Hal Spacejock

Such a great name for a character.

It’s also the name of the debut novel of a guy called Simon Hayes, one of the founding members of Andromeda Spaceways.

It was ok. I quite enjoyed it, really; Futurama has just started back up, and it’s Hal – rather than the robot Clunk – who reminds me of Bender. It wasn’t fantastic – it hasn’t changed my life, but I got a few giggles out of it. I hope Hayes continues to write and keeps getting published; I’m sure he’ll get even better, and hell it’s always good for Aussies to get published widely.
