Description

From ‘A giant of twentieth-century science fiction’ (Guardian), the adventures of Pirx, a hapless everyman in outer space’By now he fancied himself something of a rocket jockey, a space ace, whose real home was among the planets’In a future where space travel has become routine and unremarkable, Pirx the pilot bumbles and daydreams his way through the solar system. These endearing tales follow his progress from cadet to captain. But, whether he is wrestling with a misbehaving spacesuit, feeling uncomfortable on a luxury space cruise ship or encountering a mysterious malfunctioning robot on a mission to Mars, the hapless Pirx just can’t stop things from going terribly wrong.Translated by Louis Iribarne
