Sit back and imagine, if you will, a story where Lazarus Long, Hannah Montanna, and the Marvin the Paranoid Android on prozac get together to liberate a planet Got that image in your head Sounds like fun doesn t it Yep Reading it was fun, too.Jake, the main character is something of a cross between Han Solo and Lazarus Long Like Han he s in financial trouble Like Lazarus he seems to have seen and done everything at least once And like both of them he exudes a sense of fond grouchiness at the naive cute and fuzzy puppy types that keep tripping through his life.Like Lazarus, Jake has a sentient computer spaceship with a brain the size of a planet This one is not depressed, but does seem to have a dry sense of humor and irony sensors on overdrive Odin, in addition to knowing basically everything that ever was recorded, also has teleporter technology, can build almost anything, and crack basically any code As you can imagine, Odin is a very good friend to have Odin was built as a military vessel He became sentient and decided he did not want to be a warship Jake found him floating abandoned in the middle of space, probably bought him some fuel, and the two have been together since.And now, looking for some
