‘Toby Frost has created a very entertaining sci-fi comedy romp that openly borrows and sends up some of the most well known science fiction films and TV shows. If you don’t mind poking fun at sci-fi classics, and your nose doesn’t get bent out of shape by that sort of thing, then this is a series for you.’ Walkerofworlds.com
‘If you are in the mood for a light and funny space opera adventure, then you can’t do any better than Toby Frost’s Space Captain Smith. Very enjoyable and strongly recommended. . .’ fantasybookcritic
