Format: Paperback
Reboots (2012) is the second Speculative Fiction volume in the Stellar Guild series, following Tau Ceti. This volume contains a novelette, a novella, greetings from the series editor, and an introduction to the protege.

These tales are set in a universe where vampires, werewolves and zombies have come out of the closet. Preternaturals are hard to kill, so Norms use them to explore the galaxy. Home Service sends out crews with four vampires, a werewolf and lots of disposable zombies.

Bad Moon Rising by Cody Martin is the novelette. Skinny Jim is a talking zombie. His friend Pete is another. The rest of the Reboots are too stupid to talk.

Fred is the Fur. He was an engineer before being turned and still knows how to fix things. So he directs the zombies in keeping the bought-from-the-lowest-bidder ship running. He is also the vampire's food supply.

The Fangs are the ship officers. Antonio is the Captain. Grigoire is the astrophysicist and Hephaestus is the navigator. Barnabus is the odd man out among the other vampires.

In this story, Jim is holding down Fred while the drainer is taking out his blood. Of course, werewolves generate new blood almost instantly. Yet draining is not comfortable and makes them very hungry afterward.

Fred is cursing Barnabus for his nasty fur jokes. This time, Fred is showing a real talent in his curses. Antonio sneers at Fred for his threats.

Later, Jim and Pete find another zombie torn apart beyond fixing. They are down to the halfway point in stored Reboots. They don't seem to last as long as usual, probably due to the angry Fangs.

This a great book for super natural and space fans. There is a large mix of super natural creatures some many may not have even heard of. The mix of action and campy humor keeps the story entertaining and funny. There is great potential for a series here and I hope it has a sequel.

Potentially this is creation of another universe for the author to play in. There is a consistent world view. What if paranormal beings existed? How would that impact space travel? They could live longer and thus take the long journeys at less than light speed required to explore the galaxy. But what would motivate them to leave earth? Which paranormal beings exist and what does the right balance crew look like? Finally how do you keep a such a crew loyal and prevent them from blasting off on their own?

The author gave some thought to this and created what she felt was the perfect balance. Then a few Zombies with brains, for thinking, not eating, upset the delicate balance. The central authority kind of wants their ship back, but mostly appears they want to set an example to discourage others from defecting to freedom. (Is it defecting or stealing when the pilots steal an expensive ship? How would we feel about our fighter pilots selling their planes on the black market? ) So, the central government hires someone to track them down and recover the ship. New paranormal beings continue to appear, The Boogie, Wendingos,...

I found the world to be internally consistent, the characters fairly believable once you accept the rules of the
universe and the plot OK. The villains were evil, the heroes not really heroes so much as just trying to get through life and some characters neither heroes nor villains just "people", overall this made a good combination.

Not a deep read but fun for an afternoon, although you might be embarrassed if you have to explain the plot to any intellectuals.

This book is hilarious - a brilliant take on paranormal/fantasy in space, and how progress both builds the future and destroys the past.
