Additional Information

Start series with the first book, Date Night on Union Station

Over half of Earth's population has left the planet, mainly as contract workers for aliens, and the homeworld is losing relevance to the emigrants. The EarthCent president takes on the task of making sure that humanity isn't permanently stuck in a rut as low-skilled labor. Can the ambassador put aside her new-found obsession with the Galactic Free Press crossword puzzle and help save the day?

I've read all 9 books in the series and will continue on because the characters are charming, quirky, funny and oddly relatable (even the aliens). I'm not sure of the storylines, however. They hardly keep you on the edge of your seat or in bated breath. There is no build up, story arc or satisfying conclusion to anything remotely dramatic. Instead of a turbulent water rapids ride with twists, turns and waterfall cliffs, Mr. Foner floats us down a lazy, meandering creek of events, actions and encounters, with haphazard humor and lovable creatures you enjoy and yearn to know. Each character via their dialogue is familiar despite the strange alien techno-futuristic babble ever common in sci-fi literature. He'll poke fun at world politics, economics, higher education and even pop culture, but with tongue-in-cheek good nature and just enough wisdom so as not to be pretentious.

I'm hooked and I always get bored. By the time the third one rolls out, you're bored to death. Not with these. The dry sense of humor keeps you chuckling and you really do want to what happens next to the characters. For myself, I want to see what happens with Samuel and his Princess (hint). Well written, clean, fun fiction; I love it.
I highly recommend this series. Granted, if you’re a hard core hard sci-fi fan, it might not be your cup of tea. In terms of plot, the story told by the first nine books (the end of the series at the time I’m writing this review) could be set just as well in a medieval town ruled by a powerful, manipulative, but benevolent overlord (in this story, the Stryx). The main characters in that setting would be moderately educated, moderately skilled craftsmen and soldiers made responsible for settling disputes among local townsfolk and negotiating trade pacts with neighboring towns that have significantly different cultural customs than their own. In this case, if you haven’t already picked it up from other reviews, the setting is a futuristic space station – which the author does a lovely job of bringing to life.

Given the caveat about hard sci-fi, and avoiding spoilers, I’ll just say that the series is superbly written and highly entertaining... Read more
