Summary

Having journeyed through time in order to restore peace to the galaxy, Cal Carver and Space Team are a little dismayed to find out they may have inadvertently made things even worse...whoops. 

Captured by an unfamiliar alien species, the crew is banished to a life of slavery in the Mustard Mines of Moktar, where they come face to face with the sinister Manacle - a terrying new enemy whose diabolical agenda is worse than any they have encountered before. 

With the clock ticking and thousands of lives at stake, Space Team must race across the galaxy, stop Manacle's evil scheme, and save the day once more. 

But first, they have to escape....

Featuring space gnomes, sand stomachs, and the sexiest facial paralysis in history, Space Team: Sting of the Mustard Mines is the 10th explosive adventure in the Space Team series, and the perfect jumping-on point for new listeners.

hilarious, love the outtakes

The more of these stories I listen to the more like Terry Pratchett he sounds. I've just got to start the next in the series now, even though it's 02:50 on a Friday morning.

😂🤣🤣

I'm repairing some major water damage to my home, which is depressing, but Space Team continues to making me wet my pants and keep me sane. I can't listen in bed because I'll wake my wife up with snorts of laughter. The gags are getting better as the series goes on. Funking awesome.

great fun as always

another whirlwind crazy fonking adventure by the currently untitled crew. I love Cal repeating what Splurt has said to the others (he's gotten really good at it now) My favourite quote of this book is probably 'the elephant of surprise'

Funcking funny 😂

This is the funniest in the series so far! Mr Hutchinson the characters are just brilliant. I laughed out loud several times during this book, great fun. Where do you get the ideas from and I bet you just love writing Carl’s lines knowing that Mr Thron is going to have to laugh out loud.
Great story awaiting the next one👍😎

Mr Thron you have brought all these people to life (and in Cal’s case dead and back again again and so on). I really like them all thank you 😊. The out-takes are brilliant, as I heard you read the toilet scene I laughed and at the same time knowing that you would also and I was right. Brilliant.

Just love it!

Keep these books coming. I love the story and the narrator is awesome. I laughed out loud regularly, insighting odd looks on a quiet train in rush hour. Lots of fun.

Amazingly funny. Best sci series ever

Space Team defies the law of diminishing returns, as this series just gets better and better. Ive read a lot of books and most tend to repeat patterns, but ever book of Space Team feels original, you dont feel like you're reading the same story told in a slightly different way. These are without doubt the funniest books that I has listened to. The Mustard Mines, just like the others, had me laughing out loud constantly, which can be embarrassing when your listening to the book whilst in the supermarket. I've seen the author say these are like Hitchhikers guide, but they're not, they are much much better

Better and better each fonking book!

Hey look at that, im the first review. haha. Anyway, I have now tackled 10 Space Teams, 3 Deadman detective stories and 1 Sidekicks Initiative from Barry and I have to say all of them a freaking awesome. These are not only hilarious but really good stories to boot. Been loving every minute of them. Keep it up man!

Full of warm, gooey awesomeness

This was another great Space Team book! Story was fun and Phil does great giving each character their own personality! I’ve really enjoyed all the Space Team books, but having the bloopers at the end of the last few ones has made them even better! You can’t help but laugh when Phil messes up and starts laughing.

Just a Fun read

I’m gonna give anyone a Cal Carver guarantee they’ll like this book and entire series. It’s packed with adventure, villains, hero’s, and enough humor to make your sides hurt from laughing.

STILL AWESOME

I can't imagine after the first ones that you would be hesitating on this one. Really I'm shocked you didn't pre-order it unless you're late to the space party in that case come on catch up.

Brilliantly done as always

Unlike many series I’ve read over the years, each of the Space Team universe books is consistently excellent. The story lines are compelling. The characters are fully developed. And in addition to being laugh-out-loud funny, there is always an underlying current of warmth and humanity. And did I mention they’re awesomely funny?
