"A perfect blend of science fiction and alternate history.";'If Space Taxis does not sound like a story that sprang out of the minds of two wildly imaginative storytellers, no story ever will... Adam and Harriet Frosh have written a novel that is a triumph of high adventure. This can even translate to an entertaining film adaptation that would have an appeal-like Total Recall or The Fifth Element. Redolfo's abduction, his time spent on another planet, and how it changes him are what give the story life, depth, and humanity. Reading it is a good form of cerebral entertainment.' Readers' Favorite;'I absolutely loved Redolfo's story.' Netgalley;'Fans of both science fiction and historical fiction will love Space Taxis - five stars.' Eric Balch, Author of Assault on Devil's Den;Space Taxis has been awarded the 5-star seal by Readers' Favorite.
