Zaftan Miscreants: Book 2 of the Zaftan Trilogy

Two very different cultures clash in outer space. One, the gundies, is composed of humans, dwarfs, elves and other fantasy creatures. The second, the zaftans, are huge, nasty and belligerent aliens. Against this backdrop, the two main characters, different from everyone around them, struggle to survive because their uniqueness causes their environments to become decidedly hostile. One, named Sam, is an android with an organic brain. She develops emotions like flesh-and-blood people and the strongest emotion is loneliness. The second main character is a zaftan named Klatze. She tries to advance using talent and ability in a navy that advocates assassination and treachery as the preferred methods for advancement. This novel features an android and a computer falling in love, a naval officer struggling to prove ability is better than murder, piracy on a galactic scale, a robotic zealot, humor and satire. What more could a reader ask for?

  1. Hank Quense has done it again! Three hundred years after the conclusion of Zaftan Entrepreneurs, the gundies and the zaftans are at it again. This time in deep space. Both sides had known it was only a matter of time before they confronted each other. Now two powerful fleets face each other and wait for the other to blink. 

  2. Live To Read This book is certainly interesting. The plot is a tad reminiscent of Star Wars type technology with several twists thrown in. This book could be good for both genders too, a rarity. 

  3. Science Fiction Mayheim ZAFTAN MISCREANTS is a science fiction novel that pits the Zaftans and the Gundies against one another. Ensign Sam is an android, who was created by the navy. Sam is sent on mission aboard the Gundy flagship Tiger. Sam is an android, though she is finding something odd with her sensory -human like (or softie) emotions that she thinks is a test or flaw of some sort. She reports to Admiral Cunningham, who is impressed by the pretty human like android. Their mission is to engage the Zaftan fleet, a group of raiders or pirates that exploit other planets. Slash 9 is a computer, who runs the Tiger and thinks he rules the ship, demanding Sam’s obedience. Sam thinks the computer’s God like visionary is ludicrous. But Slash 9 is impressed by Sam and her intelligence, wanting to know more about the human emotion called love and determined to find a way to make Sam love him in return.
