Tired of reading scifi and fantasy stories that take themselves too seriously? Zaftan Entrepreneurs is a unique First Contact story; it is part adventure and part corporate and political satire spiced with comic relief. Here, you'll find nasty, snarly aliens, fantasy creatures, humans, romance, magic, and--just like the real world--incompetent politicians and feuding bureaucracies. What more could a fantasy/scifi reader ask for? Aliens, fantasy creatures and humans in one story? They don't mix very well. Neither do untrustworthy aliens and deceitful government bureaucrats.
