"Fun Science Fiction"
In 1969 Las Vegas, Wayne Norton is proud to be a Las
Vegas police officer. Although twenty-one he remains a
virgin who loves his girlfriend Susie and hopes to
consummate their union soon. Before that can happen he
sees Susie's father, a gangster, kill some rivals in cold
blood. Her father then punches his lights out and puts him
in a cryogenic sleep chamber. He wakes up three hundred
years in the future to a world he doesn't know.
He's immediately drafted into GalactiCop and sent to
Hideaway, an exotic pleasure playground. He is on such a
top-secret mission that he doesn't even know what it is.
While trying on some clothes, he meets a beautiful woman
named Kiru who escaped a penal planet with a bunch of space
pirates. Wayne finally loses his virginity before he and
Kiru are arrested. They both escape their captors but
become separated which means there won't be a happily ever
after ending for this couple or will there?
BIKINI PLANET is a fun science fiction novel that
doesn't take itself seriously at all. It is a satire on
the entire "grave -- save the universe" space opera novels
and movies that are so prevalent in fiction today. David
Garnett has a delicious sense of humor, which he shows off
to perfection in ironically this one of a kind novel.
