Have you read Yoss's Super Extra Grande? Let us know what you thought!


Shelley George | 23 comments It was a fun little book but I felt I was reading a well done Wiki offering but not a lot of story. 
It had a good variety of descriptions of aliens. 
And it proves that even future male humans only have sex on their minds.

A fun, quick read. In a future where faster than light travel was discovered by an Ecuadorian priest, and Spanglish is the common language used among the seven known intelligent races, a "veterinarian to giants" has to rescue two people from a 200-kilometer wide amoeba. Neat to see a future where Hispanic culture has become prominent, and there's a lot of humor (and one literal laugh-out-loud moment for me).


Alex | 3 comments Enjoyable read. The tone had the feeling of parody to it; the author recognizes the value of the far-reaching many-alien-races space epic while also asking the reader to consider the rest of the cultures of Earth as valid influences in that sphere - all with a light-hearted and funny narrative. Pretty good for such a short book!
