In mission #1 of the hilarious Platoon F series, Lieutenant Orion Murphy finds himself scheduled for execution due to a clerical error. His only out is to undergo a complete physical makeover, get a rank and name change, and agree to take over a new platoon in the Segnal Space Marine Corps (SSMC). Seeing that it's a case of comply or die, he accepts the offer. A week later, he's standing on the bridge of the SSMC Reluctant with a misfit crew, an insane special agent, an antiquated robot mechanic, and his updated identity.
Will the newly-named Commodore Don Harr be able to get control of the ship and crew? Can they all survive their first mission, even though they're not really supposed to? And who the hell came up with this mission, anyway? Oh, and space ships on rails? Seriously? That doesn't make any damn sense at all!
After only a few days in, Commodore Harr can't help but wonder if execution may have been the better option.
Platoon F gets its influence as a hodgepodge from Monty Python, National Lampoon, Family Guy, Red Dwarf, Phule's Company, Robert Asprin, Airplane!, Naked Gun, Douglas Adams, Harry Harrison, and countless other comedic mediums. Listeners will find a new, fun, comedic SciFi world to play in. Aliens, robots, androids, space marines, time travel, galactic mayhem, and more fill the universe of Platoon F.

Another top book by the author John P Logsdon, humour, innuendo mixed in with great characters, easy listening and great fun, very much in the mould of Terry Pratchett.
Add the author to your read list you won't be disappointed.
