Author’s Summary

The year is 2252 and Loman Phin is in trouble. A washed-up channelship racer turned freelancer, he hits pay dirt with his latest mission: a fortune is on the line if he can transport forty-three kilograms of human skin to a remote villa on Pluto’s moon, Nix. Little does he know his very life is at stake when he gets caught up in an ancient feud, chased by a space vampire, and forced into a death-race by the king of Ceres. Meanwhile, danger is always hot on his heels in the form of a massive space freighter out for Loman’s blood. With just his wits, his friends, and his beat-up cruiser, the Slant Six, Loman sets out on the most dangerous adventure of his life. “I just read The Slant Six by Christopher F. Cobb,” said Piers Anthony, New York Times Best-selling Author. “And this is a wild one! If you want something that’s completely different, this is your ticket!”

Scifi thrills!

This book is out of this world! I really enjoy reading new books by authors I haven't yet been exposed to, and I must say, I am very impressed. You've got some quality scifi thrills in The Slant Six!

Death races, sexy space vampires, & a darn good time!

I love good sci fi, and author Cobb can write. It's a no nonsense thrill ride through space. I really dig how the spaceships are all like classic rides from our universe in the 60's and 70's. That's a cool touch I've not seen other writers do in other books I've read. You've got other twists you don't see in sci fi, like a sexy space vampire out for more than just blood. The death race on the planet Ceres rocked! That was probably my favorite part of the book, it was like being at a racetrack with space ships like Indy cars. There were a few things I wish the author would have fleshed out more (the chairman, and willikan), but these are minor things. More like personal peeves. They won't distract from your enjoyment of the story. Mr. Cobb: I WANT MORE!

A wild ride with classic cruisers as spaceships

Buckle up and hold on, this is a wild ride. It's a scifi world where all the space ships are based on classic cars. But it's not all just glimmer, there's substance too. I loved the ending, it reminds me of the classic car films I watched in the seventies.
