Gun Ship

A novel by

Stranded, Loham Babar has spent the last fifteen months living amongst humans. During the day, he’s a South Chicago high school janitor, slopping a mop around from nine o’clock to three o’clock five days a week. At night, hiding out in an old boarded-up factory, he attends to his damaged interstellar spacecraft—making repairs—counting the days when he can return to his homeworld of Calunoth. All he needs to do is mind his own business—avoid any messy human dramas for just a few more weeks. But it is on one of those quiet nights when he hears them outside—the MP140s. Named for a police radio code for murder, these bangers are among the worst, most ruthless killers in the entire city. Peering down from the 3rd-floor window, Babar recognizes the quiet hermit boy below him, the one with the ugly facial scars, walking into a death trap. Little does Babar realize at the time that this scared, complicated, seventeen-year-old will be the key to saving the distant Realm of Dom Dynasty.

"Fantastic Military Sci Fi! Action, humor, interesting aliens, and multi-dimensional characters - just an awesome military science fiction story from Mark Wayne McGinnis. Same fun style as BV Larson, but more creative." - Barry Hecht

"OUTSTANDING SPACE OPERA! The first scifi book I read was Have Space Suit, Will Travel, by Robert Heinlein. The book hooked me on scifi for life. I have read thousands of scifi books, and was pleasantly surprised that Gun Ship compared very well with my first scifi book. Space opera, non stop action, saving the world, all that good stuff." - DBM

What an amazing Space Adventure! This was one of the most enjoyable sci fi books I've read in years. Kudos to the author for writing a truly fun space adventure. Dan Major

A Great Read! I am a big fan. Read the Scrapyard and Shipwrecked series. There is always non stop action. - Phil Leininger
