Summary

They may have recently averted a full-scale galactic war, but Cal Carver and Space Team just can't stay out of trouble.

When a Weird Space Thing™ threatens to destroy planet Earth, Cal is determined to stop it. But when they get there, they find the place is still swarming with parasitic extra-terrestrial bugs, and that there isn't a whole lot left to save.

While battling an unexpected ghost of the past, Cal is abducted by aliens. Again. Brought before their covert High Council, Cal is given a choice: save his Earth and doom countless others to oblivion, or sacrifice it, so that parallel Earths may live. Cal opts for none of the above, but his proposed solution might well doom not just his universe, but all universes everywhere.

Featuring familiar strangers, unfamiliar friends, and an angry talking sheep named Duggie, Return of the Dead Guy is the reality-shattering sixth book in the Space Team saga.

Pratchett would enjoy this

These books are like Pratchett or Douglas Adams at their best and the narrator is excellent.

A big disappointment, dont see the point.

This series is so good but this book just doesnt make sense, it feels like someone's imagination was just poured out onto a page with no real idea of structure.

I'll move onto the next book in the series hoping it gets back to the original winning formula.

Go Space Team!

I love this series. Both the writing by Mr Hutchinson and narration by Phil Thron is enthralling. Such good entertainment.

So many moments in this book which even Terry Pratchett would have been pleased with.

Dead or maybe not! These stories are real fun.

This series is fun, funny and a breath of fresh air compared to the more serious SCI FI that's out there. A nice segway into a tongue in cheek romp with action, humor and great cast of main characters. The censored curse words and insidious to. So enjoy Shiz nodes.

I love this series.

It's hilarious, and still has a great story. Much better than some so called chart toppers.

Didn't think it could get any better, I was wrong

This continues the quality of the series in spades. The humour is on point, the heartfelt moments solid, and the narration is sublime. A definite must get for any fan of Space Team.

Can't wait for the next book to get its audio book.

Leaves me wanting more

I listened through this on the way to work, I have a 56 mile one-way commute and I usually enjoy audiobooks when driving as it makes the time pass by more quickly.

While listening to this book I literally ended up in a 3 feet high snow edge at the side of th

Funny, Silly and sometimes emotional

The unexpected thing about these larger than life, laugh a minute books is that there is an excellent story woven into them. A story about loss and family and friendship. These books are not a sci-fi parody - that doesn’t do them justice at all. Sure there are laughs - lots of them - but the characters are real - fully fleshed out, likeable- they have histories - you care about them. The storyline is entertaining, fast moving and fun.
The narrator Phil Thron does a wonderful job of bringing each character to life through his or her individual voice.
Highly recommended.

Funny and surprisingly sweet

Each Space Team story leaves me a little more satisfied and impressed with the author's ability to bring fresh laughs and surprising moments of sweet sentimentality. Narrator Phil Thron deserves extra kudos for the pace at which he is cranking out audiobooks for this series. Keep 'me coming.

I loved this book, The whole series was great.this one was my favorite so far but you have to listen to them in order and all of them to get the most out of it. it is space adventures with great characters. I fear this is the last one though.

Better every book

This one was my favorite so far........ even though there was a pretty blatant Rick and Morty "Counsel of Ricks" rip off lmfao. Still a great book, in a great series. Can't wait for the rest.

Great read!

Sometimes space stories can get complicated when they begin to introduce clones and alternate dimensions and dimension jumping; however, this book did a great job of keeping it clear while not losing its humor and the lovability of the characters! Good job for that!
