Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Dying isn't any fun...but at least it's a living.

Mickey7 is an Expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonise the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there's a mission that's too dangerous - even suicidal - the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. 

Mickey signed on to escape from both bad debts and boredom on Midgard.  

After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal...and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.  

When he goes missing and is presumed dead at the hands of deadly indigenous creatures, Mickey8 reports for duty and their troubles really begin.

Warning: annoying sound effects

The company that recorded this made the creative choice to have burst of static each time each character talks over the radio. Each character, every time the say something. It gets irritating very quick.

Amusing and Clever

This is a well thought out sci-fi story with likeable characters, a well conceived plot and a dry sense of humour. Certainly one to try if that sounds like your thing.
