about the book

The most cosmopolitan city in the galaxy, and a guy can’t even get a freakin’ sandwich.

That should be the least of Izo’s concerns. He’s already been kidnapped by aliens and dragged halfway across the galaxy so they can make a buck off his talents. He knew that being able to fly made him special, but he had no idea the cult-like—yet servile—status that Avarians held beyond Earth’s boundaries. As they arrive in the entertainment capital of IA, he’s got a choice: cooperate with his captors so they’ll get him back home, or flee and take his best shot.

It doesn’t seem like much of a choice. Being stuck with a mean reptile, a tele-empathic linguist, and a giant teddy bear that could crush a car seems as bad as it gets—until IA’s most powerful CEO-Senator, Malogue Di’ Mortaco, appears from deep within the Capital’s darkest waters. With things changing from zany to scary, it’s up to Izo to navigate a dangerous game of befriend and befraud, or be trapped on the wrong side of the universe forever.

Mixing zany, nonsensical mayhem and voice-driven satire with modern representations and necessary #MeToo discussions, STATIC OVER SPACE flips the script on damsels-in-distress to analyze the underlying nature of sexual politics and power imbalance.
