Micky’s 4 star review

This book makes me think that it needs its own genre – Sci-fi-fantasy-com (as in comedy). This book is formatted like a traditional travel guide. The hardback is smaller than your normal book and inside it’s all travel destination-orientated, what you need to know before you visit. For example, you get people, creatures, sights, entertainment, wildlife, outings, currency and more.

Hilariously, space itself had its own chapter, with lots of imagination and fun. The illustrations, maps, pictures and formatting were well thought out and made the book have that travel-guide appeal. What’s enjoyable about this book is that you don’t have to devour front to back, you can go a chapter at a time, a destination at a time. If I wasn’t rushing to read for review, I would have taken it slower.

I feel like you have to be at least a part-time geek to enjoy this book but many like me will fit into this defintion and find this book wildly entertaining. The travel guide narrator is humerous and there are editorial comments as footnotes which I was less keen on.

This was fun concept, easy to read and a great addition to the shelf for any SFF fan. Thank you to Harper Voyager for the gifted copy.
