent, accident-prone pilot is given one last chance to save his ship, an elderly robot is trusted with a midnight landing in a deserted field, and a desperate businessman is prepared to sacrifice both of them to get what he wants. Combining relentless action with non-stop laughs, Hal Spacejock explodes onto the science fiction scene with the subtlety of a meteor strike and the hushed reverence of a used car salesman.

Hal Spa-see-jacque (when read by the Kindle Text to Speech) is an all-around good guy, when given the opportunity. More often than not, though, the universe is erecting houses of cards in front of him, and he keeps plowing them down. He's the sort that doesn't much like reading manuals or following bureaucracy.

With his robot Clunk, he's tasked to make a delivery, one that might put a competitor out of business. The competitor strives to slow him down. A lot of people try to do conflicting things, applying more and more pressure.

One big twist -- one of many lies actually wound up being true. I didn't see this one coming at all. As in the first book, the surrounding science is good, and all characters act logically.

In one of many great snippets, an entire planet is wiped out by DRM.

The second Hal Spacejock book is even better than the first (free) one. As noted by other reviewers, Hal becomes a more real and likeable character, although no less out of touch with his own ineptitude. His relations with his robot Clunk and his ship's Nav computer increase to the point that there are now about 2 1/2 main characters. The interaction between Hal and Clunk provides both additional humor and interest less evident in the first book. Like the first plot, this one is filled with obstacles to Hal's mission. He repeatedly demonstrates his ability to snatch success from disaster -- and sometimes vice-versa.

If you like a lot of zany excitement and humor with all the subtlety of a thrown brick, this book is for you. I am looking forward to starting the third book.

Hale and Clunk have a new ship they now have Navcom up and running on the ship the three of them are a team, that will make you laugh, great clean fun, just don't let Hale fly the ship.

Clunk is the robot in the book and is a great character. The books are easy reads and include some humor. A great read for getting away from the more stressing things in life. I recommend the book!

Ok, so this is the second book in the series and really the job of this book is Hal's character development. Really, believe it or not that character does have a character and author tries hard to convince you how and why Hal behaves. It was quite predictable what Hal will do in a particular circumstance after that, so the surrounding circumstances pick up the slack and keep the story interesting.

Good read so far, in to the next...

Hal and Clunk are at it again and find adventure in a unique way. This was as fun as the first book. Decent plot and characters made for an enjoyable read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting and well written sci-fi novel. I'll definitely be looking for the next installment of the series.
I have read 4 of the Hal Spacejock books each and every one is fun and exciting. You will root for Hal and Clunk thru each adventure and feel like you are a part of the story. Love the character interaction especially how robots interact with humans without seriously harming them. Very imaginative Author!
