    1. This book was provided through as a freebie by the author in exchange for an honest review. I must say, this was one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time. While the plot is essentially a murder mystery in an S-F context, the descriptions of all the human/humanoid, robotic (“Mechanicians) and alien races requires a lot of notes and re-reading (Thank God for Kindle’s “find” and “highlight” features!). OK, so here we go:So the “victims” of the murders are both Mec [...]

    2. Starliner is a comedy/mystery/detective story set in a future space city inhabited by humans, aliens and robots. A routine "murder" of a robot seems to be just another case for Dresker and the IRB to investigate, except that in this case the robots have discovered religion, which is bound to end unhappily. The story unfolds in a chaotic and absurd manner and involves crushbots, artificial penises, robots with drink problems, and donuts – lots of donuts.The book is very well-written, with polis [...]

    3. What a fun read! We've got an old-fashioned hard-nosed detective with a crew of alien investigators trying to find out what's going on with all the bots--excuse me, mechanicals--on the CCOP station. So many questions Can mechanicals get religion? Will the Starliner be their salvation? Do you prefer the iPane from Fruit or the VizScreen from NeglibileSoft? Will investigator Truhbel ever find a man that she can love without inflicting serious injury? Will Zimp escape from the Leader? Most--but not [...]

    4. An interesting approach Starliner is another fine book from John Logsdon, Though a bit of a change. While still very funny, the plot is a bit deeper, and all the characters get a bit of breathing room and a chance to develop. This isn’t better or worse than his other books, just different.

    5. writes with partner Christopher P Young sometimes, every once in a while someone else or alone, if you don't consider his probable multiple personalities thing, guilty of Ononokin series some of which are both in sets and singles, Platoon F some of which are in sets and in singles, Queen Arthur some of which are both in sets and singles, Starliner/this one, Relic, and South Lane Detective Agency some of which are are both in sets and singles. There is also a prequel to the Ononokin set which can [...]

    6. I've read quite a few books by this author at this point, but I just couldn't enjoy this one. DNF at something like 5-10%--there was nothing pushing me onwards, I didn't understand the world, and I didn't know what was going on.

    7. Very funny. I'd compare it to Red Dwarf or Hitchhikers Guide, but everyone else makes those connections already.
