Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future?
Don't let this happen to you!
Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.
But now Tom faces his greatest challenge yet. Despite being assigned the wrong - and woefully inadequate - intern, Tom must still provide quality customer service to multiple alternate Earths, all while battling tentacle monsters, legions of the damned, an evil call center in Nebraska, and his archnemesis, Jeff Conundrum. Armed with his Combat Wombat and a sense of fair play, can Tom survive? And will Jimmy the Intern ever discover his inner insurance agent?
It's time to kick ass and adjust claims.
Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) performs Larry Correia's madcap interdimensional tale of underwriting and space travel, where the only thing scarier than tentacle monsters is a high deductible.

I'm still chuckling over his manatee impressions.... So great I had to listen again :)
A man with a child in his ears - @shutterspin.
This one does exactly what it says on the tin, if you like the sound of the publisher’s blurb you are going to love it. Inter-space hi jinks and an insurance agent super hero. The humour is constant. The opening scenes had me laughing from the get go and the laughter continued with impressively high frequency for the whole two hours.
If you get this kind of humour then it’s great fun and Master Correia drags in many well-known personalities and even finds time to poke fun at himself in a variety of ways. One person that definitely gets the humour is Adam Baldwin who gives it the full Scooby Doo and no mistake!
Nothing is sacred, most of Europe and Asia is gone within the first ten minutes and everyone from John Wayne to a Balrog gets dragged in during this all-too-brief adventure. The Balrog’s “predicament” I found seriously funny along with the help system on the Combat Wombat!
On top of all that it’s free, at least for now! What can possibly go wrong? If you want a laugh just get it. The only people I wouldn’t recommend this to are call centre managers . . .
OMG hilarious sci-fi story ... I've got to get me a wombat-combat it kicks ass ... also an awesome customer satisfaction focused story we don't hear enough about them ...
Just ridiculous. Wonderfully entertainingly ridiculous. Packed full of references so you feel all special when you get them and told with the enthusiasm of a 9 year old The performance is cracking. Quality customer service.
So having listened to some pretty heavy sci-fi recently i really needed someone lighter to listen to and this appeared so i though i would give it a try. I was hooked from the start. Its very very very funny on a lot of levels and you really dont need to plug your brain in to listen. Not that its not clever.
I would recommend this for anyone who likes things likes things like Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy or Any of the Jim Butcher books.
hilarious story. brilliant narration by one of my favourite actors. i would love to hear more from these guys
great short story, funny quick paced with lots of funny name dropping and wish I was on the earth where firefly had 5 seasons ;)
I usually read quite epic fantasy/syfy and this was a great break away.
I found the cheesy narration exactly what the story needed.
"Someone owes me a new keyboard"
This is the funniest thing I've heard in years, and Adam Baldwin's performance only makes it better. His mastery of the Manatee language is unparalleled. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to listen to it again.
"Most Unlikely Hero Ever!"
I just finished listening to this and am not quite sure what hit me.
Larry Correia has invented the most unlikely hero ever: an insurance agent dedicated to satisfying his customers' insurance needs because poor customer service is the ultimate sin. If you can suspend your disbelief and wrap your mind around THAT wild idea, you are in for an equally wild ride.
Garfield the Cat is a Dark God, Bear Grylls is a metric, Chuck Norris is a KickA** Arbiter and Terminators are people too. Many of our favorite sci-fi heroes and shows make cameo appearances, including the author himself.
Of course the hero has his burden to bear: the intern with the gender-studies degree. But Tom Stranger carries on with panache.
Adam Baldwin was terrific. You need to listen to this. Now.
"Two Hours of Gut Busting Laughs!"
I LOVED this story; it was freaking HILARIOUS!
Not only was this story creative, fun to listen too, and full of interesting characters, I could actually relate it! I work for one of the largest insurance companies where the claims department is one on end of the building, and the call center is on the opposite side and I'm in the middle. While I do love my job, the next time I'm having a bad day, I putting on my headphones, turning The Adventures of Tom Stranger, and just going laugh it off!
Adam Baldwin's narration was over the top AWESOME! He really animated this story and I loved his performance!
Thank you for Larry for such a great story!
"Inside jokes & strange humor (not in a good way)"
The concept is actually kind of interesting, but while the author tried hard to put a lot of comedy in this book, most of it is pretty bad. I'm a geek and proud of it, I'm a sci-fi fan, more so than the average joe, but less so than a cosplayer. Even so, I felt like there were a lot of inside jokes that went right over my head. Then again, if they were as bad as the jokes I did get, then I wasn't missing much.
"fun culture references, too much politics"
Adam Baldwin was an awesome narrator. The story was short and sweet and packs a punch with references and banter. The pointed contemporary political commentary kept kicking me out of the story. Come on Larry, this is my escape from that crap. In a longer story or series like MHI, the politics help the story and develope the charachter. In my opinion it was too concentrated for so short a story.
"Do not drink coffee while listening to this"
Yes, it is the second funniest thing ever after that killer joke from Monty Python! It is totally ridiculous and hilarious. As a devotee of comedy of the absurd I immensely enjoyed both the story and Mr. Baldwin's reading.
R. Lee Ermy as the secretary of defense! 'Nuff said!
No, but he does a fantastic job.
Too many to list in the space provided
Buy it now and laugh until you cry!
"just sooo good"
excellent self-aware writing, packed with great references, read in an expert one man ensemble of voice acting.
I just want to see more of this world so bad. Larry's ability to transform ordinary work positions into badass warriors has been in the background of several series he's written, and it just gets better here.
"Baldwin was awesome on the voiceover"
The writing is funny enough but Baldwin puts it over the top. Lots of fun.
"YOUR IN STRANGE HANDS, WITH STRANGER AND STRANGER"
WHAT'S A CANADIAN?
When you can travel between dimensions and encounter different you's, different but similar worlds, the laughs and possibilities are infinite. Think of a world in which there is no Canada or in which Cookie Monster is a bad guy. HE DREW HIS DRY ERASE MARKER FROM HIS DRY ERASE HOLDER. It may sound scary, but you will be okay if your country has insurance with STRANGER AND STRANGER, whose multiple TOM STRANGER agents are the best in the multiverse, and it is all held together by CHUCK NORRIS.
This is laugh out loud, roll on the ground funny. I have not laughed this hard since my last Scalzi novel. I understand it is only free till June 21st, so get it now, and by all means if you travel in free fall, watch out for the INCOMING SECOND HAND NACHOS.
"Should be required reading for all school kids"
This is by far, one of the best, if not the best, books I've ever listened to. Larry needs to write more short story's like this. Hilarious listen, awesome narration.
