The Steely Dan by Ben and Brianna Hamlett-Keeling
A scifi comedy featuring a man who was a god, vampire pirates and a robot goat. And that's just the first chapter.
The debut novel in a series of adventures starring Arrson and his former mercenary team in the frontiers of space, science and staying alive...
Arrson’s life has never been the same since he was brought back to life. His mind had been stored in an artificial universe in which he became a god. He didn’t even get put back into his own body. And then there’s the genetically modified vampire pirates that want both his erotically-shaped space-mining ship, and to feed on his person and crew.
When Arrson and said elite and legendary crew - consisting of one alcoholic ship’s technician and a morally challenged robot goat - board the pirate vessel to fight them without risking their decrepit ship, the young patriarch of the vampire pirates, Jim, realises what a very special mind Arrson has. A mind that must be protected. The mind of a god who has perfected a recipe for government and chip’n’gravy pie.
From his death to his storage in and retrieval from an artificial universe and placement in a black-market body, we follow Arrson’s journey into the new and possibly final frontier: interdimensional space.
