Format: Paperback
In this thoroughly enjoyable, fast-moving tale, both Webrid and his unexpected interplanetary mission (the green light delivery of the title) are full of surprises. While the hero is repeatedly distracted by food, alcohol, women, and his own erratic thought processes, he manages to escape from one misadventure after another, sometimes by virtue of his street smarts, and sometimes thanks to the crew of co-adventurers he acquires along the way. Webrid lives in a society plagued by organized crime, corruption, government surveillance, and other issues that are all-too-familiar to twenty-first-century Earthlings, but refreshingly free from interspecies rivalries. Our hairy hero is a strong, hulking Yeril, and his alien comrades include the feathery Stravin, diminutive, multilimbed Zatell, and slender siblings Leshi and Debney. It's easy to identify with Webrid's confusion and admire his spunk as he is beset by one enemy after another and the significance of what he has to deliver is gradually revealed. The worlds of Bexilla, Cheed, and the entire Raralt Planetary Circle are well worth a visit, and thanks to author Anne E. Johnson, it's easy to book passage there.

I was not too sure I would like this book, but I found myself captured right away with these creatures descriptions from the very beginning. I rated the book five stars~ I found myself wanting to know more and more about Webrid's journey. In the end- I was happy with the book the ending was a bit different than I was expecting. It was light hearted~ I would recommend this book to everyone looking for a fun~ light~ summer read! Anne E. Johnson did a great job with the character descriptions painting a awesome visual for readers. I did have a hard time putting this book down*** The main character is very likable and this is one of my favourites for 2012.

Format: Kindle Edition
First off, this is a well constructed mystery/thriller/action novel. An everyman is handed a parcel and he has to deliver its unknown contents to an unknown recipient in a strange and unfamiliar place, while being pursued by numerous bad guys and while torn by doubts about whom to trust and whom to avoid. It sounds like a classic Hitchcock plot or the premise of any of a number of movies or popular novels. The writing is tight and the narrative has a strong forward momentum.

But then, make the confused but earnest hero, Ganpril Webrid, an alien being and put him on various alien worlds, surrounded by a vast array of distinct and distinctive alien creatures. Mix together lots of common motifs - bars, snitches, grifters, booze, robots, cops, gangsters, femmes fatale, hangovers, muggings, and all the other noir and detective staples, but give them all alien and sci-fi flavors and angles. Make sure the hero drinks Valestin-Hundred Proof and eats ground janz on a bun and flirts with babes that have suckers, at least three mouths, and multiple protuberances. Especially make sure the hero comes across as a regular guy with a hidden Philip Marlowe tough guy decency, a slow burn and gumption.

Then make the whole thing funny. Not stupid funny or jokey funny, but smart and snappy funny, with sharp dialogue, snarky robots, dark humor, clever asides and subtle digs, colorful side-kicks, and the hero's constantly engaging and amusing interior dialogue.

That's pretty much what you get here. The writing feels effortless; there isn't a lot of huffing and puffing as the author strains to dot the i's and cross the t's of her complete and perfect imaginary worlds.

I completely enjoyed Green Light Delivery. The worlds are wonderfully drawn and the characters are priceless, especially Webrid. I hope Anne Johnson will make this a series of books as I would love to read more. Reminded me of Douglas Adams. A really enjoyable escape!

Format: Paperback
Told from Wegrid's point of view, this is a witty narrative. Its sharp retorts, comical situations, and zany characters--from Wegrid himself to the many-armed, sun ray-like Zatell--make it laugh out loud hilarious in spots, as do the far away places of Cheed, Bexilla and the Raralt Circle and the strange-sounding names of geffir fruit, janz rolls, and drunken Edjenels--whatever they are.

For those who like their science fiction with a generous injection of humor, Anne E. Johnson's tale of a mission improbable--though nowhere near impossible--will hit the spot. It's a hilarious and entertaining read.

This adult sci-fi book has something for everyone! It is suspenseful, action packed, funny, and has really cool outlandish characters that are both quirky and relate-able! Webrid, the main protagonist is your average guy. He's hard working,down to earth, goes out to bars to meet people and takes pride in his profession as a carter even though it is not the most exciting career and he is just scraping by. Webrid takes pride in his cart which ties him to his family who were carters generations and generations before him. When he is chosen to make a special delivery, his courage, family pride and inner strength are all put to the test. This sentimental adorable character along with the friends he meets along the way have spunk and take you on an adventure you will never forget! You will not be able to put this book down!
