Neurotic tech Zagarat Cole had no choice but to steal 432,985 credits from the Deus Syndicate: it was the only way to pay for his mother’s medical treatments. So when a Deus executive called Zag into his office, he knew the jig was up … or down … or however it is you dance a jig. Yet to Zag’s astonishment, the executive didn’t excoriate, eviscerate, or “ate” him at all—he offered him a job. The Deus CEO would consider it a personal favor if Zag helped privateer, ladies’ man, and all-around great guy Fletcher Griffin with an easy outsource assignment. Were the fates smiling on Zag for once in his sunning life? Until then, it seemed like whoever was writing his story in the great cosmic diary just plain didn’t like him. But here was an opportunity to curry favor from the tenth most powerful CEO in the known universe—and possibly even make a few credits on the side. Zag quickly learns, however, that nothing is easy when Fletcher Griffin is involved. He soon finds himself hacking into the corporation’s database, searching for incriminating evidence linking a Deus executive to Galustay, an insidious drug that can only be derived by harvesting adrenaline from living Weiylans. Now Fletcher and Zag must find a way to stop the harvesters and free the Weiylans, all the while fighting off a case of intentionally induced food poisoning (which Fletcher can totally explain), avoiding the ire of a powerful executive (which Fletcher can totally explain), and generally running for their lives wherever they go (which Fletcher can totally explain). And yet something strange happens to Zag along the way. His anxieties dwindle, subsumed by something called courage—all because of an enigmatic privateer who is more than the bumbling idiot he seems.

“Alternately fascinating and hilarious, Edward Zajac’s cosmic romp A Swift Kick in the Asteroids is devious, irreverent and entertaining, a swift kick in the funny bone.” Richard Ellis Preston Jr., author of the Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin series
“Be prepared to laugh your asteroid off…Yes its funny, but more than that, the novel is also a terrific action-packed adventure.” MuttCafe.com

Author Bio: Edward Zajac

Author Bio: Edward Zajac

Edward Zajac was born in Connecticut. After some encouragement from his high school English teacher, he began writing novels. Bad novels. Horrible novels. Novels that were kicked out of the bottom drawer of his desk because the dirt inside refused to share accommodations with such dross. In fact, beta readers wanted to add those novels to the Geneva Convention as examples of excessive torture. But his writing muscles strengthened with every misstep and he can now stand all on his own. When not writing, he enjoys reading, role playing games, board games, video games, and devouring anything written by Terry Pratchett.
