Description

He's abducted by aliens to the planet Vost.

He's saving up for his fare home.

But he's got the small matter of a planetary apocalypse to deal with first...


In 1977 a New York Cab driver Mike Redolfo is abducted by aliens after being mistaken for a renegade scientist. Meanwhile, back in 1944 a mysterious man and his Jewish fiancee are fleeing across Nazi occupied Europe.

Redolfo tries to keep a low profile on his new world whilst earning his fare home, but unwittingly gets involved with a shady gang of alien criminals, inadvertently bringing the planet to the brink of catastrophe.

As the link between the timelines becomes clear, Redolfo must discover secrets from the past that may hold the key to saving the planet.

If you like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5, or Frank Herbert's Dune, you'll love this gripping and entertaining sci-fi mystery thriller.

Review quote

"A perfect blend of science fiction and alternate history.";'If Space Taxis does not sound like a story that sprang out of the minds of two wildly imaginative storytellers, no story ever will... Adam and Harriet Frosh have written a novel that is a triumph of high adventure. This can even translate to an entertaining film adaptation that would have an appeal-like Total Recall or The Fifth Element. Redolfo's abduction, his time spent on another planet, and how it changes him are what give the story life, depth, and humanity. Reading it is a good form of cerebral entertainment.' Readers' Favorite;'I absolutely loved Redolfo's story.' Netgalley;'Fans of both science fiction and historical fiction will love Space Taxis - five stars.' Eric Balch, Author of Assault on Devil's Den;Space Taxis has been awarded the 5-star seal by Readers' Favorite.

About Adam Frosh

Adam wasted much of his youth watching Star Trek on the TV and films like Planet of the Apes and Alien on the big screen. He redeemed himself by becoming a surgeon but has since graduated from writing articles for science journals into writing his own Sci Fi and Alternate History stories. As a writer he is dedicated to giving his readers a great story laced with strong, fun and scary characters.
Descended from Jewish refugees who escaped from the pogroms, he is haunted by the stories of the Holocaust but inspired by heroes who put themselves at risk to save others.
Adam likes to hear from his readers. You can find him at http://adamfroshauthor.com or on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AdamFroshAuthor
Harriet will never be able to let go of Greek gods. No, not the sculpted Adonis-like figures on the beach, but the ancient ones.
Loving all things mythological, her writing incorporates myths and legends from around the world. Her other fascination is with the criminal mind, and you can expect to see a blend of these two interests in her writing.
As a student of English, she spends her day critiquing literature and her evenings creating exciting characters and fun stories.
Harriet is also an artist, and she would like to hear from her readers and those interested in her art. You can get in contact at http://harrietfrosh.com/
