Space Captain Smith of the British Space Empire

I came across some of these Toby Frost books at a car boot sale (Flea Market) and went looking for some more details

http://spacecaptainsmith.com/

Seems to contain about 4 short free stories and a quick saunter around will give you some idea of the type of humour that is contained in the three novels to date.

It looks like the books are not too expensive on Amazon right now either.

Sounds fun, but the reviewers at Amazon report that the Kindle edition has a lot of formatting issues.

I have the first book on the Kindle. The only major issue I remember is that it inexplicably started at Chapter 12 the first time I opened it.

It was OK, but I'm not that bothered about reading any more of the series.

Several reviewers indicated the Kindle edition had problems with white space, paragraph breaks and thought breaks not present with the print book which made it confusing, especially when dialog ran together. It sounded like a maybe until I read that.

Caveat Emptor.

They also available from Kobo ad several others in ePub format.

I have no idea if these are converted from the Amazon version or formatted independently but wanted to mention it in case someone was interested but worried about the Amazon reviews,
