Summary

Bodega: Tales from the Bodegaverse contains all the episodes of Bodega previously transmitted via the Triforce Podcast, and heaps more Bodega action besides.

Bodega. Lover. Sniper. Thief. Scourge of the wicked. In fact, scourge of anyone if there's money to be made. A lawless man in a galaxy overrun by villains, Mork beasts, Dildonians, and the dreaded imperial forces of Crem Slumdump. Aided by his otherwise unemployable crew of drunks, criminals, assassins, and broken down combat droids, Bodega seeks fortune, and trouble seeks him. Armed with his array of hi-tech gadgets, and of course his famous las-gun, Bodega careens around the corners of the known Universe in his ship, the Disco Volante, guided by his unique sense of justice, and his love for the psychic entity known only as Majesta.

What're ya waiting for, pard?

holy flarv

the characters in Bodega are more well rounded and loveable than a spurloopian's bosoms

PURE JOY!

I remember listening to Triforce Podcast episode 19 where Pflax made Bodega on the fly and then hearing the short story in the following episode. Even though it all started 4 years ago, it's simply incredible to see how far Ted has come with this character, this story, this universe! I'll always be around to enjoy anything and everything Bodega and if you're someone who doesn't know what this is, you'd be a fool to miss out on the absolute gem!

An entertaining introduction to the Bodegaverse

As an avid fan of both the yogscast and the Triforce podcast, I was not disappointed by the extended work put into the Bodega Universe. The story, although a little fragmented in places, captured my attention and in places genuinely left me on the edge of my seat waiting for resolution, particularly in the later half of the book. The writing style invokes Douglas Adam's Hitchiker's Guide, its comedy and general tone very much on par. The universe is fantastically fleshed out, filled with larger-than-life characters that while at first seem based upon tropes, do certainly develop and come out into their own. The combination of simultaneously assuming the listener (or reader) understands the mysterious alien technology or weaponry while also delving into deep and complex explanation of some minor detail keeps the flow of the story remarkably well. Forsyth's delivery of the story is excellent in places, but often I feel fails to convey some emotion or sense of dramatic reveal, particularly in ending lines of chapters. While his voices, speed and mannerisms gave for an enjoyable listen, I think time could be taken to deliver important lines, grand finishes and sudden developments could be improved as I often felt jarred out of the experience by a seemingly hastly delivered paragraph finisher (with the exception of the podcast content). Overall, an excellent read for existing fans of the Bodegaverse, delivering on the promise made for more Bodega content and leaving me wanting more, with only a few minor criticisms. I can't wait for the next instalment.

Flarving incredible!

I loved hearing the stories every week on the Triforce podcast and it was a sad day when they stopped being included, it felt like a part of the podcast was missing. But to see the story completed and to such a high quality is incredible, the writing is top notch and the Tamira focused store is possibly one of my favourite Sci-Fi concepts of all time. I thought about buying the physical book when it was reelased but I needed to wait to be able to hear the man himself read it, it wouldn't be Bodega without Pyrion's narration. Incredible stories Pyrion, now for the love of flarv get working on the sequel!

My partner got me this book after she heard me listen to the podcast. We enjoyed every minute of it together and I am keeping my fingerscrossed for a second book.

Fun but anticlimactic

The stories and settings are fun, entertaining, and very creative - but it's pretty anticlimactic. Forsyth has great ideas and setups, but often fails to follow through on them in a satisfying way. Overall a fun enough book with good narration by the author.

Interesting, thrilling, fun and in you’re face theme

Interesting, and thrilling with a superb performance from the author. Though as a personal preference, better follow through of the story would make it a 5 star overall, with that said it’s not that type of a book. And if u find this book interesting I saw that some of the part are “animated” on YouTube, Worth watching !!!

Best thing since the Triforce Podcast

I listened to the chapters way back when Edward/Pyrion was writing them and sharing it on the Triforce Podcast. When I saw that there was an audiobook version out, I had to get it. Pyrion weaves a captivating storyline into a colorful and creative sci fi universe, and I had trouble pausing it. 10/10. If you're looking for an independent sci fi book to get into that has had tons of love, care, and wit put into it, Bodega is the way to go.
