Review of High Noon on Phobos by Jude K. Justice

High Noon on Phobos, the debut novella from space western author Jude K. Justice, is a rollicking adventure of twists and turns that will appeal to fans of the western genre and fans of science fiction.

Blaise McGregor (who went by Blaze McGregor as a gunfighter) is a retired gunfighter, waiting for his ship to be repaired. But when a kid shows up in the bar he’s drinking in to hire him for a job, Blaise can hardly say no, especially when he finds out whose kid it is. From there, he’s off to Phobos, a moon with cattle ranchers and their vile counterparts, cattle rustlers. What awaits him there isn’t half as simple as the kid made it out to be.

High Noon on Phobos is a fun read, even when the protagonist is in a heap of trouble (an event that happens quite frequently). If you enjoyed the Firefly series, you’ll find similar humorous dialogue and one problem after another that often plagued the crew of Serenity.

The author provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for review consideration.
