Rednecks in Spaaaaace! A lighthearted, farcical space opera about Drewcila Qwah, a spacegoing garbage and scrap dealer, and the kingdom of Barious she sets out to save from its post-war depression.

I enjoyed this book. It's light and funny, but at the same time it's dealing with issues faced by real world countries in similar situations.

A fun romp with good characters, and great cover art. There wasn't a lot of space action in the tale. Not quite a 4 star story but close, definitely more than a 3.

Low space opera, trash talking, foul-mouthed, yet with a sense of humor.
Very enjoyable. Entertaining characters and funny.
