"Move over General Leia, Lieutenant Ripley, and Imperator Furiosa. There's a new girl gang in town, and these Sisters of Tomorrow are gunning to Save The Universe once and for all." Lisa Yaszek, Regents Professor of Science Fiction Studies

"Unputdownable, irrepressible, witty, wise, fiercely funny, revolutionarily deep without a smidgeon of dull prose, novel ode to joy." Anna Tambour, World Fantasy-nominated author of Crandolin

Book 2 in The Brothers Jetstream universe

One day you'll be interviewed, her subconscious riffed, about what it's like being Desiree Quicho, and you'll try to be this massively erudite Guatemalan Queen of philosophy and measured evaluation, except that won't feel right. Por ejemplo, you've successfully infiltrated a moon base under disguise, stolen top-secret machinery, went back to retrieve an errant crew member who provided the needed distraction for you to load said equipment on board your shuttle, and now find yourself wholly unable to wax philosophical about one person's role in assuring a decent, just world for all, because, in reality, saving the world involves a shitload of footwork.

As in running...

No one has time for your BS...but Captain Desiree Quicho and her crew of utter badasses surely don't. Got a universe to save. Again. Commandeer one piece of out-of-this-world tech and suddenly you have an evil billionaire and a corporate queenpin on your ass, factions scrabbling at the power grab to end all power grabs, and an ultimate AI bent on a rampage of healing.

All a captain wanted was a little chill time, a few tunes, and quality barbecue.

Woe to those blocking her groove.

Four women; One machine goddess; a Hellbilly, Saharan elves, the baddest Pacific Octopus this side of Atlantis... and Humanity's balance tilting toward its biggest unknown future yet.

Review quote

"An ingenious work." Jeffrey Ford, author of Ahab's Return

"Afro Puffs is a sci-fi, space-blazing, shoot-em-up adventure. It's an existential mind trip. It's a chick flick. It's an action-packed 1980s romp. It's a catalog of smooth lines you wish you'd said first. But make no mistake - beneath the dazzle there's a dance floor made of pure, solid plot." License to Quill

"Afro Puffs is the sort of sci-fi that could get Prince's sexyass ghost to slink outta the celestial void to host a book club." Patty Templeton, author of There Is No Lovely End

"This book made me smile, made me gasp in surprise, and made me fist-punch the air." Writing Slices

"What we want to do is write a book that quotes this one at the beginning of each chapter. Our book will be meaningless; its sole purpose is to lead readers to this one, and closer to meta-liturgical enlightenment." Emmy Jackson, author of the Empty Cradle series
