Mars, it's a hell of a long way from Huddersfield.

Sci-Fi Comedy – “The Worst Man on Mars” by Mark Roman and Corben Duke - https://www.amazon.co.uk...

 
Hero. Legend. Role model. He’s none of those.

Flint Dugdale, blunt Yorkshireman and reality TV show winner, has used his large frame and ‘persuasive personality’ to take charge of Britain’s first mission to Mars.

Little does he know that the base – built by an advance party of incompetent robots – is not quite ready yet, with no food, no water and no doors. Worse, the ship’s scanners are picking up strange signals from the surface.


There is life down there. But will it be pleased to see him?

Flint’s training for the mission is going really well. Here he is alongside Starman in Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster!

This hero of yours, Corben, doesn't look very heroic. You should write about the bloke on the right.

I've just noticed we have the same book in our signature. What are the chances of that happening?

I’ve just calculated the odds of writing a book containing the same words in the same order with the same cover … it’s 4.3 zillion zillion zillion to 1. Did you use the infinite-monkeys-and-typewriters method to write your book?

Infinite monkeys? I wish. Sadly, I only had the help of a single chimp.
